    You can youse the default ones, it does not even matter.

    I was using the twenty- something's theme that cames with the WordPress.

    You can use any theme you want.

    Good Luck with your journey OP
    Im literally doing the same thing, expect for the traffic source I'm using reddit, I applied for adsense since 8 days now and haven't heard anything from them yet.
    I have one question about the adsense account you have purchased: does it come with an approved domaine and u just link the domaine with your wordpress and then start sending traffic?

    For me the best traffic source were fb groups.

    It look me literally one hour ( that was the time to create my first quiz and post it to a dozen groups ) before i started earning some money!

    Thanks for the response, I'll try to move to a more cpm heavy network soon then. I believe I ended up getting 5 clicks so $0.34 still seems low hopefully it will just improve with time.

    The idea for the quiz site? Off other journey threads and methods posted here on BHW.

    Reddit's a good idea all though I'm a bit apprehensive about all the downvoting etc but I'll have to give it a shot. For the adsesne account, I provided them with the domain and WordPress site and they essentially got it approved for me.

    I'll probably just move into different social sites instead of botting, but its a possibility.

    You can use secondary domains that redirect to your main, there's a bunch of free services that give you free domains.

    I use various niches for example cars, geography, movies...

    You must take it slowly on posting on groups. I was waiting at least 10 minutes before posting to a new group.

    Update

    What I've done

    - Transferred all quizzes onto new quiz plugin
    - Made a featured image for each quiz
    - Fixed some styling issues
    - Set up MailChimp
    - Resolved some ads.txt issues which will hopefully improve things.

    To Do

    - Mobile push notifications
    - Finish getting ads to work
    - Create social media pages
    - Request access to a bunch of FB groups so I can later post to them


    However, I now go away for 2 weeks for a holiday. With the second week being without much internet, I'll get the website fully ready within the first week so when it comes to the second I only need to post to FB groups instead of making changes to the website.

    Earnings: £0.28/$0.34

    Unfortunately it's not all about monetization that's why most people that start a quiz website quits their journey after 2 weeks. Don't get me wrong your plugin is okaish but I prefer having a plugin/theme that can offer me more options to entertain and increase user engagement.

    90% of journey threads go nowhere in 2 weeks, that is not because of the journey, but because of the people who run those journeys.
    It doesn't have anything to do with a theme or plugin that people use. I stated that the theme-quiz has shown worse performance and negative results on both engagement and revenue in comparison...but each of us has different preferences on what software to use, op made his choice.
