I am looking to develop a new wordpress site and could really do with some help in identifying a suitable theme.
The website will be a relatively simple info site with the aim of driving traffic. Therefore I need a theme that is very SEO friendly and suitable for advertising.
I would also like a theme that will allow me to add plugins, specifically the yoast SEO plugin, XML-Sitemaps & PageNavi.
I have limited experience with WP and have never built a WP site from scratch so I need a simple theme for beginners. I've looked at Genesis and Thesis which look great but I think may be a bit too advanced, particularly when it comes to the frameworks, child themes etc.
In addition I would like something with great support (I'll need it), that's secure, regularly updated and that can support video. I'm happy to pay for the right theme.
I've also looked at Canvas & U-design which looked more simple, would these fit the bill?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
