Hi All,

Im trying to find a wp theme that will work with images that are hosted on flickr. This theme should be able to generate thumbnails from these images as well.

Have a client who has some sort of autoblogger system that was developed for him, this system pulls images from his flickr account and inserts them into posts.

So I need to find a theme that will be compatible with this.

Any help is appreciated!

Page rank has been really useless for a while now. In my line of business some advertisers still look at it but as a means of gauging where your site is in SE’s eyes.

One of my sites is 6 months old and still has PR0 but enjoys first page positions for hundreds of keywords, is socialized, has a good amount of quality back links and organically generates 1500 – 2000 views per day.

My business website just got PR3 and is 8 months old and is not as nearly as optimized as the one above. =)

Sometimes I feel like Google is just messing with us SEO guys on purpose. =)

The most important thing with the new algorithm (caffeine) is content. Content is king, the more unique, original and informative content you develop the higher you will be placed in SERPs. And consistency – if content is added daily you will not fail.

Also don’t waste your time on plain old backlinks. You want to start doing deep back linking with proper anchor texts from websites that are contextually relevant to the content (on your site) that you are linking to.

Always keep in mind the topics that you are writing about. Ask your self this… how many other people/websites are publishing similar content (uniqueness)? And – How informative and important is this content?

One of my clients has a celebrity gossip website and always complains about not getting to the top of page 1 in SERPs. I always ask him right back …. how many other sites are writing about Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift?

Well this is all just theory!

Hi,

Im not a designer nor am I a coder but I do internet marketing and love-love all the awesome work everyone does on themeforest.

Because I am in the business of generating website traffic and creating ways of converting that traffic into customers/members/clients, I am always on the look out for themes that have a unique and functional look.

When I say functional; I again refer to the internet marketing aspect of functionality:

- Is this design fresh? - Do the colors of this design stimulate my target demographic to take action? - Is there a clear call to action across all pages? - Is the positioning of the call to action above the fold? - Does the code provide for clear visible content areas and proper use of H tags? - How easily can forms be integrated into pages?

Now, I must say that some of the above are clearly available in a lot of the themes here on themeforest, but I have yet to find a theme that would cater to businesses that utilize pay-per-click services (Google AdWords) to drive traffic.

A “landing page”; something with a form on every page, something that can easily be integrated with all the tracking java scripts that Google wants you to use to track your campaigns, something that would provide a “Thank You” page with further call to action, registration paths and such.

A good example of an amazing website that would be every online marketers dream is www.constantcontac.com. Awesome design, wonderful call to action and just a really great effort on the overall concept.

I’m bringing this to your attention not because I am the one in need of this (which is semi-truth) but because this is a market that has money and is always looking for new designs. Over 90% of Google’s money comes from pay-per-click! Who pays this money?.. Businesses that market online and are ready to spend money on themes.

And, one more reason why this is a wonderful opportunity to increase your theme sales: Landing pages and microsites that are used for marketing purposes are constantly swapped out due to seasonal changes, holidays, market events and other factors, where regular websites tend to stick to their design for while. I have clients who swap out landing pages every month.

Looking forward to hearing what you guys think!
