The “Ultimate Blogging Theme” that Makes Money

Carl “Kidblogger” Ocab recently sent me an email wanting me to take a look at his new “Ultimate Blogging Theme” for WordPress. He sent me over a limited license theme to try it out and see if I like. I love working on mini blog sites, and am always looking for the best new wordpress themes to work with. After looking everything over, I spent a couple hours working on a new blog and ended up really liking the usability and look of the site. I was actually so satisfied with the theme, I went ahead and purchased the unlimited $97 version, which also gives you access to more color schemes and options.

You can visit the Ultimate Blogging Theme web site here, or you can just read below for a quick over. I know everyone loves “long sales pages” , so I will just highlight a few of the top features available through the theme.

Limited vs. Unlimited Ultimate Blog Theme
– The limited version comes with three different colors schemes, and is only available for use on one domain. The unlimited version is an unlimited license and also has six different colors to choose from. If you purchase the unlimited version, you can also remove the copyright/”made by” tag on the bottom of your wordpress them.

Great Navigation and Ad Placement
The biggest problem I have when setting up a new blog or mini site, is having to mess with the header and side menus to try and get the ad placement I want. Carl spent a lot of time finding where the best placements are for advertisements, and how to get people to click through your blog and subscribe to your rss feed. Everything is customizable and that makes my job that much easier.

Upload & Ready to Go
– This is a very advanced them is ready to go, right out of the box. The only you need to do is upload the files, then activate a few plugins and start customizing your blog.

Walkthrough Videos & Tips
– When I first started playing around with the new theme, I was a bit confused on how to setup a couple areas of the blog. Fortunately, Carl already has that covered and he created a super easy walkthrough video that shows the whole install/customization process. In addition to the walkthrough process, as a license owner, you also have access to a 20 minute video featuring “hardcore tips and advice” from Carl.

Yes, I’m using the Ultimate Blogging Theme!
This isn’t a paid review from Carl, but as I mentioned… he did give me a free limited version to play around with.  After seeing what it could do, I went ahead and purchased the full version for unlimited use and for more customization. I’ve already created a few new blogs with the theme and very happy with how they ended up looking. I will do a follow up post next week to show you how they came out.

Carl also provided me with ONLY SIX discount coupons for my blog readers. If you would like to purchase the Ultimate Blogging Theme, you can save an instant $20 off the $97 retail price. This coupon code only applies for the full unlimited license version. Use coupon code: ZACJOHNSON

Tim Jones says

I was tempted by this theme last week. Now that you say it's easy to use and customize, I'm even more tempted… 🙂

    Carl Ocab says

    Hey Tim! Glad to see ya here… and glad to see you ALREADY on my recent orders page 😉

Steven-Sanders says

Looks alot like a mix between John Chow's Old Version and Problogger's current theme. Minus the magazine homepage.

Very cool, and would almost prefer it to mine, except for looking like someone else.

browie says

It is a nice theme. I need to make some cash in order to start buying themes that's why i use the NOT SO Unique Blog freebie. =

BlogAngry says

It does look like an easy theme to use, I will give it a try

Mike Huang says

Lol, after this, he should've just gave you a FREE version to begin with 😀


    Carl Ocab says

    Hmmm nah, don't want to saturate the theme so I'd rather sell it.

Cheap Hotels in Orla says

That theme is great, I've got a new blog that I'm considering and I will have to give that a whirl.

Sohail says

Hmm nice theme there but am happy with mine for the time. Looks great and simple by the way

Nicole Price says

Looks good and I am really tempted….

BusinessX says

I have this bookmarked for when I have the $$$ for a SEO optimized theme. Anxious try it, I like the out of the box features.

Haruyoshi says

I love this theme, standard framework for a blog like urs, 🙂

Desk Coder says

I have been learning towards the new and old revolution themes, but this one looks good too. I might have to get them all.

Jeremy says

I can't stomach purchasing anything that is on a 50 mile long sales page after getting into this game. It makes me ill. Maybe it's the fact that me buying it gets both the affiliate and the product maker big bucks. Cheers.

SMM Guru says

Its an all-right theme… I still prefer my custom layout any day.

    Zac Johnson says

    No doubt… custom themes are always best… but also usually a lot more than $77.

      TYCP Entertainment M says

      Not unless you make it yourself!

game-girl says

Wow, sounds pretty incredible. You couldn’t come up with even one problem with it? I like the different color variations, very unique.

Simon says

I really like it, but just before it got released I had a custom theme on the way, so I'm sticking with that

Melvin says

No doubt its a great theme. Knowing Carl, Im sure spending less than $100 for this theme is well worth it… 🙂

Scot says

Don't think this is going to work out for me since a lot of my demographic is still @ 1024×768 and this is what it looks like:

ZK@Internet Marketin says

I wonder how many themes you sold from your site after this review…

Bryan Lock says

Wow, it's really a nice template! Well done!

Goran Web Design says


Make money says

looks like an awesome theme..

But i would not pay for "# Attribution link should be kept intact"

teraOm says

Not so professional. For $99 i expect more. May be there are additional features which i am not able to visualize

    nick says

    Def. agreed. LOL @ anyone who actually buys this for the price listed. Why not just go hire someone to design you a unique theme for less?

artist says

i am looking for good magazine theme. any one having link?

Web Designing says

Really good theme. but is this optimized to display adsense ads. I think no. We should have link units, three text or image ads to increase the revenue. Also it should be designed according to the adsense policy.

Syte Black says

Amazing theme

Blogger Templates says

This theme looks nice. I wish it's free lol

Minnesota Attorney says

I like that you can upload this theme and it is ready to go. Many cool themes look great until you try to install them; then the challenges start, with tricky installation and customization procedures to get them to work as advertised.

Compare Themes says

Hey guys, this is a great theme. I can help with customization if needed!


Life Insurance Sales says

This is an amazing theme! Heading over to purchase now.

Karl Hadwen says

The theme does look great and it's unique in it's own way.

Greg says

Nice magazine theme at –>

Matt Helphrey says

It does look good and very customizable which I would love. Ill keep the Ultimate Blogging theme in mind.

letras de says

The Post Ultimate Blogging Theme is very good…

Caleb says

Please let us know from your personal clickthrus if this theme indeed has the best ad placements…I hate going through all the header,sidebar changes as well.

Silvia says

I think highly of the theme. It might be a good attraction to the post.

internet Marketing says


I have to agree. They do look like John and the problogger dude had a baby theme. Im not a fan of either, but I do like the theme. I can't see the benefit of changing from the one I have now so Ill pass on this one.

Tom says

This is exactly what I have been looking for. I will be looking into it further later today. Great site and great offer.

Dean Saliba says

Very nice theme, I might check these guys out next time I'm looking for a new theme.

Nicholas Chase says

Really nice. I'm almost sorry, that I went with wooThemes a while back.

Funny Crap says

While it is a very nice looking theme. I think I'd rather stick with making my own custom themes. I'm never really a big fan of purchasing themes.

Bloggers School says

Ya this will be nice on the new Blog we moved to word press.I will be getting this theme.

Rahul Jadhav says

Wow the theme looks great. Carl Ocab is an amazing kid. He is very young yet he has achieved so much

jobucks says

it’s a great theme….

Keg of Wisdom says

DAMN! Good theme!

Matty Byloos says

If only I weren't so married to Cutline… You guys have an opinion on 2 versus 3 column themes?

Hip Hop Videos says

The theme looks pretty sweet, and I was about to say, it looks like your blog is using the theme… and then I read that you are in fact using it lol. I'm not sure I'm gonna make the jump due to the price tag, but I think I might try to see how I can modify my layout slightly to incorporate some of the design. I'm glad its working out for you though!

Matty Byloos says

Yeah — has this guy thought about a middle-road? Maybe around the $40 or $50 price point with some average functionality?

munten says

I really love this theme!!!! Great job!

Aditya says

Wow this theme is seriously ultimate. I like the feature where u can choose your three-four colour of your theme. Nice release thank u very much.

Franck Silvestre says

This kid is really awesome and I dig his blog post a lot. Thanks for the heads up and will definitely check this theme.



beleza says

I found this theme great for wordpress!Easily, made and optimized for adsense. I m start to working in blog sites, and its very important to look for the best new wordpress themes to work with. The theme have a very good potencial.

Toronto Cataract Sur says

Yeah I would've thought he'd give you the full version for free as well…

Toronto Cataract Sur says

Yeah I thought he would've given you the full version fro free as well

Especially considering all the traffic you'd be sending him from this post!

Christopher says

I'm really tempted by this type of blog theme. It would really help with my adsense blogs.

Toronto Cataract Su says

Good idea Matty, I think that this proce point may be too high for some – maybe that middle of the road one at around half the price would be a good idea?

Matty Byloos says

@Toronto Cataract Surgery:

I think so… if you're a novice or you know stuff about online marketing but are still a little new about making money with it, spending $100 is a lot…

Macbook Fund | A Lin says

You're absolutely right Matt, $100 theme is BIG for someone new to blogging, I'd suggest getting hands wet with free themes first and then take the big step.

moving quotes says

I see there is a lot of value in geeting a theme that has some support in case you would need to troubleshoot any problem, won't be alone trying it.

Bruce Ziebarth says

Zac, thank you for sharing this theme. I am in the process of educating myself on internet marketing. My goal is to replace one of my two jobs. I do agree that a completely original theme is best. But, for us just starting out and without deep pockets, this is a great alternative.

<abbr>Bruce Ziebarth’s last blog post..ZacJohnson.com is a Must Read for Making Money Online!</abbr>

Mauro - Staff " says

Zac, it is a great theme! Have you got any other?

Brad says

Pimping yet another affiliate product. It baffles me that your readers gobble this stuff up, nearly blind to the fact you are blogging for dollars. They must be the bottom of the evolutionary scale, at least in terms of intelligence.

It looks as a fantastic theme. Unfortunately, I still use Blogger instead of WordPress.

Photoshop Tutorials says

I think that it really depends on your revenue model if your going for affiliate income then you want the click throughs for which this design would do great but if you want more page views for which this design would also work well to make additional revenue from banner ads to. I currently get about 4-5 page views with my current theme which works well for me.

low cost online adve says

Nice theme alright, but i think its more optimized for display and small banner ads than google adsense. Could have been a little better if it was optimized for a few link units and blocks of GA as well.. Competitive pricing though!

Internet Marketing T says

I can't decide yet if I'll get one of Ultimate Blogging Theme's design or stick with my current theme. Mine is a bit simple, but I'm contented thus far. But, as others would say here, "It's really tempting!"

New Jersey Web Development says

Hey thanks for the awesome post. We are about to launch several more blogs, and while we usually design and code our own blogs we are starting to weight rather or not it is better to design our own or use other premium templates.

I have started to look into other themes, but I really like the them you have shown here today and we are thinking highly about using it.

Reza Fikri says

Great Theme, a bit costly for a newbie but it will save a lot of time.

DansMuayThaiMMA says

What plugins are you using with your site? I'd love to see how you used the design. I like the look of the theme. How easy is it to make additional customization? If you could comment back or add these things to your review I would find it helpful.

Ultimate Blogging Theme is based on an experience. It has not been created just from imagination.

CarlOcab, The KidBlogger, has been using this template for a while now and found it a money maker template. Now, he wants other people to take this opportunity, as well.

Ultimate Blogging Theme is a nice combination of what is necessary for blogging. A search engine friendly design, easy navigation and user friendly, optimal advertising placements and nice and eye-catching look are just a few features of Ultimate Blogging Theme.

Zac, you've made the right decision to get your hands on this amazing package. Hope other bloggers give it a shot, too.

Also special thanks to Carl for providing such a unique version.

This is interesting. I have a mortgage related new blog with the monetization of AdSense. I started with the WP Cutline Theme, but it did not converted. Then I changed into BlueSense after I had read from Warriorforum, that it is the best AdSense theme.

Unfortunately, it did not converted well, so I changed into BusinessBlue Theme, which is promising. If it does not work, I`ll try this one.

yournetbiz says

Theme always play vital role but depends on your topic . Money making themes mostly well oriented in color combination.

Penny Stocks says

Ultimate themes but main focus point is color combination . If your site simple looking professional if color more than 2 or 3 it comes into unusual platform site . Mostly guys not like .

Latest technology says

Money making themes are only proffessional one not color combination issue always simple only 2 – 3 colors in theme , looks attractive . Not much flash work there .

It does provide us with a steady income and wouldn't trade it for anything. I'm glad you're endorsing it since it's such a great WordPress Theme. I don't see us using another theme anytime soon.
