  17. Thanks for the info Nandita. There are many beautiful WP themes out there, but how many of these are properly coded and SEO optimized? That’s where I wonder if the free themes really do anything at all for SEO? What do you think?

  20. I am looking to change for my blogs. It gives me many good idea. Keep it up!

  21. Thanx its great resource ,Looking forward to your new post.

  22. Great posting. I run 7 blogs and test all for SEO and keyword optimization, so having an SEO friendly wordpress theme is very important to me.

    I’ll test a couple of the themes that you have listed here. Also, if anyone knows of a plugin to find out which keywords are being searched and clicked by users to get to a blog, I would appreciate knowing about it. I’ve been using webalizer to analyze my search terms but it doesn’t seem to be working well for wordpress blogs. I have one blog getting 80 visits per day but no stats on which search terms are being found to bring users to the blog. Any thoughts on whats going on?
