    Hello Harsh,

    Appreciate your effort for sharing those websites above. But I do have a concern. Except few websites, the others have alexa rank of over lakhs.

    The point is if someone submits a free theme to a website then what are chances of getting a sell from a website which is not getting a good traffic. I hope you understand my point.

    Could you please figure this out and tell me what will be the impact?

    Waiting for your response.

    So, these are only for free wordpress theme promotion or will they accept premium wordpress themes that are sold?

  8. Tanuj Lakhina says

  9. SmashinGeeks says

    Great Collection, thanks for sharing , i will definitely submit my theme to these directories.

  10. NpXp says

    Submitting themes to these sites is a great way to receive traffic to ones blog.

    If you do not know how to create a theme all you have to do is get it done from someone else for a small price and get your website link on the footer and zoom you go.

    Free backlink every time someone uses your theme.
