    Bit of a broad question, what kind of theme are you looking for?

    You can choose from responsive WordPress themes. You can find many of them free and they perform better with yoast SEO plugin.

    After all the themes I've tried all I use now is WooThemes. At least you know you're getting themes that work. As far as SEO go they work great and are compatible with Yoast, which you should be using anyway. ThemeForest is so hit and miss

    It's not about the theme but the plugins.

    Here 9 top plugins for good search engine WP experience.

    1. WordPress SEO by Yoast

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/

    Download this plugin now and use it on every WordPress site you own.
    This plugin, in my opinion, is as important as the WordPress installation itself.
    It's also extremely easy to use.

    2. Simple URLs

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-urls/

    This plugin is great. You can track outbound links and control them completely right
    within the WordPress backend. If you add Disallow: /go/ into your robots.txt file it
    will also stop any authority from passing through the link itself.

    3. RB Internal Links

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rb-internal-links/

    Although this plugin hasn't been updated in more than two years, it still should be
    included in every WordPress installation. This plugin helps with internal linking.

    4. NextGen Gallery and Lightbox Plus:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lightbox-plus/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/

    These two plugins have been combined into one entry because they work hand-in-hand.
    Lightbox Plus uses Colorbox ? a lightweight jQuery image gallery script that is the friendliest
    for performance and doesn't hinder on-page SEO. Although Lightbox is included as an
    option within NextGen itself, Lightbox Plus offers a lot more options for the appearance
    and behavior of Lightbox's execution.

    5. Widget Logic

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/

    This plugin works specifically with your widgets. When installed, an extra option is added
    into each widget where you can define exactly where that widget should/shouldn't appear.
    This is great when you want to control what content appears in which sections of the site.

    6. Members

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/members/

    You may find that the default user roles provided by WordPress aren't enough for you to
    control the access that you want. This plugin adds flexibility to edit existing user roles as
    well as adding additional user roles. The plugin also comes with easy to use widgets and
    shortcodes so you can limit content based on the user's role.

    7. Use Google Libraries

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/use-google-libraries/

    This very simple plugin that substitutes JavaScript libraries called locally on your own
    server with Google's own CDN. This saves on bandwidth, keeps using compressed versions
    of the scripts, and increases the chance that a user already has these files cached and
    therefore increases the general performance of your site.

    8. W3 Total Cache

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/

    While we're on the subject of performance, W3 Total Cache is the most powerful and
    comprehensive caching plugin available. This plugin handles everything from combine and
    minification for both CSS and JS to HTML linebreak and comment removal, disk caching,
    browser caching and more.

    It's useful to test any settings out to ensure that there are no issues once enabled and
    deployed but most of the time W3 plays ball with your WordPress installation.

    9. Gravity Forms

    http://3doo.rs/gravity

    This is the best plugin available. Although paid (from $39), this plugin is a must have
    on any WordPress installation and pays for itself.
