#3. Sticky Sidebar ads with Q2W3 Fixed Widget Plugin
A cool thing to show ads or an email subscription widget in style on your wordpress blog is Sticky Sidebar widget. When you scroll down a big page where the sidebar is no longer than the content, usually the sidebar area is blank. But this plugin helps you showing a fixed widget on the sidebar which will follow the user as he scrolls down the page. It get the attention of the reader towards your sidebar and increases the conversion rate as well.
This works great for websites which are monetized with Affiliate Marketing or other display ads because the chances of getting your ads clicks increase by 400% and Google Adsense does not permit you to show ads this way. However, I see sticky Google Adsense Advertisement on so many websites and they are doing this for a period of years.

#4. Change the font scheme of your blog even if the theme customizer does not have an option to do so
Yeah. there are many themes that are a bit less customizable and you are not going to change the theme but fonts if you can. So, there is a plugin “Easy Google Fonts” which can change your font scheme very easily from the default theme customizer.
I can change the font scheme of my blog very easily. And I have talked about font schemes so many times here. But if you want to copy the font scheme of a website you recently visited, you can do it with this plugin. All you need is a little familiarity with Inspect element option in Google Chrome.
