    Question Good Wordpress Theme for Advertising?
    Anyone know of a really good wordpress theme for incorporating ads into? It could be a free one or it could be a premium theme for under $50.00

    I would like it to be very aesthetically pleasing, sleek and modern. I would also like the color scheme to be customizable. I guess the more features the better.

    Ok, I've done a decent amount of my own research and have found some nice places for themes that stylistically do a great job of incorporating ads.

    I like the themes from Premium WordPress Themes by TheWPNinja . They have good Magazine-style themes that works real well for ad-heavy sites.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    Wordpress has plenty of free themes that you can use for your blog. These themes can be customized to fit your preferences. You can choose from their theme archives:

    I find the StudioPress commercial 'Child Themes', on top of the StudioPress "Genesis" framework to be the most robust, flexible, customizable and professional - with a great Look and Feel and excellent forum help by staff.

    Also, their latest dozen or so themes are designed for mobile devices as well as traditional browsers. That's getting to be very important.

    A bit over $50 though.

    Hope this helps...

    Keep in mind that an ad-heavy site will find it more challenging to do well in the [Google] SERPs.

    Thesis has some great themes, but you can individually install some great widgets for ads such as FloatAd, AdRotator, etc

    No, that's not true. If you're using WordPress software, i.e., wordpress software you've downloaded from wordpress.org, on your own domain -- NOT using a free blog at Wordpress.com -- you can install all the themes you wish to install.

    And if you are planning to run a free site with wordpress.com, you cannot monetize it and use it for affiliate marketing anyway.

    Yeah - watch the number of ads on your site for a couple of reasons - first, as was mentioned if you have too many adds above the fold, Google is penalizing for that. Second, the clutter it causes doesn't generally translate to sales. You're better off writing content about what you're promoting, using a text link call to action and working in an image in the post. Think beyond the banner... most commissions in my programs are earned with basic text links and product ads from the data feed.

    Andy, spend the money and get yourself a good Wordpress template for your site. As people in this thread previously mentioned, you could run into issues on a free site and placing too many ads in the wrong place when you're going through Wordpress and if Google has any updates in the future, you want to make sure you reduce your chances of maintaining your traffic.

    Some affiliates and developers we know have worked with various themes, but the best ones that have all the advantages you're looking for (e.g. aesthetically pleasing, modern...) can be found via sites like Theme Forest where you pay for a template. It's worth it in the long run.

    Take care with WP free themes and always read the reviews and ask for users experiences. There are some great free themes out there but also a few dodgy ones as well.

    At WP.org they list the themes with some very helpful stats.

    I would check out ThemeForest, there are so many themes on there! I wouldn't limit your choice of theme to the one that looks best and has ads built in, it's very easy to slot adsense (or other ad code) in to the core theme files.

    I would go for a 'Magazine' style template and incorporate ad slots between posts, you can even easily set it to automatically ad ad blocks at certain points in every page say every 300 words or so.

    There are loads of tutorials on doing this and will take no time at all even with no coding knowledge!
