    Thesis is ugly as hell and im tired of looking at it, specially the sites that are starting to make some money. I get my sites to rank well with Thesis and a little hesitant to replace it with another theme and use AIOSEO.

    anyone have any input for me?
    is AIOSEO just as good?

    thanks

    There's nothing really special about the SEO of Thesis. Most dedicated plugins will have the same or even higher functionality.

    Show us one of your thesis sites and let us critique.

    Ive found they both offer fairly similar options. Just set them up, see what they let you do, and make a decision.

    Thesis {is|can be} a chore and confusing at first, but once configured can look pretty good. The code runs pretty fast as well, a bonus when you're not running a dedicated server.that you'd have to find with a different theme, and is hard to evaluate. Other than that, pretty similar options from my experience.

    Thesis is one of the best and easiest themes I ever used. Modify it little bit (or pay someone) and it can look beautiful.

    Im pretty use to Thesis and how it works. There are a couple of functions im not fond of losing even though i dont know if they offer anything beneficial. Like the metadata for tags and the 303 redirect for hiding links.
    I have been thinking about how to test the 2. It is about impossible unless you buy 2 domains with the same name and create the EXACT same site, which i think is a horrible idea.
    OR
    Remove thesis from one of my ranking sites and go with a better template and AINSEO and see if i drop!?

    I have a sh*t ton of blogs and think that if i can learn to customize the default template for wp (the newer one with 3.0) it could save me a boat load of time
    and look much better than thesis

    or i could spend a couple days trying to make thesis more appealing, not my first desire

    I would recommend you get the EasyThesis skin, looks alot better than stock with easy design options to change the default Thesis settings.

    i searched for skins or thesis designs avail but havent found anything really.
    i figured there would b a lot out there.
    i saw a niche site the other day that was obviously mfa
    that i thought looked awesome, i viewed the source and it said thesis 1.7 and i was like FRICK.
