In addition to this tutorial, if you are looking for ways on how you can create and run a revenue sharing website (i.e. sharing your revenue e.g. Google Adsense, Amazon, or affiliates earnings with writers and contributors), this tutorial has been extensively written to discuss all you need to know and implement. You can check it out here.
A brief explanation on each is discussed below:
First on the list is Sociallyviral WordPress themes. It is a special type of template made for two purposes; both for a viral website (like Buzzfeed, Viralnova, Upworthy models) and also for a content based site.
The use of this theme has proven to help publishers earn enormous amount of money from CPC (Cost per Click) because of the viral potential it offers. This is made possible by the strategic positioning of in-built social media sharing buttons. With Sociallyviral, you do not need to install any third party plugin for the sharing of your contents on Facebook, twitter, or even Google+.
Again, the designer/developer of the theme offers three strategic placements for your Adsense codes; first is below the post title, second one is the middle of the post and the third option is at the end of the post.
Each of these positions offers a high CTR (Click Through –rate) for any publisher that uses it.
Sociallyviral theme is a 3 column design, made with precision, mobile responsive features; it is light coded (making it to load very fast either on the mobile phone or even on the Laptop or PC), SEO and AdSense optimized and is extremely recommended for your use.
Originally built and coded in 2016, Mythemeshop came out with a rebranded version in 2017 that offers more flexibility, more minimal feature that allows the use of carousel images at the menu (top of the header).
From all indications, this template is my number one (1) recommended AdSense optimized WordPress themes and I encourage you to check out the demo view.
This is the latest version of the template above. Two distinguishing design factor that separates this new one from the above is;
- High CTR: CTR stands for Click through rate and it is a major factor that determines how high your earnings can be. Now, with this template, your CTR is going to be high because of increased Ad placements that is above the title ( below the header). The winning formular is the presence of the leaderboard ( 728 by 90) Ad units that is reserved for that spot. ( See the image below).
- Placement of More Ad ( for each published post at the header positioning): As can be seen from the image above ( though I briefly explained this in the high CTR above).
- Minimal features ( less features): This new template is clean and free from unnecessary clusters of buttons. The only button noticeable is the sticky social media sharing buttons that is both mobile responsive and also scrolls along with the page as you scroll up and down.
This is a new Google Adsense template coded and designed in early 2019 by Mythemeshop. Cyprus is quiet different from the normal and usual blog like style ( though, there is the blog version model of it). But one fascinating feature is the professional outlook and its crisp minimal approach to neatness and clarity of what is expected of a high retina ready made template.
You may not be convinced yet of the fantastic features it present just by looking at the FrontPage ( homepage), but wait a minute. Just view the demo and take a peep at the post layout and also the page layout. The post layout offers a convenient way to clearly insert your adsense code just below the title and or after some few lines of paragraph.
This is made possible by going to the Mythemshop setting option ( and activating the monetization box).
Dividend is a multipurpose template built in five ( 5) different versions to accommodate your creativity and variety forms of monetization.
The default template as seen above presents a FrontPage that gives attention to organization of post contents and your ability to place a particular post as your featured post on the large FrontPage set piece. for you to have a feel of what the theme offers, I recommend you check out the various demos and check out each demo posts. However, from my personal recommendation, I will advise you go for the minimal style design as shown below.
This template is called Ad-sense technology, this does not mean it is only for a technology focused blog. This WordPress theme is a complete versatile blogging theme extremely recommended for a content farm or article focused blog.
The main area of concentration is at the right hand corner of the header where the big large leaderboard Ad size unit is located. This is another mobile responsive theme from Mythemeshop and it is highly recommended.
The image above is the post /page area. You will be observe the placement of the Ad units, one at the header ( which remains static on all post pages) and also the one below the title.
if you want to run a viral website, this is one sure template ( apart from the main one earlier listed above, i.e. Sociallyviral); This template is actually better because of the minimal design and simple features is has. This allows it to load very fast on both mobile phones, PC and laptops.
This Ad-sense WordPress theme is one of the best Adsense ready WordPress themes available in the market right now; the presence of Ad units below the blog/website title with accompanying big rectangular Ad unit towards the right hand side of the blog makes it so unique. This placement gives it maximum exposure exposure with mobile viewing audiences.
If you run sport bog or website or you are about to launch one, this template is recommended for your use. It is perfectly created for this kind of niche with emphasis on helping the owner and publisher get the best out of Google Adsense without necessarily worrying about coding.
This is a 2 layout design with presence of big featured image covering the entire width of the space above the title. It is slick, image centric and at the same high retina ready.
However, the major importance and worthy of mention is the ability for advertisers to contact you; you have a leverage of using a background image ( covering the entire website) as a means of advertisement which links out to the source website/destination of the advertisement .
To get a clear picture of my explanation, I urge you to check out the demo.
From the image above, I have highlighted the placement of the Ad units; these locations are strategic to making higher earnings with your monetization programs.
This is another Mythemeshop template and it is created not only for Google Adsense Ads, but also for native ads, including direct advertisers codes/banners.
It offers a much winning formula if you are running a news website ( you can read here if want to start one)
This is a pure blog design offering a white background, with a mobile responsive features that is slick and fast loading.
Originally created for baby bloggers and feminine niches, however, it goes very well for use on any blogging niche, either as an affiliate or PPC based blog.
The FrontPage offers a much direct display of your blog posts in grid form ( in 3 rows), thereby giving you leverage to publish and display as many post you want on the FrontPage. Generaly, this baby blog Adsense template is a two layout design that features a display advert at the very top of the header positioning.
A simple view of the demo explains it all.
My Tech Blog
Three distinct features set this themes apart;
- First is the review and rating features that comes pre-packed in the template. This feature alone helps give credibility to any published post and indirectly boosts your CTR ( Click Through rate) from the search engines because visitors tends to click and visit an article having ratings been shown on the Google search pages.
- Secondly, it is minimal in style and layout
- Thirdly, there are only two Adsense units ( that came as default); one at the header and another one at the sidebar. This does not mean they are the only ones you can use. You can also add more Ad units directly from the monetization box from the settings option.
It is a practical blog built for Google adsense publishers, check out the demo.
Myblog is a high minimalist website template ( by being minimal, it means it is clean, crystal clear and free of distractions). My point of interest is in the peculiar design which made it unique compared to the normal or usual blog template design.
MyBlog is also from the guys at Mythemeshop and the presence of Carousel at the top makes it so unique. In essence, this template is equally good to use as a website ( having blog) or as a standalone blog design.
However, the template has about 5 different versions created using the framework. This means if you purchase this template, you are given five different already made designs you can chose from.
A proper understanding of what I am trying to explain can easily be seen in the demo samples below.
Authority tech WordPress theme is one of the six ( 6) different versions you get from the original Authority theme ( shown below) when you make the purchase.
This template is Google Adsense optimized and ready to help you start making higher earnings. It is primarily made for bloggers who simply want to run an article based style of blogging and wants to monetize with a PPC marketing model.
It is a high retina ready made template, built from scratch at Mythemeshop; it is a two (2) layer structure design with popular/recent post features at the sidedar. This is an otherwise feature that is only present with the use of plugin, but with this template, it is already inbuilt.
The main spot for Ad unit monetization is at the header, centrally positioned ( as seen in the red arrow on the image above) for quick sight seeing and high CTR. A peek at the demo will give more clarity.
This is the main Authority parent theme as earlier explained above. However, this particular theme ( this particular one) does not have the Ad units at the header, but it is present on the sidebar. For you to add Ad units, you will need to go the theme settings on your dashboard and activate it.m
It is very simple to do, trust me.
The explicit colour combination, the two layout design structure ( which in unconventional because the sidebar is at the left instead of the right) and the positioning of the Ad units makes the template to be quite different from the rest.
Authority travel is not only meant for travel bloggers ( you can read this tutorial if you want to be a travel blogger), but for blogging generally. It offers a smart and fast loading mobile responsive ability even on a very low bandwidth. It is coded with high sense of professionalism and it is search engine optimized ready for your use.
A first glance at this template will tell you that it is not Adsense ready; it may not look ready but I can tell you that is highly optimized to give you the desired result.
However, because it is a WordPress themes from Mythemeshop, all you have to do is to go the theme option settings that is present in your dashboard and enable the Ad units to show:
- At the header
- Below Title post
- And also, at the end of each published post
These features are present and available for all Mythemeshop products. however, One major reason why I included it in this list is because of the bold and clarity if offers to readers. The text are bold and it covers nearly the entire width of the blog design.
I, for one loves the design concept as it is even highly mobile responsive when you view it on a mobile device ( e.g. your smartphone).
I advise you check out the demo.
Nobody knows about the money making opportunities and potentials of viral websites until Viralnoval.com came up. As at that time, Viralnoval.com was making USD100, 000 per week and it was made possible with the use of just a theme that cost USD45.
The design of TruePixel WordPress theme gave the website the viral sensation that makes it possible to easily share the posts/contents on social media (Facebook, twitter), thereby sending thousands and even millions of traffic to the website.
Though, this template is AdSense ready, it is not as versatile and powerful like the Sociallyviral WordPress themes mentioned above.
As at the moment, the website Viralnoval.com has been sold and the design has been redesigned, but at the beginning, TruePixel template gave them the much needed financial breakthrough with Google AdSense.
The template is a two column design, minimal design, strategic positioning of the Facebook, Google+ and twitter sharing buttons. In addition, it is built with SEO standard best practices and it is equally mobile responsive.
Recognized as one of the most successful WordPress themes on the themeforest marketplace, Newspaper is an AdSense ready theme, built not just for a news focused website but generally for any publisher that focuses on making money with Google AdSense.
It is a perfect template design for a content farm and any other blog/website that uses the CPC (Cost Per Click) model of making /earning money.

Even with much attention to images and glossy outlook, Newspaper 8 is extremely light coded, minimal in shape, structure and design.
The original default design of the Newspaper8 template is for a newspaper website; however, there are lots of demos included in the package, including magazine outlay etc.

Newspaper From Mythemeshop
This Newspaper from Mythemeshop remains the newest sensation from the guys at Mythemeshop in 2018. It is a multi-purpose theme with six different versions that can be chosen and used.
I use this template to recently re-design my South Africa’s news based website and my CTR improved by over 17% since I got it implemented.
Notable features of these WP themes include:
- One single package gives you access to six different demos from which you can easily switch your design concept ( e.g. magazine, technology, sport outlook e.t.c)
- When you switch from one design to another, your contents and data remains unchanged.

This is a modified version of the above, built for food bloggers; however, the use is for a more general purpose blogging.
Because it is originally built for a newspaper website, it offers a robust ground for adequate and easy sharing of the posts on social media websites. The theme comes prebuilt with nearly all known social media websites, so, there is no need to have a third party plugin for the social networks.
This helps makes the template to be lightweight, loads incredibly fast and its appearance is more appealing to the overall global audience.
Talking of SEO, the template is configured highly to be SEO compliant,, therefore, the problem of SEO ( basic) for a newbie is no longer there.
TruePixel Social is a modified version of the original Truepixel theme earlier explained. This template was actually the one that brought about the news of profitability in running a viral website.
However, TruePixel Social is built to be social in all forms of respect. If you are running a blog and you do not want to be dependent on Google or other search engines as your dominant source of traffic, then this template is for you.
it is built to help you get the best of social media referral traffic. I highly recommend that you should give it a shot.
This is the first newspaper theme developed by Mythemeshop. I personally made use of this template before I switched over to the latest newspaper design earlier mentioned above.
This WordPress theme signifies the definition of an actual online newspaper website design because it contains essential elements and features required.
For example, it contains the live, real time display of trending news/posts at the header ( just below the menu features).
The concentration of essential social media sharing buttons towards the right hand side of the template brings about neatness and easy access to share any post being read by a visitor.
At the same time, links to the social media accounts of the website is also displayed at the right hand side of the sidebar and this makes it possible for any visitor to either like your page, follow you on twitter or even become your circle on Google+.
All these features are already inbuilt, installed and configured and the most interesting aspect of it all is that they are coded lightly and as such, it will not add additional load on your template design.
MovieZone is an entertainment WordPress themes, originally modified from Newsonline template. The design structure place into emphasis the need to make money from a PPC program for the publisher or website owner.
I have highlighted the positioning of the Ad units at the header ( towards the right hand side); the position is a prime location, fitting excellently for both a mobile responsive viewing and for a PC/laptop device.
MovieZone takes into account a fast loading coding programming, it is retina ready and not cumbersome in terms of unnecessary coding programs that makes a template to be heavy.
As a matter of fact, the designer ( Mythemeshop) has really made everything so easy and simple for you because you are not going to bother yourself installing a third party plugin for social media sharing experience. In addition, you do not need to either install a plugin for email/lead collection i.e. an email subscription box. it is already inbuilt as seen from the image/demo above.
With a simple design and well laid out attention to minimal outlook, this template is one sure themes for anyone interested in a high CTR Google adsense earnings.
It is a two layout structure, with an Arial font, solid SEO package and an excellent fast loading speed. For me, I will go for this template because it has been streamlined to just give me the monetization experience I am looking for.

Going to almost 5 years of existence since it was first built; the template has evolved to the present magazine pro with cutting edge technology that has made it become the prime choice among bloggers and most notably Google AdSense publishers.
During the initial days of madailygist.ng, I made use of the Magazine pro themes to design the site and due to the design concept, the overall CTR was high and the publisher was making approximately USD95-165 per day.
This theme is a Genesis child themes and the high converting ratio is not surprising because all themes from this developer are built with solid proof SEO ( search engine optimization) and absolute attention was given to a blazing fast experience and mobile responsive nature ( when viewed on any mobile device, palm tops etc.).
