A lot of WordPress users are looking for a SEO Optimized theme, not to be confused with SEO friendly theme.
Most of the time, SEO friendly certainly refers to SE friendly (Search Engine friendly) and that can be just done by activating the WordPress URL Friendly to get Permalinks. So SEO friendly could be named more precisely as SE Friendly.
SEO Optimized theme is something else as that kind of theme has to take into account a set of SEO rules to follow in the purpose of rank higher in search engine than if you don't follow such SEO rules.
As said in other WordPress topic, and I'll recap there, there's just a couple of simple SEO rules that can be easily follow to be better ranked.
To list some of the SEO rules that are the easiest to implement, you have:
1)What has to be in the HTML page content
- title with the keyword set
- meta content keyword with the keyword set
- meta content description with the keyword set
- H1 with the keyword set as the first item that will be seen by SE
- H2 with the keyword set as the second item
- P with the keyword set in the 1st sentense of the text content
- P with the keyword set at the middle of the text content
- P with the keyword set in the last of the text content
- Complemented by a bold or i, an emphasing html tag
2) What has to be at the level of your URL
- Having the keyword set in the domain name or the subdomain
- Having the keyword set as part of the folder just under the hostname
- Having the keyword set as part of the filename
3) What other things more difficult to implement
There're other SEO stuffs too that are more link to how your inter-links your web sites to others, plus the level of your PR, link popularity and link reputation
So it means that SEO rules listed in point 1 are quite easy to follow. It just takes some time if you need to spend doing that on each page and rebuild a theme by yourself. So to avoid losing your time and may be not implementing so well, it's something wiser to use a WordPress theme that already take into account all those basic SEO rules. That's the reason a SEO Optimized wordpress theme is a must have in this case.
