I know that this subject was overtalked,but I want to be sure that I know which theme should I pick.

Right now Im using bluesense wordpress theme and it seems to be working just fine for me,but I heard that CTR theme and clickbump themes are also very very good.

What are your thoughts about the best adsense themes,which themes give you the highest click rate?

      \

      so your determination of software being good or not is if you can get if for free? not exactly a good method of choosing IMO

      You cannot get CTR Theme free LEGALLY.

      CTR Theme is being supported again. Eppie has been replying to support tickets, at least that's what I'm being told by CTR Theme users lately.

      I'd highly recommend Clickbump theme. The base Amaze template you get with the Clickbump Engine for $17 is amazing...And even more amazing is Scott's support.

    You can customize Clickbump WAY more than you can CTR
    so there is no way that CTR gets better CTR ratios unless the webmaster doesnt know how to control the settings

    They are both customizable but Clickbump has way more settings IMO

    The guys that keep preaching theme support makes a WP theme better than the rest are full of BS, they haven't tested very many themes, I'm sure just by how they are stuck on a single theme.

    I've been in Adsense for 5 years & tested at least a hundred themes (no joke).

    The Adsense theme needs to be very simple in design, very few theme images + very few post images.

    You don't need support past day #1 after installing a theme, either the theme works or it doesn't!

    If it doesn't work by day #2, get a refund!

    I've used Wordpress themes from 2007 that have never been updated & they still work today!

    Who the heck needs support on day 97 for a theme? Get real!

        Some common things I've found in all of my own sites is:
        • Adsense above the fold.
        • WP theme is very simple in design (very few images to distract traffic).
        • Best performing Ad block for me is Top Center of the page with a Text Ad.

        If you already have the CTRtheme (I think you said you did) then test the theme on your own site/traffic.

        Don't slap the theme on the site & 2 days later say the CTR sucks, I'm moving on to another theme. Colors & Ad block location can increase/decrease CTR by large percentages on the same theme, you have to test it yourself, nobody can do these things for you.

        Anytime you make a change to the page (colors, Ad location, Ad size, etc...) make sure to track the data for at least a week before making new changes, it doesn't matter If you lose money for that week (trust me on this, think long term), you have to track the data & that will tell you which theme combo is best for your site.

        Everything I said above is exactly why CTRtheme has Ad rotation built into the site, it's for testing & gathering data to determine what actually gets higher CTRs.

        Keep in mind, I'm not selling CTRtheme so I don't really care If anyone ever buys the theme or not. I like the theme & what it has to offer (simplicity & Ad rotation).

        Test, test, test...
        I agree with yukon, testing is very important. I use both the ctr theme and the clickbump them, played around with them and found they actually both give similar ctr on sites of the same niche, while they can still do poorly on some of my other sites that are of a different niche. I think ctr has a lot also to do with your niche as well as other things, such as your blog posts, if you have other "distracting" images or videos on your site etc. Basically get rid of them and keep your site looking clean, simple and basically boring!

            I disagree with you on this. I recently bought adsense pro ultimate CTR wordpress theme for one of my clients and they are just wonderful in its functionality and outcome. It has;

            wigitized sidebars,
            drop down menus
            Advanced control panels and the list goes on and on...

            I mean, who would want to buy out dated themes that don't support wordpress completely, but this on the other hand is a work well done by the developers of the site...

    "TAKE ACTION" is the first thing everyone tells you and then they leave it at that. I'll add a second part: TRACK EVERYTHING" - It's the only way to ensure your ACTION leads to results.

    I have started using Thesis 1.8b4 on my last couple of blogs. It is quite flexible, but it invalidates one of my plugins that I like to use. I am having to learn how to do without it. I don't know how well it will do with AdSense, but I guess I will find out.

    Anyone got any experience with this one.

      A compromise for me is Matt Carters affiliate theme. It doesn't look too bad and it converts well.

        I see where you're coming from, but honestly they all do pretty well since they all share a similar 'base' layout for the most part with optimal ad placement, but I've found the Clickmagnet and Clickbumped templates to be the most effective.

    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[5680540].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author Blarye
    I get 8-15% CTR on average using Themedy.
    I focus on a Silo structured website (top feature navigation = main categories). Each category will have 3-4 sub pages. My Internal Linking is category specific unless coming from blog post. Additionally, make sure you have an address on footer (if possible), about us, contact us and privacy policy page on your site with additional content if you can (more content the better).

    With the more recent google algo change, don't have to many ads above the fold.
    I utilize 1 medium/large content box w/ either a top small content ads under my main navigation (yeah, I know it looks like a sub navigation...) or 1 side banner ad.
    If my content on the page is over 300 words (average is 500) I'll add a medium image ad on bottom half of the fold.

    Additionally, most of my niche sites offer an alternative to just Adsense... Try also using affiliate programs (Amazon etc.), and/or CPAs (Mine pay between 15-45 per lead).

    * Make your site very clean looking, this can be done while being attractive and not taking away CTR on Ads.

    I rarely post, as I like to keep my methods secret, but i've learned alot from the community, so this is just some basics to get you started.

    Hope this helps.

    My experience told me that the CTR is niche related. For example, on my site (not the one in signature) I tried all 'high CTR' Worpdress themes, and nothing. My CTR is always the same with minor changes (0,05 %) . So ti is not the theme, all is about niche and website content.
