Hey everyone long time. I just got back from the Philippines and I feel like I'm out of the loop. Anyways, it seems like having an authority site(s) is important. Therefore, can you have an authority site using Ctr theme? It seems like this theme is so limited that it's clearly obvious it's just for Adsense. Will Google like that? Thanks guys.

    Authorty site is great latelly, and great also for adsense

    as you may know that CTR theme have limitation, the design, etc, etc
    but we can customize this theme to fit the requirement

    I would suggest to go for clickbump theme, instead of CTR theme, as CTR theme does not look like authority style.

    Yes you can have authority sites with CTR themes, authority has to do with creating backlinks to your domain, while CTR themes only helps you convert more visitors to money...

    If you ask me, I would go for Adsense pro ultimate, I simply love the way this theme works...

        I replied you on another thread. Go for adsense pro ultimate, this has proved the best for me and many webmasters use them. Its around $69, but you can get a discount using the coupon. Just Google it...

        Good luck!

          I recommend that if you want to build a REAL authority site that you go for the Thesis theme. There's also Canvas from WooThemes and Genesis from StudioPress.

          These themes are incredibly versatile. You could even hire someone on Elance, Odesk, GetAFreelancer, or GetACoder (for cheap) that would modify a few elements to make your site unique.

            Thesis isn't "stuffy" or "overly complex." I don't know where you're getting your info on that.

            In fact it's very simple and easy to use.

            If you want to build a long-term business on the most reliable framework possible then you can't do better than Thesis.

    You don't need any kind of theme, if you embed adsense inside the content it wont matter what your template looks like. Personally when it comes to authority sites I like mine to look nice and most of the ctr themed template are ugly.

    Edit: http://www.premiumbloggertemplates.c...ate.html/demo/ You could very well make good money from a template like this, and it looks nice. win, win situation.

    Put adsense in left side bar, and again inside the content.

          I think WF also counts the messages that have already been sent, did you check the sent folder to see how many messages are in that folder?

            Yes I deleted every message I had, now I have 3 new messages but it says that I have 14 in total. Now when I try deleting a message nothing happens.

            Edit: Out of nowhere it's fix.

    CTR themes leave an SEO footprint, are against Google TOS (MFA sites) and no real authority site that is actually built to help people would use them.

    There was also a recent above the fold ads penalty making CTR themes pointless and counterproductive. The only people making money off CTR themes are the people selling them and the people who haven't lost rankings because of them... yet.

    Why does everyone always choose between CTR, Clickbump, and Thesis?

    There are tons of awesome themes out there.

      I have no idea what any of those themes are or what they look like. I think that's a good thing.
