    I'm currently looking for a good theme to replace the one of my website (www.leithseo.com).

    I'm looking for a theme which looks professional and a theme which is easy for a noob like me to configure and edit in Wordpress.

    I appreciate all your suggestions! Thanks guys.

    I was going to say Elegant themes....but then I looked at your site and Im sure thats an old elegant theme that I build a site on a year back.. In Elegant I get most joy out of Elegant estate(yes its an estate agent theme but you can strip all that out) Their best looking theme if you build it right is "the source". I tried out their new "lucid" last weekend and built a serviceable site in about 6 hours... If you have gone off Elegant you might find something here

    Take a look at Themeforest.net. They have some real nice themes there.

    Hello, Leith!

    I actually have induced you're quite the optimal SEO =) and actually posted a thread referencing your website. Although don't take this the wrong way mere ......., back handed compliment. The homepage seems a little off for example naturally one read left to right and you're bio is on the right. It would be a start to move it over, also you don't have a video or appealing graphics. I just feel like the page should reflect your stature here in the community and your personal success, good luck in all future endeavors!

    By the way, I just had a look at your "Clients Results" page and I must say it means jack shit to the general public, so if that's who you're targeting it would be helpful if you had some sort of an explanation of what these mean and what the actual rankings, etc. are.

    Check out some themes at woothemes.

    I once seen a theme which would perfectly fit here but I am not remembering it :(

    Will PM you if I find it

    Use blend of any colors like black and white or any others...but don't change the format or pattern of your theme as many users find it unusual sometimes.

    Since you're changing the theme, go for Responsive Design. So anyone can browser your site on iphone or ipad, user friendly too! Look at themeforest and mojothemes as they have the best designed themes right now. Minimalist is the way to go :)

    I didn't actually do the website design or anything like that. It was just put there as a brief summary, but the new website will be much more professional.

    Thanks for your suggestion anyway :)
