    Hey everyone, I always get custom made templates and just wondering if installing the same template on one of my other sites which is in a different niche will somehow count as duplicate site or something? Because that site has dropped in ranking and stays at that position no metter how many links I build and it all happened right after my site got hacked and after an installation of new template.. any suggestions and advice? Thank you!

    Theme doesnt have anything to do with SEO really unless your site loads slow or its poorly coded...In relation to being hacked, if this is the case, ditch the site, start a fresh.

    It doesnt matter, changing themes can cause a temporary change in rankings only because google recognizes a change in the page, but everything gets back to normal after a while, I would say the mine reason is because you got hacked, not cause of the theme.
