Adsense optimized WP Theme free/paid, probably paid?

    I use the Colorlib Sparkling theme and like its minimalist look.

    It is supposed to be responsive but after putting it up I lost page load speed for mobile devices. (even with the AMP plugin)

    It also does not have good ad placement.

    So I think I need to pay for a theme to get speed for different screen sizes and devices, better adsense placement, and hopefully it will even let me get rid of some plugins. (not too critical, I just paid to increase my server RAM, cpu, etc., but I would still like to reduce server load)

    Any tips or ideas would be appreciated.

    I don't want to spend a fortune on this but I don't want to buy a theme that won't be good in a year from now either.

    As you can tell, I don't know a lot about themes.

    Thanks for considering this question.

    so far all the adsense optimized themes I have looked at look pretty busy on screen. just a big jumble of widgets, and post pictures.

    I would like something that will allow for ad placement that mimics Google heatmaps placement

    Maybe there is a plugin that will do all of this. I tried the Google made plugin for inserting adsense and it only recommended to me about 40% of the ads in places the heatmap says are good. Really all I got was the above the fold upper left corner.

    With paid themes,you can modify your theme's color, features according to your need, but with free themes, you can't do this.So,either you need to buy the premium or find someone to tune it upto your likenesses.
