Ad-Ready WordPress Themes

WordPress bloggers have a vast selection of themes to choose from, however, not all of them cater to ad placement. In this post, I have put together a list of resources of ad-ready themes that you may wish to use.


blogging for money - clouds – Offers several themes with 125×125 placements, such as the above Clouds Rounds, as well as at least one with a 250×250 slot.


blogging for money - blix krieg

BlixKrieg – The extremely versatile Blix theme got abandoned as a project ages ago, but it then resurfaced as BlixKrieg with built-in placements for Google AdSense units. Even though this theme is aging, new authors do try to keep it up to date.


blogging for money - blog oh blog – Offers several free themes, with AdsPress being the most ad friendly of them with some fairly subtle Google AdSense placements.


blogging for money - daily blog tips

DailyBlogTips – The popular blog about all-things-blogging has started offering free monthly WordPress themes, all of them with an eye to advertising. There is a mixture of choices with 125X125 ad blocks and those supporting Google AdSense.


blogging for money - elegantwpthemes – ElegantWPThemes offers several free themes with 125×125 spots, the above pictured one is named Soloss.


blogging for money - jauhari – offers numerous themes, a few with Google AdSense placements, and two with 125×125 spots. This one pictured, My April Reloaded, also features a 729×90 banner spot that can be used for images or as an ad spot.

Monetizing The Web
