    I have an entertainment and celebrity news blog that is about 3 months old that is getting about 1-3k unique hits a day. I am not getting very good conversions with my current layout theme and ad placement. I am using WP currently and am willing and pushing towards redesigning the entire theme and adjusting the ads to be placed for maximum conversion.

    Anyone that would like to suggest any feedback or a good template/theme that could be used to help monetize my site better would be greatly appreciated. :)

    The site is: (hxxp = http)
    Code:
    hxxp://popcultnews.com

    Hey, if you're still around take a look at my site, I threw up that theme. I have a few ideas for ad placement on this template but have not been very successful with clicks/conversions.. Any input here?

    Only thing I could suggest would be putting niche related ads, which is VERY tough in your case.

    Maybe look into something on TV shows, movies, etc.

    Always remember, people come to the site because they wanted to read your posts.
    That means they are interested in what they are saying.

    Related everything : That's the key.


    Guessing you would want to place ads on the bottom/right side, maybe top right as well.


    Hope this helps? Haha
