    My affiliate site has 1 x WP theme that is perfect for affiliate (amazon associates) and 1 x WP theme for content for SEO reasons....

    The Affiliate Theme doesn't have posting/ content ability hence why I decided to install another database and accompanying WP Theme...

    My question is - can anyone see a 'negative' with having two themes?

    I guess in terms of caching it is a negative because the visitors browsers has to load a new site if they clicked from an indexed blog post to the 'main site'

    Thanks for all replies

    Good question... I'm not sure of the answer, but it would probably look more natural if you hosted each on a different subdomain. For example amazon.yoursite.com and blog.yoursite.com. However, as you probably know the links you build to blog.yoursite.com wouldn't help the Amazon side of your site and vice versa so it's not really the best solution.

    You are right about caching, visitor will get webpage with some delay, but this thing can be optimised (caching, compressing, minification, CDN)

    there is no problem at all if you use different themes, many bloggers use that. If it is better for visitor, it's better for you too.

    If you would like to stay with 2 theme in 1 domain then choose CDN and faster theme. You must use faster theme and cdn because there have a ranking factor on google about website speed
