SEO Design Solutions is proud to offer the first in a series of FREE SEO WordPress Themes – the optimized theme is amply named Small Business SEO.

Free WordPress Theme

Click Image and Download from WordPress at

The Small Business SEO theme features Blue and gray combined to create a professional-looking theme perfect for small businesses. The Small Business SEO Theme features Valid XHTML and CSS, RSS Ready-Feed, as well as includes a customizable masthead / header, supports rotating 125×125 sidebar ads, widgets, gravatars, and microformats.

The ad-ready sidebar has the ability to showcase up to ten 125 X 125 px advertisements that load from the url(s) of your choice. Each ad location is randomly selected (each time the site loads) to circumvent ad blindness from advertisements appearing in the same spot. Just one way to mix it up and reach your target audience with style with this professional WordPress Theme.

Not to mention, you can sculpt the way you follow or no-follow links in the sidebar, the log-in area or the blogroll for maximum SEO potential. All the features of a premium theme for FREE, from SEO Design Solutions.

If you liked this theme, then the SEO Basics WordPress Theme is also available for Download!

Built-in Settings Pages

When you upload and activate the Small Business SEO theme, it automatically adds 2 additional settings pages to the Design tab – no plugins required! A bonus normally found only on for-pay premium themes, these pages are labeled “SEO Settings” and “Ad Settings” – it’s like getting 2 plugins in addition to an already-fantastic theme.

Frontpage Meta Manager

Small Business SEO allows you to control the SERP appearance of your frontpage by specifying its <title> tag and <meta> description/keyword tags from the “SEO Settings” page.

Nofollow Settings

Under the “SEO Settings” page, you can find checkboxes for applying the nofollow attribute to the following 3 locations of commonly-undesired PageRank leakage:

  • The registration/login links
  • Blogroll links
  • Links to date-based archives

Nofollow is optional for the above 3 link types, and can be enabled/disabled at will.

Small Business SEO also adds nofollow to comment permalinks – further decreasing unnecessary page links – without any PHP processing overhead.

Rotating Ad Manager

Small Business SEO includes an easy-to-use manager for 125×125 sidebar ads, which are popular on modern ad-driven blogs.

Small Business SEO can store data for up to 10 ads; you decide how many are shown at a time. Every time a page on your blog is loaded, Small Business SEO will randomly pick ads in shuffled order (to help decrease visitor ad blindness).

Customization Support

Small Business SEO is based on the powerful Sandbox framework. Sandbox’s advanced CSS selectors allow for high levels of user customization. If those who aren’t familiar with CSS/PHP programming, SEO Design Solutions also provides Small Business SEO customization services for its SEO clients.

Built-in Dropdown Menus

Small Business SEO uses your WordPress page hierarchy to construct drop-down navigation menus using a stylish black-and-gray palette.

In addition, the menu degrades properly when CSS display is disabled, in order to ensure that vision-impaired visitors to your blog can still utilize the Small Business SEO navigation menu.

Modern WordPress Feature Support

Small Business SEO goes above and beyond antiquated WordPress themes by providing support for modern WordPress functionality like gravatars and widgets, to ensure you can take full advantage of those features.

Widget Title Fixer

Small Business SEO seamlessly modifies default widget behavior so that titles are presented in <div> tags instead of the typical header tags, so as to avoid giving undesired SEO weight to irrelevant words like “Archives” and “Categories.”

Internationalization Support

Since Small Business SEO is based on Sandbox, you can use Sandbox translation files to translate the theme to your own language. WordPress’s internationalization features are also utilized for textual strings specific to Small Business SEO.

Microformat Support

Thanks to its foundation on Sandbox, Small Business SEO supports microformats such as hCard, hAtom, and XOXO, which are part of the Semantic Web paradigm that has oft been heralded as “Web 3.0.”

Valid XHTML and CSS

Last but not least, Small Business SEO passes World Wide Web Consortium tests for proper XHTML and CSS formation, to help ensure proper parsing for search engines and visitor browsers alike.

  4. Hi Kev:

    All is well, been working on software, SEO plug ins, WordPress Themes and SEO Tools for public consumption with our lead developer.

    The concept behind that theme was Microsoft meets Google with the blue and gray palette.

    Hope all is well with you, I haven’t had as much time to write as much, but should be cranking out a few good articles a week from this point, since we are finished with this phase.

    Take care.

    Great theme. Thanks! Keep up the good work!

  10. I have applied this theme and filled all the 4 ad boxes info by going to settings on my localhost installation. It worked fine.

    I then moved the files and database to another computer (again on localhost). Everything is okay except that when I visit wp-admin/themes.php?page=adsettings, it shows “Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-content\themes\small-business-seo\functions.php on line 373” under “Image URL” for the first row.

    Any idea how I can fix that?

  21. Out of dozens of themes, both paid-for and free I think your SEO business theme is the one I want to use. It looks great and I appreciate the extent you have gone to with extra SEO functions.
    I am wondering though why there is no HOME page in the theme. As I navigate to other pages I can not get back to the home page because there isn’t one. How do I add a HOME page to this theme? Other than making a new page I mean. Thanks
