Many website owners start a website to earn money. There are money ways to do this. Selling products, services, being an affiliate or using adsense on your site. In this post we will discuss the best themes to use for adsense, free and paid ones. So which themes are great to use for Adsense sites? I have been asked questions rather or not to use one theme on different sites. In my opinion it’s better to diversify the different themes on different sites. Choose a different theme on each site you built. Many who used one theme on multiple adsense sites got penalized. It won’t be a problem if you are only building one or two big authority sites. Just find a great theme and use it on your site.
But when you want to start building a lot of small niche sites it’s better to use different themes on all your sites. The reason is that Google has employers who do manual reviews. If your sites don’t look unique or original and you receive a manual review on your sites the chance is high that all of your sites get penalized and even your adsense account banned. Off course we never know what the manual reviewers will decide to do so it’s better to have all your sites as unique as possible.This goes for the design(theme) as well for the content.
I learnt the hard way. 3 years ago i started setting up websites that have the same theme. I got good rankings but then suddenly all my rankings were gone on all of my websites. Then it hit me: I received a manual review and the guys at google decided to penalize all of my sites. So since then i decided to use different themes and build more original sites with original content that drive visitors to my site.
Always try to take your time when building a niche adsense site. Try to customize the themes and change colors through the theme editor you can find in your wordpress dashboard. Write original content for your readers that describe and answers their problem.
So no more further adue, here is a list of the free and paid wordpress themes i use for my sites.
1. Bluesense – Blue sense and Prosense are the 2 themes i used on all of my sites 3 years ago. They both have a great Click Through Rate. I have seen many sites that use these 2 themes got penalized. I don’t think you get penalized when you use each theme on one site.Always diversy your themes and all will be fine.
2. Prosense Grey – Another free theme by DoshDosh, like Bluesense. I am not sure if you still can use both these themes nowadays because they don’t receive updates anymore. I am not sure though because i haven’t used them for a while.
3. Page lines

7. Ari Theme: This is a great, minimalist free wordpress theme with a layout that is not typically seen (content in the middle with two sidebars on either side).

Clean lines, a great look, what more could you ask for in a Free WordPress Theme?
