    IM all the way.
    So now, there was the above-the-fold algo update recently. How do themes that have the CTR installed of them fare? :) I have seen mixed reports on here. Some say that the theme hurts their rankings. Others don't seem to be having those problems. I have EVERYTHING ready to go on my MNS's, but picking the theme is the last step in the puzzle! :rolleyes:

    Try the Socrates Theme. Very versatile theme that allows you a ton of ad positioning options.

    Heatmap theme is another decent one as well.

    I had a friend lose 3k to adsense ban as he was not using it "in the spirit" of the google adsense TOS. He also received a unnatural links email the same day. He wasnt doing anything shifty and was using CTR theme.

    I belive that they either banned him because ctr theme changes the positions each page view and color of your ads or they they banned him as he got the GWT unnatural links email.

    All i do know for sure is its a good theme for ctr.
