WordPress Theme Tweaks

WordPress Theme Tweaks for Internet Marketing

As I learn more about using wordpress blogs I have been spending more time on tweaks to the themes. As far as SEO and Internet Marketing are concerned, most blog themes need some adjustments to make them search engine friendly. It’s not always fun but I must say I now have some bitchin’ modified themes to use whenever I set up a new WordPress blog for Internet Marketing purposes.

Usually I just upload the blog, try a few of the many availble themes and then I start tweaking away! Usually I figure things out by trial and error but I am sure there has to be a better way… but in the end it works and I have some nice blogs to show for it!

I just modified a free theme Wuhan and put my own little touches on it.

If you are really fond of it and wanna use it on one of your sites, simply drop me a line and ask for the Topica WordPress theme & I’ll send the theme to ya in a zip. Since I didn’t code it from the ground up I am not sure about whether I can freely distribute it, but hey, if my friends ask for it – what am I supposted to do??

I nabbed a great little feature and dropped it on the sidebar and that’s the “latest posts” command which I rarely see included in a theme, yet it is such an obvious choice, especially if you want a little SEO power in your blogs as it will show the latest 10 posts on each page of your site, instead of how the stock themes just show them on the front page. That means each category page (usally higher PageRank) and each individual pots page will now send a little love to the newest posts on your blog! Pretty cool, eeh?

Of course I also dumped the Blogroll thang and replaced it with my own “on the net” links which you can add by tweaking the sidebar.php file. Simply replace one of my links (or keep them there and add you own).

Also, the header graphic can be easily customized. Just open up in any graphic editor and change the title to the name of your site. It’s also pretty easy to just wipe out my trees and blue sky and add your own image or design. This can really make your page look unique!

Also in the sidebar is a php include pointing to a feed and will randomly show one of the 20 latest article excerpts. This is a great way to add great words to your blog pages and of course you are free to leave it on the sidebar as I am always happy to get links from my friends :’>

The words are power words and can even bring you some extra traffic!

Well, hope you like theme and as I said, drop me a line if you’d like it to use on your web sites! The tweaks are on me!
