    Ok, I am going to start site flipping, but my wordpress sites look like the dog shit on them. I mean they are really crap. I am good at SEO, and backlinking, along with writing keyword rich articles, but my sites look bad. Can anyone suggest to me some basic themes and plugins I can use like slideshows etc to make all my sites look really good. If I can get this down, I am going to do some serious site flipping, as I have 9 or 10 sites coming up in the top 5 for excellent keywords.

    I am only now realizing that design/look is everything to those guys on Flippa. I am strictly a numbers man...anyway, any good solid suggestions, especially if its the sort of rinse and repeat system I can use on all my sites.

    Use a premium theme. Search the downloads section for some good premium themes or try a torrent website, or even buy them. I may share a few myself in the coming days.

    Good theme! Look for a good paid or free theme, or hook up with a designer.

    you can search Free website template (css+div will best)in google and download them
    HTML and CSS code will not hard but you still need lots time to try and learn.
    There many tutorial in internet you need patience to read them and try to write code by yourself.
    I think good looking website must be clean not too much colour those webstie may not cool but make peolpe feel comfortable.
    I think write a website most important thing is patience.
    good luck

    Search for iFeature wp theme from cyberchimp it is a very good theme and easy to use. SEO friendly and the paid version isn't expensive.

    i think if you really can't do it yourself, outsource it and get someone else to do it.

    there's plenty of people on BHW who are capable of very good work, so have a look around if you haven't already. there's also a lot of freelancing sites out there on the net if you'd rather go that way.

    anyway, this is how i see it. if you get someone else to do your graphic design stuff, then you have more time yourself to keep pumping out more sites, or work on the ones you already have. you get a lot more work done in a less amount of time!

    I monitor Flippa auctions closely. Contrary to your belief, Flippa buyers don't really care much about site design as long as site is having good history of traffic and revenue..

    Easiest way would be to outsource it to someone. If you are using a free theme, make sure to check it against a couple of tools. Many of these free themes have encrypted links to porn websites and the links.

    Well themeforest etc has really cheap themes, then find someone on fiverr to make you a banner - most are worth the $5 (as in they are pretty bad :p) but better than paying hundreds of dollars if you have no clue what you are doing.
