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.

How to Choose Theme for Blog

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 :

  1. 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.
  2. 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 :

  • Header
  • Sidebar
  • Top Left and Right Content Area
  • Inside the Content

Perfect Blog Layout

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.
  • You can advertise your own products as well.

How to Find the Perfect Theme

  • There are many bloggers who are already using these kind of theme you can ask your blogger friend as well.
  • View demo of theme before purchasing.
  • You can ask authors.
  • Reading theme specification will surely help you a lot.

What I Recommend ?

There are so many themes and frameworks there, but i will recommend only those which i use personally.

>>-But Why I am recommending Genesis Framework ?

  • I am using Genesis framework so i know it is working best for me.
  • Genesis supports HTML5 and Schema.org which make your blog fast, flexible and secure.
  • Genesis themes are highly mobile responsive and supportive.
  • You can place ad anywhere you want on the genesis theme.

    Hi Suprabhat,

    You have listed some great points here. There are many things which matter a lot while choosing theme for your blog.

    It should be responsive, there should be many ad space so that you can make money by placing ads.

    In my opinion Genesis and Thesis have their perfect service. And if know how to design? then go for Thesis.

    Great articles indeed.

    Have a good day.:)

    Hi Suprabhat,

    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

      Hey Satish,

      Try changing your Ads dimensions also try changing there places it, finding the best ad size and location can only be done by testing them for a particular time period over there.

      Let me know if you need any more help.
