Whenever it comes to selecting a theme for your WordPress blog, very first question which comes: What kind of theme I should go for? With the commercialization of WordPress marketplace, there are many popular WordPress premium theme club out there, and selecting the best one is the task. If you are serious about blogging, you should be considering premium themes on your sites. No matter how hard you work to create great contents on your blogs, you must stand out from the crowd by making your blog design better, agree?
Why should you consider premium WordPress themes?
Premium WordPress themes are way better than the free themes; you don’t know whether the free themes contain malicious code or not. But, by using premium themes on your WordPress blogs, you will surely reap the best rewards from the search engines as most premium themes are designed for being search engine friendly.
The benefits of premium themes are:
- Flexibility to design even better
- Search engine friendly
- Regular updates
- Well coded theme
These are just a few of the excuses of using a paid theme for WordPress blog. The primary reason, I usually don’t recommend free themes, because they are poorly coded, and most of them are not search engine friendly. So instead of spending hours searching for a free theme, grab a perfect theme for your blog, which suits your niche and your personality.
Popular paid WordPress theme framework:
Genesis is also a framework just like Thesis. Unlike Thesis, Genesis comes with a cheap price tag of $60. If you are downloading Genesis, I will recommend you to opt for their pro package. That will include all their existing themes and future skins for free. I recently purchased pro-package and trying them on new niche sites, I’m building.
Why should you buy Genesis theme?
- Price tag: If there’s ONLY one thing that is making Genesis more popular from Thesis, it will be the price factor. And Genesis offers search engine friendly framework and support as Thesis offers, but for an affordable price.
- Frequent updates: Genesis frequently updates the versions to make it look better for both search engines and their users. You will find it easy to customize Genesis themes to make your blog design stand out from the crowd.

Thesis is undoubtedly the great themes ( it’s a framework) available in the blogosphere, used by many top-class bloggers. Recently, they launched Thesis 2, which is loved by developers but hated because of lack of documentation. If you are one of those who like PHP and CSS, Thesis is one of the best WordPress theme frameworks for you. Else you can grab Thesis 2.0 skins from marketplace, and give a custom look to your theme. Their cheapest plan comes with $87, but I would recommend you to grab professional or basic plus plan, as it will help you to grab free skins (SocialTriggers.com Skin, Pearsonified skins)
