    Quite Unfortunate, I can’t say much about admag, I recently bought it, installed it, then my earnings dropped,

    It displayed my txt ads link at will, I don’t know why, in some browsers they won’t display, while on some it will..

    Moreso, the below header ads spot dosnt work.. I may call for a refund, was forced to revert back to my former theme

  2. Pawan Sahani

  5. innjoo

    Thanks for listing the top optimized themes for ad-sense. Currently am using genesis theme, should i still change to any of the above themes.

  6. Shweta

    Did google changed the three adsense placing policy on single page?

    how many ads i can place on single page.

  7. Robert

    These themes are designed by theme designers, not Adsense earners. They may have some nice things to help but in general they don’t have a clue.

    One example is a theme that offers pre-defined ad spaces and none of them are in the sidebar.

    Other is the default position of a sidebar is the right column, not in the left as it should be. Simply because you starting to read a page from left to right when you display it in a PC.

    And so on. Nonetheless, this is a good list of themes. The only choice the small guy (like me) have is to buy one and customize.

  8. Asfak Shaikh

  13. Alpesh

    What about MagXP by MyThemeShop? It is similar to TruePixel.

    1. Prakhar Shrivastav

      Both of them belongs to the same family i.e. MythemeShop. There are the chances that they would be comprised of the similar framework or codes. But if you are looking for an Adsense optimised version of the theme then TruePixel is worth acquiring.
