AdSense WordPress Theme – Ads Minded

Thursday 4 May 2006 @ 1:16 am

Finally I completed my first ever WordPress theme.
Hope you like it.

Ads Minded WordPress Theme

Alright, let’s get into the introduction of Ads Minded WordPress Theme.


Nowadays, publishing contextual advertisement (such as Google AdSense) on WordPress blog is nothing special. Hence, I had a thought of building a WordPress theme with the consideration of publishing as many advertisements on the blog and yet not compromising the content area and design of the blog.

Ads Minded WordPress Theme was finally completed today and will be officially running on this blog. The following are the features of the theme :-

  • WordPress 1.5 & 2.0+ compatible
  • XHTML compatible codes
  • W3C CSS compatible codes
  • 3 columns with an optional square advertisement (Shows on main page) on top of the sidebars
  • Search engine friendly and easy advertisement placement
  • Comes with a few useful plugins written by me and others
  • Just browse around the demo you will have a better idea. :)

Before you proceed, I would like to recommend you the easiest way to Monetize Your Site using Text Link Ads.

Text Link Ads

System Requirements

  • WordPress 1.5+ or WordPress 2.0 installed
  • Enable all plugins included in the package before using this theme.

Demo is available here.
You can use the Theme Switcher on the sidebar to switch between the wide version (1000px wide) and normal version (770px wide) in order to see the difference.

Check out the widgetized version v2.0 too!

Please do not use my themes for sites with pornographic, sexist and/or racist content of any kind.

Plugins Used

  • Submit It Plugin v1.0
  • Comment Quicktags v1.0
  • Get Recent Comments v1.0
  • Live Comment Preview v1.7
  • Optimal Title v1.0
  • Previous Posts v1.0

What can Ads Minded actually offer ?

  • 1. High CTR AdSense layout
    Ads Minded uses a high CTR AdSense layout created by me which I named it QuickSenseTM (sounds similar to quicksand).

    High CTR AdSense Layout
    QuickSenseTM : High CTR AdSense Layout

    I can’t disclose the CTR here as doing so is violating AdSense Term Of Service (TOS), but I can tell you QuickSenseTM has the highest CTR for all my advertisement placements. :)

  • 2. Search Engine Friendly
    Ads Minded was built with search engine in mind. I place the content column on the left side and the 2 sidebars on the right so that search engines read the blog content first before crawling the not-so-important items on the sidebar.
  • 3. Advertisement Sequence
    The sequence you place the advertisements is important because the first advertisement code usually carries highest paying advertisement. Hence, due to the high CTR of QuickSenseTM, I place it on top of all codes in order to get high paying advertisements.
  • 4. Better Ads Targeting
    Advertisements can be shifted around in the blog for better targeting just by shifting the advertisement codes. Each column can at least contain one type of advertisement format. They are designed to nicely fit different type of advertisements.

Some users of the theme were concerned about AdSense TOS Violation, hence I sent an email on May 7, 2006 to seek for confirmation from Google AdSense Team that this theme is 100% compatible to the TOS. On May 10, 2006, AdSense Team replied and gave a green light to Ads Minded theme. Below is the screen shot of the email :-

100% Compliant with AdSense TOS

Here is the clearer screen shot.

So, it’s now confirmed that Ads Minded is 100% Compliant with AdSense TOS.



  • 1. Unzip the downloaded file.
  • 2. Place all files into /wp-content/plugin & /wp-content/themes folder respectively according to how the files are located in the zip file. The folder struction should be like the following :-
    /wp-content/plugin/submititicons/ (folder & files inside it)
    /wp-content/plugin/submitit.php (file)
    /wp-content/plugin/submititstyle.css (file)
    /wp-content/themes/adsminded/ (folder & files inside it)
  • 3. Login to WP admin control panel and activate all 6 plugins included.
  • 4. Enable Ads Minded theme under Presentation.

That’s it. :)
Hope you like this theme.

Check out the widgetized version v2.0 too!


As suggested by some Ads Minded users, here is the donation button. By the way, the theme still remains FREE. :)

Any amount will do, I’ll take it as a bonus.
Thank you.
