One of the most successful bloggers on the Internet today also happens to be one of the youngest. Known widely as Kidblogger, Carl Ocab developed what he believes to be one of the most amazing WordPress themes too.
The Ultimate Blogging Theme caters specifically to people aiming to blog as a profession, maximizing their advertising revenue while optimizing the site for search engines.
According to Carl, the goal of the Ultimate Blogging Theme was to encompass four main criteria: a Google-friendly design, optimal advertising placements, easy navigation, and an eye-grabbing look. The layout is clean, but it is filled with many notable design features.
The navigation is laid out at the top for ease of use, there is a dedicated slot in the header for a 468×60 pixel ad banner, there are four slots for 125×125 sidebar ads, and there are ad placements set up for within and below the content as well.
You’ll also notice that RSS subscription is highlighted on the top-right, and other information can be featured above the fold in the two other boxes near the top. The design is professional in appearance and versatile in nature.
The Ultimate Blogging Theme is pre-configured with three different color schemes. The image here is with the spit fire red color scheme. The standard installation also includes quirky pink and Earth green. For additional color schemes, you can opt for charming blue (shown at the top of this article), chillin blue, and vogue red. You can switch between these schemes from within the WordPress control panel.
Similarly, you can adjust many of the options and features in this theme without any direct knowledge of coding languages. The theme comes with seven flexible widgets, the ability to embed ads without touching the raw code, and a simple interface for installing your own custom blog logo.
Carl says that one of the keys to his blogging success comes from the on-page search engine optimization that he employs. With the Ultimate Blogging Theme, similar optimization is included. For each post, you can define your target keywords and click accordingly. The clean HTML/CSS coding should aid with page loading times too, which should help with your SEO efforts.
