    What is the best theme for a noob internet marketer. One where I can put adsense and cpa offers on and they will show up on every page the same. I think this is called CSS.
    This type of thing.

    Maybe a banner in the right column, navigation on left, some adsense above my posts, and possibly some ads worked in between comments.

    It doesnt have to be all of these. Just something easy to set up.

    If it helps, I am used to using XSite Pro to make websites. Perhaps that will help you know make a recommendation.

    I appreciate your time, so Thanks

    Flexibility 2 theme is pretty easy to use and add advertisements to.

    Also, there are a number of plugins that can help with posting both your adsense and adverts, so I wouldn't get too caught up in the actual theme. Just pick something simple to make viewing easier on your visitors.

    Flex 2 seems to be a favorite. It is also a theme I have downloaded for free. I looked all over the site and couldn't find any tutorials. Anyone know of any.

    Thanks again BHW members.

    I'd pick a simple free theme and find plugins to post your adsense and manage your SEO, etc.

    If you're a total n00b and think CSS is how you place ads, I advise going for the simplest theme you can find. Anything else might prove overwhelming and hinder success.
