As a part of my interest, I try many WordPress themes like Genesis, WooThemes, Elegantthemes and, I found all of them to be good but finally it’s the Thesis theme which I finally use and recommend to others. There is one thing which you should know about Thesis is, if you are not a coder, you would find it hard to customise Thesis theme, and I suggest you to either buy a Thesis skin of hire a Thesis developer to design your site.
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.
