    Hi,

    My blog theme at the moment is looking pretty garish. Initially I thought it was great - but now, after using tools like Clicktale and CrazyEgg to see what my visitors are doing/clicking - I've decided it's time for change.

    So, tomorrow I'm launching my new beautiful theme - but how will a change like this affect my website?

    I mean, the hyperlinks on the page will be staying the same (pretty much), and my nofollows etc will be consistent - but is this a risk to do soemthing like this??

    "Confused" from the UK!

    Some time they can change.

    I had a theme, in Google result my site was not showing good. There was first sidebar the content.

    If you have content first then other widget then it will rank better

    I read it somewhere :D

    always use a 100% UTF-8 theme so that your rankings will rise and rise and yes lets just not forget Google Bot loves UTF-8 pages like a Romeo...

    it's that simple... :D

    Usually it does, I'm a wordpress template designer and usually change my theme every month and most of the time my SERP rankings change after google's crawl on my new theme.
