    I hear user use premium themes when creating a website. Would using regular WP theme have less an effect ranking on search engines? I trying to rank a low comp keyword and I don't want to pay for premium theme. Would that be okay.

    And if did want to choose a premium theme, what would be the best place in getting one?

    It's not a problem whether you are using it or not for low comp keyword.
    If you aim to choose that,i suggest you some sites,
    Divi,
    Responsive Wordpress Theme,
    Specular,
    Massive Dynamic.

    There are plenty of themes available in wordpress
    Premium themes are available for free also, you can download it from them.
    you can select the theme according to your wish whether your theme belongs to E-commerce, Photographic etc.,
    Here are some of the Responsive themes that i have listed below
    The Monday
    Blogger
    Access Press staple
    Fotography


    If you don't like those themes browse for it. May be something you can buy or download according to your taste.

    You can rank with any themes, using premium theme does not help in the ranking. Choose the lightweight theme with the developer frequently updates

    Using premium theme will not help you in ranking.Ranking is based on content links build and keyword etc.You can rank by less themes too.
    If you wanna to use premium themes then go with Massive dynamic,specular as your needs.

    You can go for premium or free themes. Page loading speed is one of the important factor here.
    You lose some visitors. So try to use simple themes.

    It doesnt matter. Just make sure the theme is responsive and loads fast on all platforms and you'll be fine.
