    Guys i've applied CTR Theme to one of my sites and
    I am bit skeptical abt it as when i see my site as
    somewhere i feel that it might award me a ban later coz it uses 2 326x280pixel
    pics near link ads.

    So what do you think ,
    Should i continue with CTR Theme or change it ?

    You won't get banned for THAT.

    If you have high CTR you also won't get banned, only get banned for invalid clicks several times, porn, nudity, sexy content, hide your ads even partial...

    But I suggest to don't display two big boxes because ads will be less target to your niche and CPC lower.

    if you use CTR theme of wordpress...so configure the ads to display randomly
    not all the time 2 big ads each one near to the other...
    you can sometimes disable them and let only the Link Unit and that tall ads in the left/right.
    Try to diversify ads placments...

    I use CTR Theme since few months, and no problems with AdSense.
    As said by Termseo, use the random function to display ads.

    There was a good thread about CTR Theme but it was deleted, too bad.

    Placing ads near to pictures is not advisable. You could get banned for that because it's very misleading.

    With which themes / settings do you get 10%? I never get over 5% and my content is great!

    I agree with the posters above. While the CTR theme won't get you banned, it isn't the best choice because the bounce rate is astronomical and it ranks poorly.
