Do you think that this theme is making high CTR for your adsense site? I bought this theme for 87 USD, so far my earning is less than 10 USD, what do you think about this theme?

There are many option in CTR theme can I know which layout you all use to get the highest CTR?



Is this theme really making money? What ads link color should I put? Should I put a navigation bar above the fold?

    2 Niche Websites with CTR Theme, and It's only 10:24 AM. I'm pulling about 15 - 16% CTR on each, with a CPC of $0.50 or so on each. I hate how you never know what a keyword will actually pay until you use it haha.
    Anyways, make sure you set all ads, except for the pushdown ads, and you should be golden. Maybe your traffic isn't targeted? PM Me And I can probably help.

        After reading all the above posts, i would like to give my own opinion:

        1. Achieving a 15% CTR is doable. But you have to give your visitors the impression that the site that they are reading is trying to give them something and not just steal their clicks with some crappy content or one or two images here and there and nothing more.

        2. I have seen that expanding the font size from 13px to 14px actually raised my ctr and i feel that happened because this font is closely similar with the font of the ads. Otherwise, my content seems too small comparing to big fonts of the ads.

        3. Do not overload your site with ads! Use 2 ads units for the beginning, test them and after the testing you can add one more.

        4. One of my favorite hacks for ctr theme is that i can put the 728x15 ads to the center and not starting from the left to the right. And you are not limited to use only the 728x15 but you can use the 728x90 as well!

        Just my 2 cents....

      Agree, I don't get how people get so high CTR, I'm using this theme for quite long. The highest CTR is 5%.

        I usually don't messed out with the theme background, my font but you can change the site colors if you want to make your sites unique. but I normally don’t change the color scheme. The ad sizes I add are 160--600, 336--280, and 728--15.

        I found this layout convert the best for me but you can do split testing to find out which one convert best for you and also do not use “pushdown images” because after Googles Panda Update, they made it clear that they like to see content above the fold. Therefore, i like to have a couple ads at the top of my page with content still showing up above the fold

    I respect everyones work, so also the owner and the inventor of the CTR theme. But, doesn't matter which theme I put (and believe me, I tried everything: CTR theme, Prosense, Heatmap etc.) I never gain a CTR higher than 3 %. So I think this so called "high CTR" themes are b...sh.t . Never any of those themes worked for me.

      Theme alone does not make a high CTR. Let me repeat that again. Theme alone does not produce high CTRs. There are many elements in place that come together to produce your CTR such as this Ad Placement (you control), Ad Unit Size (you control), Ad Text Font and Color (you control), Actual Ad content / Text and Images (You do NOT control), Ad relevance to site traffic (you do not directly control but you can manipulate this in your favor to some extent), Page color / ad color relationship (you control), Site Theme (you control), Site Layout / Look and Feel (you control), Site Link Color (you control) and Intent of Site Traffic (you do not directly control but you can do your best to choose the right kind of keywords)

        Yes I am aware of that, since I am in adsense for over 10 years. Ads need to blend, and best place for ads on the site is a shape of a letter E. Thats are the spots tend to get most attention from visitors. I know all that, and believe me that I've read and apply everything you can found on the web regarding adsense, including those "high ctr" themes, that are not show any improvement for me.

      Inventor of CTR Theme!? Since you are the inventor any tips on this theme that will boost my CTR like what kind of layout. Big, medium, small adsense ads font.

      Verdana or arial adsense ads font.

    CTR theme is one of the junk that i will recommend not to use. It have may features like ad rotation or best ads placements but due to it your adsense account can be vulnerable for ban.

    You cant get much result for a single site tough CTR will be great but CPC will eventually fall down due to high CTR so earning wont sky rocket. Beside this it makes the site look awful due to such big ads above the fold.

    I am getting the same CTR with thesis. Customized thesis beats everything when it comes to on page factors and ad placements and conversions.

      Ad rotation works? Ad rotation I doubt it works too, but many pros mentioned that it creates ad blindness for the user and cause them to click on the ads.

      I have tested this theme for a long time, this theme looks ugly for a purpose, to deter non-targeted visitors and more targeted visitors that are interested in your content. Therefore, you may see a low number of visitors to your website.

      Thesis? Thesis theme is also used by jaybox who has 3~20% CTR. Are you getting the same CTR as thesis? CTR theme or thesis theme is better for CTR??

        Thesis may not have that much CTR but you can optimize ad placement using click heatmap provided by google. The best thing is that it gives my site a very professional look so visitor came and read the content, most of times multiple pages which helps in keeping the Bounce rate low and this also help in ad CTR.

          Why thesis may not have much CTR? Jaybox claimed that he used thesis to generate 3~20% CTR consistently. Heatmap is useful hence CTR theme used the layout of heatmap and rotate them.

      What! I bought CTR theme, CTR theme is known to be the best CTR theme ever for adsense. CPC will fall due to high CTR? What do you mean by this?

    Of course it is a myth, I personally doubt that anyone can get CTR higher than 10 %, doesn't matter what the theme is.
    It is a letter E. Avoid small adense units, use 336x280 or 300x250, and make sure it is set image AND text ads. In this way you make sure that adsense unit always show best paying ads. Next, you can put any kind of font on adsense text ads if that font is the same as your website font. I tend to use Verdana. Next, set ad title in the same color as link color of your website, and set ad text color slightly darker than text color on your website. Url color of the adsense unit set to ffffff, or 0000ff .Set the font size of adsense unit slightly bigger thn text size on your website.
    Wait a week and see if there is any improvements.

      My CTR Is Around 15%..

      And Warock, I'm making around $150 / Day with Two Niche sites, just put up quality content, and drive more traffic. Even with a 1% CTR if you have a lot of Visitors, you'll be making money.

        Good for you, let me know the statistic from a three month, wait and you'll see.

        Btw. if you have a little content on your page, and obvious way to get clicked on something is an adsense ad, you'll get banned very soon , since it is a TOS violation in Googles eyes.

    How about you do some testing?

    Trust me when I say no two sites/traffic are the same, the only way you'll ever know what works is from doing your own test on your own sites & keeping track of what works for you. Changing a theme/layout once or twice a week isn't testing (edit: unless you have massive traffic to test).

    Is that your site? I have CTR theme too, but just recently. I've certainly had a lot more views in a few days, but still waiting for the clicks.

    I'm pretty confident with time the Clicks will come. I've also seen a dip in the Bounce rate and improvement with other analytic metrics. Really I'd need a few weeks to have a more accurate assessment.

    What I want to know is how effective the built in SEO features are. I've read conflicting comments. It would seem like using the simple built in SEO would make sense, or else you really defeat the purpose of the themes strength, which is speed, simplicity and Clicks through layout rotation. I'm going to try without All in One SEO and WP plugins initially.
