Velvet theme is a simple, clear and modern WordPress premium theme for business websites and personal blogs. This theme is also suitable for portfolio, photography and any kind of websites.
Search Engine Optimization
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is our priority while designing themes. The Velvet Theme is a great example of that. We took care of the ideal code hierarchy thanks to the correct use of the h1 to h6 tags. As a result, the indexing of a website by the Internet search engines is a way better. H1 tag was used for the title of a website and articles, which will help the Internet users to find the contents of your website easily. Independently of a sidebar location, the source code is created in the way, which allows to index the website contents first and then the sidebar.
Unique support system
We’ve developed the unique support system. Every week we choose two options pointed by users and give you the opportunity to vote for one of them. After one week voting period we start developing the chosen option and give you an update in seven days. This means that buying our themes you have real control of what and when we do. Be prepared for an update available every week!
We’ve prepared our own Rainbow Slider with unique transitions and options.
