    Hi,

    I'm trying out some different WP themes and would like to know what experience you've had as well. As I'm just in start up process I would like to know which themes you consider the best and the respective CTR if you're willing to share.

    I'm trying to get a general overview of which themes are considered Adsense optimised. Some of the themes I've seen as "adsense-optimised" are really clumsy and ugly as well, and I doubt they actually produce the results that are claimed.

    Thanks in advance for your replies =)

    when you are going for CTR theme, you really do not need the nice look, but you'll want ones that make visitors "click" ads more.

    Clickbump ($57), Heatmap theme pro ($70), prosense (free), CTR theme ($20 for BHW members), are the most considerable after personal custom themes.

    I heard google is slapping all the Xfactor's adsense theme,so definitely avoid those.

    I use Thesis and Socrates.:)

    Why do you believe what you heard while you have never use it? It still works well.

    I'm using Thesis - however I'm not getting a great CTR at current. This may be down to my ad placing though, rather than the theme it's self.

    The best Theme I found for Adsense that looks Good, and drive people to the ads lol. is seoAdmax .

    I got about 4.5 to 7 % ctr on it. I think this is pretty good.

    Google it, it is free. I found the creator's website, where he explains how to customize things, so if you need it, PM me and I will send it to you.

    cheers.

    Heatmap is good. There is also one called Boring Memo which I use a ton. You will need to google it as I don't remember who designed it - it is free.

    I find 2010 Weaver, a theme based off the new default WP, to be really great and customizable.

    Works very well for me.

    I also use the Thesis theme. But since I'm still in the back-linking process, I won't know how my CTR will be. But again, I think it's how and where you place your ads that will increase your CTR.

    good luck man!
