    Hello,

    I have a blog, and I have worked a lot on it to optimize SEO.
    Now I want to update it and change it's theme but I want to know at first, if changing the theme of my blog of WordPress will affect SEO. It worries me to lose all what I did for it.

    Hi,

    Generally speaking, well designed wordpress themes basing on DIV+CSS technique would not affect your SEO efforts since they would not touch the page contents.

    all the best,

    As well as you maintain your URL and website structure, it will not effect it

    Changing your THEME will never-ever affect your SEO. Google works on link-structure and not on designs.

    Hope it helps...

    see if you have outgoing links in your footer. alsoo some themes load faster hence are seo friendly.

    All things depends on what kind of theme you choose. Try to view the theme completely along with its links and whole structure. If that is prefect then no need to worry for loosing rankings.
    And even if you change the theme just adjust the css and all according to your previous design.

    So go ahead and all the best.
