Seo WordPress Theme – Thesis

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

If you’re in the middle of choosing the best Premium WordPress Theme for your blog, Thesis Wodpress Theme is the answer. I am using Thesis on my blog,, and boy it feels and looks great. Other big names in the Blogosphere like Darren Rowse, Neil Patel and Brian Clark are also using it.

Part of the reason why Thesis is a kick ass WordPress theme is because it’s created by the best WordPress Theme Designer. Chris Pearson’s experience as a web developer and extensive knowledge of SEO + CSS + PHP + HTML guarantee that Thesis is the only WordPress Theme you’ll ever need.

Why Thesis WordPress Theme?

Good question! That’s the same question I’ve asked myself before I finally decided to use Thesis on my blog. There are tons of reasons why you should use Thesis but here are some for your consideration.


If you’re new to blogging and you totally suck at SEO, CSS, PHP and HTML, Thesis is for you. Chris Pearson created Thesis with the users in mind. That’s why he did all the job to let you “DO MORE, CODE LESS”. After all, bloggers’ least worry should be the design of their blogs.

Take a look at my blog, I did all the customization myself… the design and everything and let me tell you that I barely know CSS, PHP and HTML. That’s because Thesis is easy to customize. In fact, 90% of all your customization needs can be done through Thesis Options and Thesis Design. All you have to do is click and save. Thesis also has its own Support Forum where you can find solutions to all possible problems you might encounter.

Well, if you’re a professional blogger, Thesis is still for you. Thesis has unparalleled SEO, CSS+PHP+HTML optimized and inspiring typography. What else would a professional blogger need from a WordPress theme?


Just wanted to let you know that The Bygone Bureau is a finalist for this year’s SXSW Web Awards in the Blog category. People started paying attention to our publication once we switched to Thesis last fall, and I think we owe much of our success to your design work.- Kevin from The Bygone Bureau

…. Thesis is the best out of the box solution I’ve seen in regards to a blog theme. Easy to use, pretty damn customizable and when you see them say over and over on the Thesis sales page that the support is awesome, they ain’t lyin’. And all future upgrades/releases of the theme are free.- Sugarrae from her Thesis Theme Review

Thesis is incredible…. One week ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed of paying money for a WordPress theme. Now, I’m seriously considering laying down $77 for the developer’s option.- Jordan from Elegant Digital

“Great, simple, effective SEO.” From my mate in Australia who’s a senior SEO guru for Yahoo, when he saw my site.- Mark McGuinness via email

The truth is, your personal attention to this and the Thesis theme in general is why I signed on. I know something good when I see it. Not only are your skills exemplary, but your heart’s in the right place. Please keep up the good work.- John Farr via email

Just want say you created a great theme! It’s very flexible, SEO-optimized and so simple to customize. Just 3 words: I love it! – FlepStudio via email

Just wanted to express my gratitude for Thesis…. and all the work that Chris et al. have done. I installed it this morning, followed instructions by the letter, and things went very smoothly. I had to familiarize myself with the hooks concept – it makes all the sense in the world! I like to tweak code here and there, and the hooks method as well as the whole Thesis framework/vision helps me do just that without having to get too engrossed in code! When I do have to know some code, the forum is absolutely the best place to go. I’ve been most appreciative for the support community…. So thanks for a great product and community.- Sister Julie Vieira, IHM from A Nun’s Life

Well I’m totally stoked with the latest release of Thesis and so glad I hitched my web aspirations to your talented little wagon; plus the support on the forum is superb.- Raquel from Growing Up Green

I really don’t see how any other wordpress premium theme designers can compete with you. I have been following your work since you started thesis as well as the other top wp theme designers, and the work you are doing is really 1,000 steps ahead of them.- Jake Summers

Thank you so much for your AWESOME THEME!! I have been trying to do it the “free way” for a while and I am blown away by how awesome this is.- Jamey from Miami City Diggs

Awesome! This is the best WordPress theme I have ever used. I believed in this theme so much I bought it. I was nervous at first after investing money into this theme, but today, the support and community have made that decision a worthwhile one. I can only hope more people buy into this great theme. This theme is worth every penny! – Nightfall from

What an adventure. I literally did not know a single thing about blogging or WordPress two months ago. I’ve lurked on here for awhile and picked up the coding knowledge I needed. Thanks for the (affordable!) design and amazing functionality.- Michael from ICM-Bot

Chris, I get complimented on my blog’s design at least several times a week. I am SO happy I bought this theme! It’s been the best. And I agree with the others, thank you so much for taking the time to add all these tutorials. I feel spoiled.- Toblerone from Simple Mom

Thanks for the info… works great, instructions are very clear which is great for someone like me who doesn’t know a lot of coding. Just learning as I go along. Great theme, so happy I purchased it! – Sasha from The Slavic Bazaar %u2026People have told me I was crazy to pay for a theme, but at every stop you make it worthwhile with updates such as this and the thesis forum which I have found extremely helpful. – Lee from The Blissful Pixel

Not only does your Thesis Theme rock, but I am shocked how much effort you are putting into providing tweaks and very detailed tutorials after the initial development and launch.- Casper from Conscious Bliss

I however am not a top-notch WordPress designer, but rather am learning the trade. So I value my time highly enough that paying Chris P. $87 (less during intro phase) is ridiculously inexpensive to me. And the fact that Chris P. spends time here and in the forums answering questions, ….. priceless! – Rees from Women’s Memoirs

You know, I’ve waded hip-deep into a lot of WordPress templates in the past 2 years, both for my own, and other people’s projects. Thesis was by far the easiest to work with, and with the best results. – Torideaux from MindTweaks

Everyone who sees it, loves the look. In fact, I got a small job out of it last week because the client believes I “Get it.” (his words).- Michael from The Editorial Engine

The thesis theme has been such a great investment. I am new to website design and wordpress, so I’m really glad I went with Thesis because of all the support. It’s been really easy to figure out how to customize things how I want, and I’ve gotten so many compliments on my site. – Eileen from Breathe

Hope Chris’s themes (both Thesis and his free themes) are much more well-crafted than the typical themes out there. It’s what’s on the inside (the code) in addition to what you can see (attention to details) that sets them apart. – Lisa from Hit Those Keys

There are not enough superlatives in the lexicon to describe this theme. It is SMOKIN’ HOT! – Jay from Phoenix Real Estate Search

Thank you for your commitment to excellence and continuous improvement. I love the theme, and love that you continue to improve it. Thanks! – Bruce from Keener Living

Caffeinated Content – Members-Only Content for WordPress

Seo Premium WordPress Theme

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Let’s face the facts; there are a gazillion websites on the internet. You don’t have the luxury of publishing a mediocre site when, at most, you have only a few seconds to capture the reader’s attention. Your site design is the web with which you catch your fly. Whether they stick and stay is up to your content. One of the main reasons Thesis WordPress Theme has become so popular, is that it provides a clean, elegant design with enough flexibility to allow you to tailor it to any need.

Design – Thesis WordPress Theme Version 1.3

Thesis Version 1.3 continues where previous versions left off, by providing stellar typography, user accessibility, interface design and search engine optimization. The overall look is professional, with sufficient gravitas to lend authority to your content. Elements of the overall design are endlessly customizable through the easily navigated user interface. Layouts and fonts are controlled without the need to fiddle with the site’s core code. Everything is laid out in an intuitive manner which doesn’t require an advanced degree in computer science to navigate. This attribute alone makes it a perfect choice for anyone deploying a site for the first time. The interface abounds with nice ergonomic touches such as the inclusion of an asterisk next to web-safe fonts on the selection menus. And let’s not overlook the “B.A. Save Button”! But even this trademark item is customizable, although Chris Pearson, Thesis’s creator, doesn’t advise it.

Changes from Thesis WordPress Theme Version 1.2

Many improvements were added to version 1.3 however, there are three additions that deserve special mention. The new Thesis Layout Constructor allows you to mix and match the column order any way you like, maximizing the possibilities between one, two or three column layouts. Content can be located in the middle or either side of the sidebars, all with the click of the mouse. This is possible due to a new HTML module structure creating six new possible layouts. In addition to this added flexibility, Thesis WordPress Theme now adds a Framework Selector which allows you to select between a page framework and a full-width framework. In full-width mode, your headers and footers carry to the edge of the browser’s viewable space. Again, the concept is flexibility without having to touch the underlying core code. The third major improvement over version 1.2 is a more robust hook system. Previously, if you wanted to customize your theme, you hacked away at the HTML for each individual template file. This process was time consuming at best, and a recipe for disaster at worst. Once you worked out all the bugs, you were off and running, but what if you decide at some point to change your theme? Guess what? You get to do it all over again. The hook system, which was introduced in version 1.2, solves that problem by creating one of the most critical ways to customize your theme without touching the underlying code. Even more importantly, hooks do their work while assuring forward-compatibility. Thesis WordPress Theme now has thirty-one hooks which allow you to add and subtract content such as ads, pictures, design attributes etc.

Thesis WordPress Theme And Search Engine Optimization

The whole point of a website and/or blog is to drive traffic to it so that you can share your unique content. To do so, you must optimize your code for search engines, without landing in the dreaded Supplemental Index. To begin with, WordPress is designed to be very amenable to SEO, but even with that on your side, the way your theme(s) are built have an enormous impact on how search engines view your site. Thesis WordPress Theme includes code that is optimized for search engine retrieval without any customization. With Thesis WordPress Theme you can easily optimize the content of a page and manage keywords for better pass-through. Of course Thesis plays well with plug-ins like SEO Title Tag for more control, but out-of-the-box, Thesis handles SEO well.

Thesis WordPress Theme – Pricing And Support

Thesis provides purchase options to fit the needs of every level of user. The basic package, or Personal License, sells for $87 and includes a single seat license for one production site and one development server. The catch with this package is that the footer information must remain intact, although this is truly a small nit to pick. For a little less than double the price of the basic license, or $164, you get the Developer’s License which gives you unlimited use of the theme on any number of sites and the ability to remove the footer link. If you’re unsure, and just want to dip your toe in the water, you can opt for the Personal License and then upgrade to the full-up Developer’s license later for an additional $77. What do you get for your money? Well, as it turns out, quite a lot: Theme upgrades are free for life. You get total access to Thesis Forums, free tidbits to customize your theme such as styles, images and the like, all available for download, and unbelievable support. This touches on an itchy subject. We all know that claims of superior user support are, more often than not, marketing hype designed to make you feel better about putting forth the green. Except that in this case, it happens to be true. The creator of Thesis, Chris Pearson is often the one providing support, often within a day of posting your question. But you don’t need to take my word for it, just check out the testimonials page.

Thesis WordPress Theme : The Conclusion

Yes, there are thousands of free themes out there available for download, and yes, you can create your own with WordPress template functionality, but why? If you’re a novice webmaster or just starting to blog, then you probably don’t have the requisite skills to do all the hard-core coding. On the other hand, even if you have god-like coding fu, why bother? You have far more important things to spend time on such as researching and writing content and managing your ad revenues. Especially if you are in the latter classification, Thesis WordPress Theme will pay for itself rather quickly. There simply is no other WordPress theme available that delivers so much for so little. That is why Thesis is one of the best choices of WordPress theme available today. And for the same reasons, I use Thesis WordPress Theme for my blog. 🙂

Thesis WordPress Theme Version 1.3.2 is already out. And the newest version of Thesis includes more fantastic features that makes blogging more efficient. Some of the added features are: more SEO options and improvements, fixes on SEO plugin compatibility, improved multi-media box functionality, new page template functionality and hooks, design and layout changes, and MANY MORE!

What do you think of Thesis? 🙂
