Search Engine Optimized (SEO) WordPress Theme Gallery

When picking out a new WordPress theme, there are a lot of factors to consider. Do you want a 2-column theme or a 3-column theme? What about AJAX comments? Maybe you want specific colors? No matter what your preference is, one of the main factors you should probably consider is how search engine friendly your theme is going to be.

There are a lot of WordPress SEO techniques that theme designers can use when creating their theme to help optimize it for search engines, and several authors have taken the time to do so. Here are what I feel are the best search engine optimized WordPress themes:

  • How To: Optimize Your WordPress Title

    Looking to optimize your WordPress title? While this blog will probably not get to caught up in covering search engine optimization, there are definitely a few tweaks that you can make to your existing WordPress theme that will help optimize your blog’s search engine potential. In this post I’m going to cover a quick adjustment that you can make to your title tag to show a more optimal title.

    Optimize Your WordPress Title

    By default, your WordPress theme will likely come with a pretty standard code for your blog’s title. It probably looks something like the following:

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> » Blog Archive <?php } ?> <?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    Unfortunately this is not the best way to code your title for your WordPress. Ideally, you’ll want a more search engine friendly way to display a custom title for each page of your WordPress blog. In order to achieve this, here is the code I recommend using:

    <title><?php if (is_home () ) { bloginfo(‘name’); }
    elseif ( is_category() ) { single_cat_title(); echo ‘ - ‘ ; bloginfo(‘name’); }
    elseif (is_single() ) { single_post_title();}
    elseif (is_page() ) { single_post_title();}
    else { wp_title(‘’,true); } ?></title>

    This code will actually display a custom title for each different type of page on your blog automatically.

    If you’re truly ambitious, you can actually use a plugin that will do all the dirty work for you. That plugin is called WordPress SEO, and it will help automate the process for displaying completely custom meta tags for each page of your blog, including the title field.
