Hey guys, can anyone recommend me a good AdSense theme for high CTR? I know different themes work differently for each of us depending on a lot of factors, but it would be nice to see the ones that are working for you as reference when choosing a theme. Thanks

      Thanks UW and to all who've suggested my product here. Its really appreciated and I'm constantly improving my software to make raving fans of each and every owner :-)

      To Mesmerist and anyone else who might be considering a theme purchase:

      I've just released an "Express" version of my theme (see sig below) that's priced very aggressively (less than half the cost of CTR, for example) and comes with my newest premium template (Amaze) that's configurable in about 100 ways, shapes and sizes. Its also included with ClickBump Engine 13-in-1 and my Bundle package.

      I'm about to release version 4.4 that has support for Google +1, Facebook and Twitter and social sharing baked in without the need for plugins.

      Perhaps most importantly, if you want a site that's unique and doesn't look like every other site out there, my theme has something the others can't match: unlimited designs that plug in with a single click.

      For example, when you purchase my theme, you are getting a framework that can instantly morph into one of several dozen designs. And I'm releasing more every month.

        Hi Scot,
        I'm very interested in your theme, but wish to know if it works only for blogs, or if its okay for both blogs and websites.
        I've just recently set up 2 websites, and i haven't earned zilch, and feel i need to do something.
        If its okay for websites, i definitely want it because it seems so highly recommended.

        I am impressed with the theme. I like the ease of use where you can just enter in your publisher ID one time in the CTR Theme dashboard. There are 7 different Ad layouts to choose from....you can have the theme rotate thru all of them, or some of them, or just choose to display the same layout for your visitors. I'm still testing out which ones work for me.

        You can turn off ads from displaying on individual posts and most importantly your privacy page, contact us, about, etc. There's a ton of other features you can read about in Eppie's WSO too.

    No question which is the best - The Clickbump theme is by far the best product on the market. Scott has done an amazing job with both the base theme itself as well as all the various templates he's come out with. Add his SEO! product to the mix and you've got an unbeatable combination.

    If any of you are doing business in the offline marketing arena, be sure to check out his Biz Local product as well. Same great components of his Clickbump Theme, but targeted very nicely to the local business.

    I've been using his products for nearly 2 years now and couldn't be happier with not only the theme, but his support as well. Second to none in my mind.

    Seriously build your own. Wordpress makes it easy and you have the heatmap to guide you.

    It's almost crazy to use the same (ctr theme, clickbump) that are used by thousands of other websites. Yes it will work in the short term. But think! ...the average internet user has probably seen exactly the same layout several times already with the ads in the exact same position.

      I own several Clickbump themes and will now not use any other WP Themes. He has a whole suite of themes depending on your needs. I can also vouch for his oustanding customer support. He is continually improving his products and offering new ones all of the time. I give my whole hearted endorsement for Scott's themes.

        Clickbump for me! I now have 3 blogs running it including a neglected "test" blog. I can't rcommend it highly enough! Every blog has experienced a growth in traffic. It is not "just another theme".

        Scott will also go the extra mile in customer support.

    Just thought I'd add my thoughts. I have around 50 sites on mainly semiologic pro (which is very good by the way).

    One of my sites was ranked nowhere in Google. Last week I bought the Clickbump theme and installed the Amaze theme onto it. The same site now sits in position 4 on page 1 of Google.

    Not only are the templates brilliant to work with, the support from the creator Scott and his team is up there with the best I've ever experienced in over 6 years of being online.

    Ive tried almost every website builder, WP theme etc. there is and none have been as impressive and as easy to work with as the clickbump engine.

    Double thumbs up from me!!

    So much good stuff "baked in" with this theme, I could write a novel.

    Highest recommendation and the support and upgrades Scott is constantly providing are beyond compare.

        Confirmed!
        Stop the YouTube video themesplice posted at exactly 5:36. And see the appalling Daily Page CTR of 0.28% of Adsense For Content.

        1987 pageviews yielding 21 clicks = 0.0105687 = 1.05686965%.
        1.05686965% / 0.28% = 3.77453447 pages where the 21 clicks came from.

        2 Years ago (when I gave up on Adsense) I had a daily page CTR of just 1.2%, max. And with a lot less page views.
        And that was without any special Adsense themes or bundles.
        Now I'm getting from 2% - 4% Daily CTR with manually built (no special Adsense theme or bundles).

        Why should I pay ctrthemes.com for bringing that down to 0.28% ?

        Remember we are talking about the fact that these products should be increasing CTR.

        Even when the 0.28% is just after Google's cut off point of the previous day, it would take a tremendous effort from the theme to get anywhere near 2% - 4% on that same day. Because the pageviews are already sky high.

        Increasing a daily CTR of 0.28% shouldn't be too hard. With another product.

        This is about the CTR Themes product, not the CTR Theme product.

        EDIT:
        And one more thing. Does anyone of you have the red squigly underlining in your Adsense account ?
        See the screenshot below, under the words Adsense, earnings, Details ยป.
        Well I don't. Looks like we're looking at a spelling checker in action here.
        The Reply editor of Warriorforum gives the same red squigly lines under the word Adsense.
        Also the word adsense, in the comment on the YouTube site under the clip, does not have the red squigly line under it. If the Google Adsense page in the video clip is also a regular webpage, I wonder what happened.
        Unless Google displays their Adsense webpages through a spellchecker of course.

      CTR theme is paid theme.
      I suggest you use some free theme for the time being until you make enough money to purchase a paid theme.
      The reason behind this strategy is that it will give you confidence to tweak the various themes and it's always wise to make some money first rather investing it w/o seeing some potential results.

      For the start i recommend 2 themes:
      Blue Sense
      Flexibility 3

      F3 is highly customizable theme and graphics looks real good. You can tweak it to get good CTR w/o worrying about paid themes.

    CTR Themes are dead. Anyone really banking from adsense will not risk their account. On a manual review your finished.

I then waited for 2 days and it's still not showing in my adsense reports overview. It is tracking my other ads that are using other themes but not the ones in the site that's using ProSense. Am I doing something wrong here? Can someone please help

        Hey Profilelinks,

        Why are you resurrecting every single thread that has anything to do with CTR and adsense themes just to push "adsense pro ultimate"?

        There are currently a total of 8 threads on the front page of the adsense/ SEO forum all having to do with "best CTR themes". Amazingly, you are there chiming in on every one promoting that theme.

        Coincidence?

        If you are going to blatantly promote something, try to make it less obvious. I'm in this forum every day and I have never seen it spammed with so many "CTR Theme" related threads at the same time. If you were researching and looking for answers, that would be one thing but you seem to just be peddling and not offering anything of value.

        Stop spamming my favorite forum!!

        To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.
