So you are looking for the best AdSense theme or template for blogger or WordPress, even Drupal or Joomla, such that can help boost your click-through rate, thereby increasing your earnings?

Well, there are quite a number of AdSense optimized and AdSense ready templates and themes out there, well-coded, that can actually help boost your click-through rate, thereby increasing your chances of earning higher through Google AdSense. Some are free and some are premium.

But, see this:

Did you know that the type of theme or template you use can badly influence your Google AdSense earnings, even if they are well-coded, super speed themes that are presumably well-optimized for AdSense? The same is true for any other display networks.

You just set up a lovely blog with a world class theme from the best of designers out there. The server response is very high too since you have hosted the blog with one of those top-notch hosting companies out there. To put an icing on the cake, you have been approved to display Google AdSense banners on the same blog and your joy is even on the overflowing side.

After all said and done, you pumped in enough traffic expecting high click-through rate but was disappointed in the end. Do you want to know why that happened? Before you think about any other factors, you need to see the look of your blog first.

In case you don’t know about the above menace, I will love to show you the three types of themes or templates that have the potential to kill your AdSense earning, how and why they will do that.

Are you eager to know? Then follow me.

Wait, see this: I laugh when some newbie bloggers chorus Google AdSense alternative. Is there really an alternative for Google AdSense? I bet there is.

It’s more acceptable to say Google AdSense’s kids. Smiles.

Let’s continue.

You and I know it’s no more news that you have to consider the type of theme or template you use when creating a Blog or Website, whether for personal or business purposes.

In case you don’t know, I will be glad to tell you that some companies set up the theme or template business just for the money, without considering how you feel as an end user. Worst still, they join the unseen forces to spoil your online business in the long run. Lol.

Do you think that sounds harsh? No. See, no matter how great a theme or template in the market out there is, it might not really be great to be used for Google AdSense.

While you complain of low CTR (Click-through rate), it might not really be the work of a witch from your village. Check your theme to know if you are missing the big deal.

If you think that having a bad theme or template might be one of those unimportant talks in blogging, your low click-through rate will soon make you understand; and that will happen when your visitors start to complain about how poorly designed your website is.

I just pray you have such a loyal reader that will be opened enough to tell you that.

Get it! You blog is not the only authority in your niche, and so you need to buckle up to get in the competition. If you lag behind, you watch yourself chorus “My business sucks” in the end.


Enough of talks! Stop choosing a bad theme or template.

So, here are three types of themes/templates you must not consider when building a blog for AdSense or other displaying networks.

  1. Non-responsive Themes or Template

This is the number one killer.

Google really hates your site when you don’t have a responsive theme or template. In fact, your search engine results will live to tell the sad story. If you have a non-responsive site, I hate your site as much as Google does. Using a responsive AdSense code wouldn’t help here since the theme itself is not responsive.

If indeed you are a serious blogger, the last theme or template you want to consider using is a non-responsive one.

  1. Badly-Coded Themes

Badly-coded themes can make a mess of your AdSense earnings. Get it once, some themes are too heavy that site visitors would want to run!

For every theme or template you use, checking the Google Page Speed insight alone is enough to tell that your theme sucks or not!

Wait, do you use nulled themes? If yes, did you know it could really hurt your site?

Here is how:

Some malicious codes can be hidden in the theme and because you are getting it free, you think it’s really free. In the end, you begin to see its funny impacts on your blog or website.

  1. Themes with too much of padding and margin

A professional theme or template should have many settings. You should be able to adjust some varieties of things from the settings section.

And when you are setting up a blog, you need to consider the margin and padding you need to use. That’s why Google recommends you use the responsive AdSense code.

You sure don’t want to put up a banner on your blog or website that half of it is cut-off by your poorly-designed theme or template.

Seeing the picture below alone is enough to get a grasp of the ordeal that a theme or a template can do to your website or blog.

Whenever you need to choose a theme or template for your blog or website, make sure the paddings are margins can either be readjusted through their settings or are not too much that can make a mess of your AdSense banner.

See the example below for the best of look for a theme or template that’s really designed for AdSense earnings.

The picture above is a screenshot from this website.

Note this:
A great theme or template for AdSense Earning should have margins and paddings that are reasonable enough. The theme on this website is an example of one. Take note as you read this blog post. You can scroll up and down to see what I am talking about.

So, is it well designed, very responsive and yet has the most desirable padding and margin? That’s a good theme or template that can help boost your AdSense earnings in no time.
