Hi @taewoo;

CTR is so broad metric, dependent on so many variables, that the same answer which applies  when asking about a  good CTR on Serach, applies to GDN.

On GDN "active view viewable CTR" is a better performing metric than the classic CTR,

Having said that a rule of thumb would be that you should  aim to CTR of 1% on GDN, and double that value for "active view viewable CTR".

On top of what Moshe said, it's important to understand that it's all relative to performance on each individual site. A bad CTR on one site does not have an effect on the ad being served on another site. When viewing in aggregate, I think 1% is a bit lofty for a standard. From my experience, anything above 0.1% will get you a decent reach.

my mistake. I read into it that relative was being used as an adjective for CTR, not the "relative CTR" column. I don't know if there is a good answer for this. It is not a metric I would be too worried about if others I consider more important looked good. Not all display campaigns have the goal of driving clicks.

@taewoo ;

As @David K  - I understood  relative as an adjective,

I agree with David. I like to analyze   the raw data of  the campaign performance myself, and compare myself  to other campaigns run by the same advertiser.
