Duru – What’s Your Favorite WordPress Theme for SEO?
Many people ask me;
“Duru, which WordPress themes do you use?”
My answer is – it depends…
Internet Marketing Duru is built on the Thesis Theme. I was in love with Thesis for a long time and don’t have the heart to change this site, though I stopped installing Thesis on new sites due to their lack of compatibility with other plugins and their proprietary code.
I do give Thesis kudos for the built in SEO aspects of the theme as well as their customer support / user support forums.
Choosing a WordPress theme has a lot to do with the functionality and feel you want for your sites. Here is the breakdown of Duru’s favorite WordPress themes for SEO, Video and Sales and Commerce:
My Favorite SEO WordPress Theme
If you are looking for a great suite of WordPress themes that will allow you to SEO the heck out of them I recommend going with StudioPress.
The Studiopress developer pack includes almost 50 different themes, if you anticipate creating one more site, developer is the way to go.
Luckily the StudioPress Developer pack is currently on sale!
To hyper-drive your StudioPress Theme SEO install the Joost WordPress SEO Plugin and configure accordingly.
When you get StudioPress you are installing the Genesis Framework and selecting a child theme. (This is transparent to you when you install the theme)
I especially like the:
- Generate Theme – for lead gen
- Magazine Theme – for blogs
My Favorite WordPress Video Sales Theme
Sometimes you need gorgeous sales pages that are easy to set up without being a web designer. For these sites I use OptimizePress.
Optimize Press is especially cool with video sales pages and stupid easy to set up. Integrates seamlessly with the Wishlist Plugin for membership sites.
Additional kudos to the excellent training videos for general theme functions as well as for specific training on how to integrate Optimize Press with Wishlist.
My Favorite WordPress Commerce Theme
My favorite commerce theme belongs to WooThemes.
If you haven’t tried them yet, I recommend it. Woo themes are relatively easy to use and have amazing commerce related plugins and functionality.
