I have gone through a lot of posts here and in general but couldnt make up my mind for the best theme for wordpress in terms of SEO. I guess the important factors regarding this are the clean code, mobile friendliness, SEO tools inclusion and lightweight themes.
In my area of interest, i have two main competitors for some keywords and they are quite high up in SEO rankings and they both use the same themes (could it be just pure coincidence) and i do not know if i should pick the same theme or not. I am sure many of you would recognise this theme here in Envato market on this [link removed] website.
Does the theme really affect the rankings that much?
I would greatly appreciate help from any of you who have good or bad experience with any of the wordpress themes.
