Google Does Not Rank Popular WordPress Themes Lower

By | October 13, 2021


Google’s John Mueller was asked if using WordPress themes that are used on many websites can have a negative impact in search rankings and SEO. John Mueller responded on Twitter, no, he said “popularity of a theme has no effect on SEO at all.”

Here are those tweets:

We do know that changing your WordPress theme can impact your rankings, that makes sense when you ask why. We also know Google does not give WordPress preferential treatment – but in terms of a theme being over used, – nah. Content can be overused and duplicated across the web and good luck trying to rank for the same content as several other publishers. But themes? Nah…
