    So theres this big back and forth going on between the developer of Thesis Theme and The Developer of Wordpress.. Google it.. I cant post links yet.. So now theres been 3-4 high profile blogs that have switched over from thesis to Genesis, most notably Chris Brogan and Laughing Squid... While I myself recently made the dive into the pool of thesis courtesy of BHW of course, I do realize as my blog starts to take off quite a bit more I'm going to have to go the White Hat Way & Pay... SMH.. My question is does anyone have any experience with the Genesis theme? they recently released 1.3 and from what I saw it's amazing and a lot more user friendly than the thesis theme.. the child themes are quality and Im interested in trying it out on a new blog I'm developing.. Any feedback around here? Cheers..:)

    I'm not a huge fan of Brian Gardner's themes, they all look the same, plus, Thesis IS a better theme IMHO. The guy is a solid designer, he just has a boring formula that gets redundant after a while.

    GREAT interview.

    Now about the original question, I can't say (from a coding standpoint) whether or not Thesis is better or worse than Genesis regarding built-in SEO functionality. I can say this though, I've used Genesis themes and have not felt it harder to get rankings or anything like that than with Thesis.

    For me and the latest changes in Caf**ine and instant genesis + metric or genesi + prose the latest has allowed me to get 2 sites 1 page of google in less than 2 months and for 37k exact matches . I think Genesis is getting better and better and specially that now comes with a SEO option built in so no need for allin one or any other plugin. For me it rocks!
