At first themed units seemed like a good idea so I went on and enabled them on a decent earning adsense account. Of course when you enable them, they override your normal settings. That means you end up with a bordered unit with a graphic watermark in it’s background. This is bound to lower your CTR in most cases.
In my case there was a decrease of around 5% in CTR which means a lot less clicks and subsequently a lot less money. Disabling them takes some time before it takes effect but I immediately saw an increase in CTR after disabling them. The moral of the story is that you should stick around with your regular boring non-bordered ad units.
Here are some blogs from my feed lists, which would make a good read for blackhats. Enjoy …

Take a loyal wife and an asshole husband. No, not a wife. Take a woman that gets paid from the asshole for her services. Assholes finish first, hence she will have to fake it, to please the asshole. A pleased asshole will pay more and since her intention is to get paid, that would be in her best interest.
Having real content is nice and all but at the end of the day you do it to get paid. Pleasing Google is not easy and faking it is easier than not, if that’s even possible.
