    Hi,

    I have a few autoblogs with decent traffic (at least for me; ~100 visitors a day), but my adsense CTR is only 1-1.5%, and I'm using the prosense theme which is supposed to have a higher CTR.

    Could you please suggest me a few other themes that have worked for you, so that I can experiment a bit? My short term goal would be reaching 6% CTR which would mean multiplying my income by more than 4 times.

    Thanks in advance,

    sackboy

    Try the HeatMap theme. I think its the downloads section. It was specifically designed for adsense and ad space.

    Don't use any of them crappy adsense themes. Personally I didn't have much luck with them. Find a nice theme to suit your blog, make it look nice. Then add two adsense blocks at the top of each post and one somewhere else! :)

    I can't vouch for CTR % but I'm currently using Thesis Framework with a few of it's skins such as Blogussion.

    Please create your own or outsource. If your theme is unique, you'll get more SET/OT.

    Then take the heatmap theme only as example and modify your theme.

    Agreed, mix it up. Put your money links at the very top left. Keep the theme simple. Make it obvious where they should click.
