    Wordpress is very flexible and indeed, many of the themes are good for SEO.

    Ensure that you have the All-in-one SEO pack plug-in installed, along with permalinks setup correctly.

    The CMS editor in Wordpress produces very clean code, which is good for SEO, so ensuring that your template is coded in divs and not tables, and that the code is clean and concise, means that as long as your onsite SEO is strong enough you will be sorted for SEO.

    My personal favourite is the 'White as Milk' Theme, which besides being free, is also very simple, so lends itself to easy customisation.

    You can use any Wordpress Theme, Free or Paid.
    Most of all newly designed theme which are free are very functionally and designed from SEO point of view, so you don't need to go for premium themes.

    Just Google it "Free Wordpress Themes" and BOOM. You will get tons of nice and free wordpress themes, which will give a corporate look to your wordpress blog.

    Yes, I'm aware there are plenty of themes available, PLENTY! I do recall a while ago, however, that a Wordpress 'expert' was claiming that one particular theme got indexed really quickly in Google in comparison to others, as well as being set up really well for ongoing success. I wish I could find that post now

    Best would require a test of themes with identical data and on the same network. Then one would have to create parameters where the themes got crawled equally and were put up at the same time, etc.

    I do a lot of reading, posting, blogging and I've not come across such. I've come across claims from one designer or another how their themes are "optimized".

    Fortunately onsite factors weight in ranking is not that high as long as you follow industry standards most themes should be just fine. And to select a theme based solely on perceive SEO would be a mistake.

    I concur with the use of a Plug in. Find the theme you like and choose a plug in and make sure you understand how that plug in works.

    I am not having any problem ranking with WordPress. I use the All in One SEO plugin.

    I too think almost mostly themes are good, the thing you need to do is to choose which one is suitable for your blog.

    • eMoms Legacy 1.0
    • Golden Day 1.0
