Colin,

Anything over 2.0% is good IMO.

I think thats a pretty hard question to answer. Ive had campaigns where Ive been happy with 2% and other campaigns where my CTR has been around 15%.

What I think is really important is to get it as high as you can for that campaign. Sometimes competition is really tough and youve gotta try and get one over them.

Are you rotating a couple of ads at a time, to see which ones get the best response?

I was running a few other ads. I had the same keywords in each and just changed the headline and description a bit, butI've deleted the under performing ads already.

I'm setting up the landing page at thhe moment.

This is a question which depends on your product and return on investment. You always want to try for a 50-100% ROI. A great click thru rate would be anything from 20-45%. This will take time to achieve.

Wow, that would be really sweet. Your CPC will go down a lot if you have those sort of CTRs.
