    I spent 2 1/2 months designing a website with html/CSS/JavaScript and personally I think it looks great. My question is can I use this same design for other websites? Strip the content, leave the div names exactly the same, maybe change the color layout, but everything else will be the same. I've already designed a nice looking website that could be used across multiple niches, why should I spend the time to create a unique design for each one? I figure I can put the same effort into writing content and push out similar sites a lot quicker (especially if the current one works). I assume it won't hurt because thousands of people use the same wordpress theme everyday.

    What do you think? Do you use the same website code but change the content? Can this affect serp rankings?
