Free Adsense Themes:
This is one of the most widely used free adsense ready themes that makes good use of the real estate on your blog by cranking it up with adsense ads. It is a 3 column theme that comes with a left and right sidebar which can be used to put up ads as well as other widgets to lower your bounce rate.
A fast loading and free theme that is not only highly customizable but is also built to support maximum ads. The theme is designed in such a way that it attracts the visitors’ attention to your adsense ads, while not being intrusive to the user. The theme also comes with a search engine optimized structure with clean codes and well validated codes. Though the design is pretty bland, the other handy features in the theme make up for it.
Bluesense is also a free adsense theme that is built for just one purpose: increasing your CTR. However I would only recommend you to use it on static, information type websites (niche websites) since the theme makes for pretty boring display and can put off the visitors on your authority blog. Talking about the pros, the USP of this theme is its ultra fast loading type and SEO optimized structure.
A decent looking free theme that pretty much relies on the sidebar for displaying most of the adsense ads. Also supports 2 column sidebar that can be used to display not only ads from adsense, but also from other CPM networks, thereby increasing your earnings. One of the other benefits of this theme is that the ads aren’t too obtrusive, yet deliver decent CTR’s. Best for tech blogs since you can also use the sleek sidebar for affiliate banners apart from adsense.
A simple and effective 2 column theme that comes with a fixed width layout. Unlike other themes, this one has a left sidebar since visitors are more likely to click on ads which are on the left side of the screen. There is also an option to display adsense ads between the header and the title to further improve your CTR.
