Some may be still wondering is there any restriction of using a particular theme for AdSense ads.

The answer is simple no. There is no restriction for using any particular theme. But, your theme should follow terms and conditions of Adsense. Adsense doesn’t like themes which are poorly designed. Not having minimum space between widgets, posts. Adsense ads should not overlap with the texts or links. If it is overlapping it may cause unintentional clicks.

Remember AdSense is all about clicks, though there are CPM ads. But, those are very less beneficial than CPC ads. In case of CPC ads, a single click may give you $50 which is not in case of CPM ads.

So, my advice will be using a theme which is properly designed for AdSense ads. But, do not use a theme which is poorly designed as this may lead to your Adsense account ban.
