Does using the default blog template effect SEO?

    If I setup 2 Wordpress blogs hosted on my own server, for example:
    Blog #1 - Uses default Twenty Eleven template which comes with WP.
    Blog #2 - Uses default Twenty Eleven template which comes with WP but is custom modified with new colours, some small tweaks and a company logo.

    Would it make a difference to how either of these blogs ranked? Or would they still be the same?

    The reason I thought that it might have mattered is because I thought maybe Google thinks less of those sites using the default template as they appear to be like auto-blogs/little effort made... an exception to the rule almost?

    sometimes,blogger shows error,because of the code is directly copied, and Blogger did not interpret it.

    I would be surprised if that weren't the case. If it didn't make a difference, why would people go out of their way to design fancy new templates?

    Actually sometimes it will effect but not all the time and you can take it.

    I feel that unique sites are ranked better.
