    Harsh Agrawal

    Thanks for your Comment Amit. Links are Fixed.



    I am not a designer but I will share this with my friend who is wordpress and thesis theme designer. Thanks Harsh


    Mad Geek @beingPC

    Links are not correct
    anyways thanks for sharing


    Harsh Agrawal

    Sorry about that..It’s fixed now..



    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.



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


    Tanuj Lakhina

    Yep. Links are not added correctly. The first link tag is not closed. Nice resource, thanks.



    Thank you for the list!



    I wanted to know any website, from which can i add my post in one click to many social sites for free.


    Tanuj Lakhina

    That’s a nice list. Some of these sites are new to me :)

    You forgot to add the most imporatant website to this list : http://weblogtoolscollection.com/submit-news/

    Excellent collection guys, thanks for the share.


    Harsh Agrawal

    Thanks Faqpal for your comment. And glad you find it useful. :)



    Thanks For The list Harsh.
    Just submitted our first free wordpress theme to these websites. :)



    thanks for this collection. but are they also accepting premium themes? i just created one and i am looking to promote it! thanks


    Harsh Agrawal

    Steff these websites accepts free themes. For premium themes they might charge a little to put it as features theme.



    Thank you this is great list, its hard to find a good place to promote your themes,


    AJ Clarke

    Thanks man this is very helpful. I just launched a new theme and was trying to find some good places to share it. I will checkout the links and hopefully at least a few will give me some traffic.



    Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this article plus the rest of the
    website is really good.



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


    Deep Wadhwa

    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.
