I’m sure many of you heard a lot about Thesis wordpress theme. In most of the review you will read that Thesis is one of the best SEO optimized WordPress theme. I wish if I can deny this fact. One simple reason I can’t deny this because I’m not a coder and Thesis helped me to simply overcome this problem with lots of Thesis design option under WordPress dashboard.
Before I started using Thesis Theme, I already used 5 WordPress theme and I found it really tough to get a theme which is feature rich and also SEO optimized. Using different theme also crated issues for me, as it added lots of options in my WordPress database tables, many themes were not SEO optimized, so many useless part was also become a part of Search engine.
Why I love thesis wordpress theme?
If you have gone through shoutmeloud monthly traffic report for month of April 2009, you can clearly see the drastic change in shoutmeloud bounce rate.
Bounce rate : Earlier shoutmeloud bounce rate was almost 70% but after using Thesis wordpress theme it comes down to 17%.
Here are screenshots one is before I started using Thesis wordpress theme and one if after I started using Thesis wordpress theme.
IMO 70% bounce rate to 17% bounce rate is a big difference for any blogger. And this happened when I switched from normal WordPress theme to Thesis WordPress theme.
Another simple reason to love Thesis wordpress theme is because I’m not a coder. I enjoy writing articles and editing your theme all the time is a complete waste. Thesis comes with option and design panel which will let you quickly customize Thesis theme. If not, you can always grab free Thesis skins, which will let you quickly design Thesis Theme. Another good thing about editing Thesis is that you don’t have to play with codes on every single .php file. There are two custom files. Editing them with the help of Thesis hook is as easy as copy paste anything. More over Thesis has a support forum for it’s member, where you can find unlimited Thesis customization tips and you can always seek for help, when ever you are stuck in a situation.
Adding Adsense into Thesis Theme
Inserting adsense code was always a tough task for me. With the help of whytodowork wordpress plugin you can easily add adsense to any place in your theme.
125*125 Ad spot for Thesis theme : April was the first month when I started getting private advertiser. Adding 125*125 ad spot on sidebar is again made easy with the help of hooks and Adrotate WordPress plugin.
To cut the long story short, thesis helped me to customize the theme the wordpress theme in simple and easiest way.
Though people have different perception about Thesis theme. IMO it’s worth to spend 164$ to acquire developer license of Thesis wordpress theme and use it effectively on bunch of websites, or you can also grab the single user copy of Thesis theme for 87$.
