10 Commandments for Downloading Free WordPress Themes

Be Patient : Search for a good number of free themes and make a stock of it.

Don't be Over Experimental : You should experiment with a maximum of 2 to 3 themes once you get 200+ visits. You can also ask your regular readers to provide opinion on which theme they prefer! However, if you keep on changing themes, you may welcome additional troubles!

Download Themes from Reliable Source : Never download themes from unauthenticated source! A lot of people downloading themes from torrent only find losing the functionality of the blog after some days of installing them.

Check The Theme for Authenticity : Download TAC (a wordpress plugin named Theme Authenticity Checker) from the plugin repository and install it. If the plugin detects any malicious code, or redirects, it will be shown in red! Be Alert then!

Delete Unused Themes from Server : It's you who must take the case of security seriously! I highly recommend you delete all the themes from the server (obviously which you don't use) Anything you install in the server from unauthenticated source adds to the vulnerability of the server!

Check Header.php : Most of the malicious codes and tracking scripts are installed in header.php. People who are offering free themes on forums, websites and torrents do so for a purpose! they put hacks so that they can redirect visits to their site, and a lot of additional stuff which I'm yet to understand. So, always check the header.php for malicious codes

Modify the CSS : Learn CSS from w3schools.com and modify the look of your theme. It'll help you till take a rebirth!

Keep Your Themes within A Folder : Free or Premium, always keep your themes in one folder and sub categorize them. It'll be easier to navigate!

Go for a premium Theme: You should always make an investment of buying a theme! It is a prerequisite! A good theme increase the average time of your web pages, and this signal is used by Google while crawling your website again! More the people stay, better it is from search engine ranking point of view!

Well, I can manage only 9 of the Commandments! Hey readers, are you listening? Help me out with 1 more!

Final Thoughts While Choosing a Theme

The Best Things are always kept simple! Learn this from Google's Homepage! A simple theme creates readership! People love to be focus, if they are not distracted with tons of features! It increase your time on site and reduce bounce rate!

You not only experience a higher CTR, but also a high CPC for your AdSense ads!

Use these themes and some plugins to empower your blog

All the Best and Good Luck!
