How to Choose Perfect Theme For Money Making Blog ~ Part 7
Even if you have Best WordPress Theme or Premium Themes it doesn’t provide guarantee of earning. By mistake if you had chosen wrong theme which is poorly coded can negatively affect your blog.
We are on Part 7 of Money Making Blog Series for Newbies ! In Part 6 we had discussed about How to Increase Security of our New WordPress Blog. Today In this part we will discuss some points to consider before buying any Premium theme for your money making blog. Before I proceed, if you want to check all the previous post, click here to visit the front page of the series.
Our main focus is to create a blog which makes money, so we are interested only on certain things which can only be present on Money Making WordPress Themes. For bloggers one of the way to generate income from their blog is by placing advertisements on some specific places on same blog. So we should select a theme which make it easy. There are many themes available which are very flexible and provide ease in moving ads from one end to another.
NB : As much as Banner and Text advertisements you will place on your blog income will be higher but there is a limit. Uneven display of banners and links ads may led you to stuffing which audience doesn’t like that what we should avoid doing.
What Perfect Money Making WordPress Theme Should Have?
A Perfect Money making WordPress theme should have following things listed below :
- Theme must designed such that it can accommodate at different spots on blog like – Top right corner, right sidebar, above post. below post, footer within post and if required in secondary sidebar as well.
- Themes should allow creating widgets and allowing to deposit them easily on the places that attracts attention.
NB : Placing ads on all available places will look like stuffing, so we should avoid these otherwise it will destroy our blog.
High Impression Spots for Banner Ads
There are some spots available on blogs where banners get high Impressions.Impression are the numbers of times any part of the page is displayed to viewer/reader. Every Visitor doesn’t scroll down to the bottom of blog.
Some of the High Impression Spots with High Visibility are :
- Top Left and Right Content Area
- Inside the Content
If any theme doesn’t allow to place ad or widget to these areas, then you should not choose these theme for your money making blog. As i said above Perfect Money making WordPress theme should be flexible and provide ease to place ads on this high visibility area.
Things which can be advertised with banners ?
- You can advertise affiliate products.
- You can sell ad space to any client.

Hello Suprabhat, this is my first visit to your blog. I came through Facebook and found this article really helpful. I am having a premium theme from templatemonster(dot)com and the theme code is theme 46570. I will be glad if you could tell me its good or not as per you. 🙂 Though your tips are damn helpful but I have already purchased it.
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to MoneyGossips, Sorry to say but whenever i had tried to have a demo of that theme there server goes down, so i can’t say whther the theme was good or bad but it was something like Magazine template i guess, which is mostly suitable for Multi-niche, News niche.

Thanks for pointing out what we should consider when choosing a blog theme. I remember the first time I was faced with the choice I was just overwhelmed by all the “pretty” designs and didn’t have a clue about the other things I should be considering.
This will be a helpful post and stop people making the same mistakes as I did!
Enjoy the rest of your week, Joy

Picking a good theme is so important. But for the most part you have mentioned about ad placement, that is the most important part to all bloggers maximizing their earning potential. If you don’t have your ads in the high click area’s they will simply convert less, it’s a proven fact. Good post man!
