    ^ Titles says it all. I'm looking to change my wordpress theme, since it is a landing page theme, so you can't add a lot of pages of content. But first, I want to take some precautions to make sure I don't lose ranks due to that change of theme (I want gain ranks instead, obviously).

    You won't lose ranking due to theme change unless you do something stupid. Just don't change the url structure and make sure G bot is not blocked in the meta tags or robots.txt
