A lot of businesses create sites simply because they feel like they have to, but that’s missing the point. A website can be your most valuable branding and marketing asset.
The themes curated here have been designed especially for psychologists and counselors, and they come with a relevant set of business tools included. You can let visitors schedule appointments from your site and even collect payments using eCommerce functionality.
If you’re not excited to create your site yet, I hope these WordPress themes can change that!
Only up-to-date WordPress themes that have been maintained by their developers have been selected to be featured in this collection. In addition, every theme included here is completely responsive so they look amazing on mobile devices like tablets and smartphones.
Cloe Brooks is a well-balanced theme for psychologists that comes with a lot of great business features.
This therapist WordPress theme has a soft color palette and spacious design that gives it a calming energy. The “sticky” menu keeps the navigation present at all times which makes navigation easy. Not to mention, it’s just as beautiful and easy to use on mobile devices.
There are some pretty impressive customization options and tools built into this premium theme. For instance, you can include a gorgeous pricing table to let prospects know how much sessions cost and they can even complete purchases directly on your site thanks to the WooCommerce integration. Another cool feature is the bbPress integration which allows you to add a discussion forum.
The most practical feature is the appointment calendar. Visitors can click the “Make an appointment” button highlighted in the header and it will take them to a visual calendar where they can select a date, find an available timeslot, and book a session all on their own.
MentalPress makes great use of space, color, and composition to create a design that is attractive and user-friendly. It would work well for any practicing therapist, psychologist, or counselor.
What I like most about this theme is the ease of navigation and clarity of the design. It’s very easy to get around the site and find whatever you’re looking for. With the address and contact info in the header, visitors will have no trouble getting in touch and this also makes for a more trustworthy website.
ProteusThemes always does a good job of creating themes that serve business needs. You’ll see numerous call-to-actions throughout the MentalPress live demo encouraging visitors to get in touch to schedule a session. While you could run an active blog and publish dozens of pages, this theme works equally well for small sites that can be put together quickly.
If you want a theme with a clean and bold style, you’ll love Counselor. The layouts are spacious and it uses beautiful sans-serif fonts throughout.
The Counselor theme comes powered by TemplateMonster’s own page builder. There are 25+ content modules that can be dragged-and-dropped into place to create custom layouts for any page. You can see this system in practice in the live demo website. Many of the modules available have creative designs that will help your site look dynamic and stand out.
Counselor has templates for publishing pages about your services and lets visitors schedule appointments via online forms. You can also add responsive image galleries with photographs of your staff and around the office. Add in a handful of other customization tools like custom fonts and colors and Counselor is a very customizable theme.
Psychiatrist has an awesome design for featuring your services and value proposition. While a lot of modern themes strike a minimalist style, Psychiatrist manages to fit a little more content onto the screen without feeling cluttered or out of date.
On the homepage (and screenshot above), you can see the innovative slider design. The slider is powered by Revolution Slider which is one of the most advanced slider plugins ever made. You’ll have full control over the images, text, layout, and even the animations of the slides on your site.
The Psychiatrist theme also has WooCommerce compatibility which allows you to open an eCommerce store on your site. In fact, you can also use it to sell counseling sessions directly from your site. Psychologists with growing businesses and limited time will find this feature helpful for making their client signup process smoother.
Psychiatrist is a pretty simple and attractive theme for building a website for psychologists. It’s powered by a page builder and in the demo site, you can see many of these content blocks being used.
While most of the themes here have some sort of appointment booking feature, I think Psychiatrist does it best. The special appointment form is well-designed and makes it easy for visitors to select a precise time to schedule their session. Psychiatrist also has a huge amount of customization options.
There are multiple styles for listing doctors including a search filter, a store locator, multiple contact page layouts, and tons more customizability provided by the bundled page builder plugin. That means you can create your own custom page layouts by simply dragging and dropping content modules into place.
Cloe Brooks gets the top recommendation because it is the complete package for a psychiatrist. It has practical business features, a user-friendly design, and a friendly, professional aesthetic.
Another theme with excellent tools for growing business is the MentalPress template. If you like the style of that theme, you’ll probably like the Psychiatrist theme by Anps too.
For a simpler site with plenty of bold colors and white space, you can’t beat Counselor. Lastly, the Psychiatrist theme by designthemes is an all-around solid choice for making a modern service website.
Juliet is a visual blogging theme. With an emphasis on media and a feminine flair, Juliet is a great fit for Instagrammers, bloggers, and any popular niche on Pinterest. It even has built-in Pinterest sharing buttons for every post.
Juliet includes multiple blog layouts and layouts for a WooCommerce store. Yup, this theme also integrates with the eCommerce plugin making monetization easy. Furthermore, this stylish theme pays particular attention to affiliate marketing. Designated affiliate links are promoted on the site making monetization more efficient.
Glam Pro is a cute and feminine WordPress blog theme. This theme makes great use of whitespace and has a gentle and calming design.
Glam Pro is an excellent choice for bloggers, but it also works well for online stores. That’s because it has full integration with WooCommerce. You can sell your products or set up drop shipping to sell 3rd party products.
Glam Pro comes with the Genesis Framework, which means it’s built with clean and fast code. The theme customizer lets you modify visual elements like colors and background images. Page templates, widget areas, and a customizable header give you greater control over your content.
Aster is a beautiful and feminine theme for photographers. It features full-screen images and expansive visual sliders.
As a photography theme, Aster is ideal for showcasing photographs. Even more useful are the templates for advertising your services and the private client photo galleries.
In addition to showing off your work and getting clients, you can run a blog to publish a steady stream of fresh content. There are two different layouts available for the blog. Aster also has custom colors, background images, and built-in image proofing.
Kloé is a crisp theme for fashion, lifestyle blogging, and business. It makes great use of typography and maintains a very sophisticated look throughout.
The Kloé theme includes 14 different homepage designs which make it hugely customizable. You also get many layouts for the blog and post pages. If you’re more interested in sharing images, Kloé also includes special portfolio layouts.
Kloé fits most niches well due to its templates, portfolio pages, and WooCommerce integration.
Zarja is a feminine blog theme with a creative design. Rather than a slider, the homepage features a large header and bio section. It’s an excellent layout for promoting your personal brand.
Blog posts in this theme are quite beautiful thanks to a strong use of typography and color. Zarja is a blogging theme, so it doesn’t have portfolios and eCommerce support like other themes listed here. However, that does mean it comes with a lower price tag.
Zarja includes customizable colors, Instagram integration, five homepage variations, and seven post templates. It’s a flexible and attractive theme for bloggers.
Tribe is a theme made for female coaches. It’s designed to generate more leads, sell products and services, and do it all with a stylish brand.
The homepage of Tribe includes a customizable header section, testimonials, and a lead collection form. With WooCommerce integration, you can advertise and sell courses straight from your site.
Besides the great aesthetic, Tribe has a host of design options available. Switch up the blog with any of 4 layouts, swap sidebar positions, and customize your color scheme. Tribe has the perfect blend of style and flexibility to tweak the site to your needs.
The Voux is a gorgeous WordPress theme for magazines. Its minimalist style makes it especially well-suited for fashion, food, and travel.
If you have a team of writers or are looking to publish content frequently, The Voux is a prime choice of theme. The homepage features multiple content areas, and article pages have many templates available.
In addition to the templates and content areas, The Voux also includes mega menus. Add to that four unique header styles and social buttons, and this is one adaptable theme. Despite all that, getting starting with The Voux is easy thanks to its pre-made demos.
Josephine is a minimalist theme with a unique design. It features a wide carousel slider to show off your top posts followed by a more traditional blog layout. The clean and crisp vibe of Josephine makes it calming to read and browse.
While the layout featured in the demo (and screenshot) is beautiful, there are many other layouts in Josephine. It comes with the Live Composer plugin which lets you rebuild the homepage how you want. Drag-and-drop content sections into new places to create a new design.
As a responsive theme, Josephine looks great on phones and tablets too.
Glamour is a clean magazine WP theme. It has a minimalist design with splashes of color for accents. With a huge variety of content areas, you have full control over publishing with this theme.
When it comes to monetizing, Glamour has got your back. This theme has WooCommerce support and Adsense optimization. That means you can place profitable ads in key locations throughout your site.
Typical to themes by MyThemeShop, Glamour is extremely customizable. There are six homepage layouts and three distinct post layouts. You can customize fonts, add sliders, and include special shortcodes to display unique content.
Julia is a bold and stylish theme with a feminine flair. This theme can be used for any blogging niche but is particularly well-suited for food blogs.
This theme has a premium feel thanks to the excellent typography and balance with visual media. It doesn’t have the look and feel of your average WordPress theme. You’ll have all the layouts you need, plus a ton of customization options to make the theme your own.
Julia lets you publish regular posts and recipe posts. New recipes are automatically added to the “Recipe Index” where visitors can quickly search for anything they want. The homepage layout can be modified with a drag-and-drop system, you can adjust fonts and colors easily without code, and Julia even includes built-in ad spots for simple monetization.
I hope you enjoyed this list of the best feminine themes. If picking a theme is tough, try making a checklist of the features you need. Find a theme that checks off all those boxes in addition to having a great aesthetic.
Want to launch a new site for your boutique store?
We’ve collected a variety of WordPress themes for online boutique shops. Not only will you be able to promote a physical location, you can also sell your products from your site with an eCommerce store.
These themes cover an array of boutique niches from flower to fashion, so make sure to check them all out and find which one is best for you. Many of them are so customizable that they could be used for a variety of niches.
The Boutique theme is made for fashion eCommerce stores. It’s incredibly customizable and comes with more than 20 pre-made homepages to pick from.
Boutique comes bundled with $51 worth of premium plugins including Visual Composer and Slider Revolution. These plugins are instrumental in creating the flexibility of this fashion theme. They allow you to make new page layouts from distinct content modules and design custom sliders.
Boutique goes above and beyond with the customization features. Beyond the page building with Visual Composer, the header and footer have a huge amount of layouts available. There are also lots of pre-made layouts for product archives and individual product pages. Overall, it’s an attractive theme that’s earned dozens of five-star reviews thanks to its feature set.
Want something a little more colorful and eccentric for your site? Check out the Lush Boutique theme.
This premium boutique theme has a fun and friendly style. The diverse color palette makes the products jump off the page, and the layout is interesting and attention-getting. Scrolling through the demo site, you’ll see that there are tons of different components you can use to put together an awesome homepage using the page builder included.
Lush Boutique integrates with WooCommerce for all of its eCommerce capabilities. The integration itself is pretty impressive. There are lots of layout options specifically for the product and store pages, and every feature in WooCommerce works smoothly with this theme.
Olins is a bit different from the other themes listed here in that it’s made for design studios and boutique service providers. The screenshot above features an example wedding photography website, but Olins can be adapted for many different purposes.
The Olins theme does not have eCommerce integration, so it won’t be a good choice for an online store. However, it does have a lot of beautiful portfolio galleries for featuring your work. Due to the gallery options available and other design choices made by the Olins developers, you’ll find that it’s a better choice for any boutique service providers.
Olins has positive reviews on TemplateMonster, so people are enjoying putting it to use. As a TemplateMonster theme, there are quite a few upgrades available with your purchase. You can get hosting, additional plugins, and even have the TM team install and prepare the theme on your site for you.
Le Truffé has a sophisticated look thanks to its carefully designed composition and bold serif fonts. The color palette is gentle and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to show off high-resolution photographs of your products.
This theme, of course, does not need to be used for a chocolate shop. If you like the aesthetic and features included, it can easily be adapted for a fashion shop or other niches outside the food industry. It’s mainly designed for an eCommerce store with a small number of premium products.
The Le Truffé nails the boutique style and makes every product featured feel unique. There are some truly gorgeous product pages and you’ll have to browse the demo site to see what I’m talking about. You’ll also find all the customization options you need to adapt this site to the style and layout that’s best for your boutique.
Flower Shop is an elegant boutique eCommerce store theme. It has a wonderful balance of typography and graphics to create a beautiful style.
The homepage slider is highly customizable thanks to the two premium slider plugins that come bundled with this theme. There are multiple demo sites provided by CMS Masters, so you’ll need to check each of them out to see all the cool slide design variations available. That goes for the rest of the site’s composition too.
The page builder plugin that comes with Flower Shop allows you to make your own custom templates. That’s how each page in the demos have been made. While this theme is very obviously marketed for boutique flower stores, you can sell any kind of products you want with this theme. There are tons of layouts available and the store itself is beautiful and adaptable.
The appropriately named Boutique theme is probably what you’re looking for. It has a light style that will look great with fashion sites in particular. For fashion sites, Lush Boutique is another excellent alternative.
If you are a boutique service provider, you’ll prefer the Olins theme over other templates here.
While Le Truffé and Flower Shop are marketed for very specific industries, both have them are elegant and flexible. You could use them for any boutique shop that has a small variety of premium products.
Your site can be a hub for conversation and engagement. All you need are the tools to build a forum and design to cultivate that participation.
In this list, you’ll find the best WordPress themes for creating a forum. They integrate with robust forum plugins that let members register, share on the forums, message each other directly, and much more.
Keep reading now to find the top themes for starting a forum with WordPress.
Buddy is a forum and community theme with a beautiful and simple aesthetic. The friendly design makes it easy to see the latest activity on the site, browse the forums, and signup to join the conversation.
The Buddy theme integrates with bbPress for forum creation and BuddyPress for additional community features. These features include private messaging, activity feeds, and robust user profile pages.
Although a lot of themes integrate with bbPress for forums, they tend to get the design wrong. What I love about Buddy is how well it balances all the content. The forums are nice and wide with plenty of space for posts, but with a sidebar available where you can advertise and post site news. User profile pages have a lot of content, but it’s managed well and easy to navigate.
The Buddy theme was first launched in 2012 (!) and was last update three days before writing this. A theme that’s been consistently updated for that many years is often much more reliable and less buggy than your average theme.
Kleo is a ridiculously customizable and feature-filled theme for communities and forums.
If you want a simple theme to setup a forum, Buddy is a great choice. If you want to add a forum and community elements as one part of your site, Kleo might be right for you. You can use the Kleo theme to run an active blog, sell products, or even offer training courses all while hosting popular forums. You’ll need to check out the live demos to see how diverse the uses for this forum theme are.
The demo importer makes Kleo much easier to setup. You can pick a demo site that looks most like the site you want to create, and then import a single xml file to recreate it. Kleo comes with tons of color and layout options, plus the Visual Composer plugin for drag-and-drop page building.
Klein is a forum theme with a “flat” design and plenty of functionality.
First things first, the integration with bbPress for the forums is solid. The threads are easy to browse and replies are very readable. The member profiles are also quite nice with all the native BuddyPress features included.
Klein has a great feature set with drag-and-drop page building, eight color schemes, layout options, and integration with quite a few plugins including WooCommerce for selling products.
Vilan is a modern and stylish WordPress theme for forums. Complete with bbPress compatibility, custom colors, and multiple layout modes, Vilan is a theme you can customize extensively.
The Vilan forum theme features a fullscreen slider with the use of Slider Revolution and comes with Visual Composer for building unique page templates. If that’s not enough, you can also integrate a store with the use of WooCommerce.
QAEngine is a highly robust theme for creating a Q&A site. This beautifully designed theme lets users ask and answers questions, vote on replies, and collect badges for participation.
As a community theme, QAEngine excels by making it easy and intuitive to find and answer questions. Give expert users special privileges, such as question editing and voting to further encourage engagement.
If you’re looking for an easy way to monetize your site, QAEngine lets you charge users to push their question to the top of the list and integrates with major payment processors like PayPal and Stripe.
The CommunityJunction WordPress forum theme integrates with bbPress and BuddyPress. Let users communicate over the message board, send private messages, and share their activity.
Integration with WooCommerce means you can sell digital or physical goods from your site too. This theme is excellent for getting members engaged in groups around niches and specific discussion topics.
Thrive is a feature-rich community WordPress theme. With bbPress integration, Thrive makes it easy to create beautiful and responsive forums.
This theme also has BuddyPress integration allowing members to message each other, publish activity feeds, and receive live notifications. Thrive is bundled with Slider Revolution and Visual Composer for building responsive sliders and custom page layouts.
OneCommunity has both BuddyPress and bbPress integration, so members can post on the forum and share their activity on the site. It’s well-designed for creating discussion and engagement.
OneCommunity also comes with Advanced Ajax Search. This means members can get instant results as they search the forums. Publish a blog and create member groups to keep the engagement going beyond the forums.
While Answers is not a typical forum theme, it’s an excellent choice for sparking discussion on your site. The question-and-answer format is ideal for helping your community learn about various topics.
Since Answers is search engine optimized, you can grow your traffic with user-generated content on autopilot. As in Yahoo Answers and Stack Overflow, users can vote on replies, and the “asker” can select the best answer.
Food delivery startups are all the rage these days.
Services like GrubHub, Blue Apron, and InstaCart are changing the way we eat and shop for food. Get in on the action with one of these feature-packed food themes for WordPress.
We’ve included a variety of food delivery themes in this list. Their functionality subtlely varies from one to the next, so make sure to pick out the one that will fit your business model best.
Food delivery service WordPress themes
All of the WP themes included in this list are either new releases or have been recently updated. This ensures their compatibility with the newest version of WordPress. In addition, they’re all completely responsive which means they look great on laptops and mobile devices too.
Madang is an exceptional theme thanks to its premium design quality and robust functionality. It’s designed to create websites for subscription services sort of like Blue Apron.
With Madang, visitors can browse your selection of meals based on their dietary preferences. You could quickly ship cooked meals or send customers the ingredients to prepare the meal themselves. In fact, Madang has the features needed support many different food business models.
One really cool feature in this theme is the integrated nutrition info. You can include the calories and macro-nutrients for each dish as well as the complete nutrition info label. There are lots of layouts, search filters, and other options that make Madang highly customizable. It’s got more great features too like a calorie calculator, meal plans, and promotional sales pages.
The Fooddy 24/7 WordPress theme is designed to be a complete food delivery system. Visitors can browse restaurants and place orders directly from the website. All eCommerce functionality is handled by the popular WooCommerce plugin.
While this theme includes all the ordering features you need, it would also work great with a companion app. You could promote your app from the website to get more mobile users, although Fooddy 24/7 is fully responsive so it works fine on smartphones as-is.
If you’re planning on promoting your food service with content marketing, you’ll love all the blog options available in this responsive theme. There are multiple layouts for the blog and post, custom animations to choose from, and built-in social sharing buttons. Fooddy 24/7 also works with WPBakery for building new page templates with the drag-and-drop editor.
Fooxy is a WordPress theme built for restaurants that also provide delivery services. Rather than requiring visitors to call, they can actually browse your menu online and add items to their cart. Then they can checkout and order their food all without leaving your site.
While Fooxy isn’t designed for websites that will strictly focus on food delivery, it will work great for pizza deliveries and similar businesses. The design is simple and easy to browse especially the menu which has a very clear and user-friendly layout.
This premium food theme doesn’t have an extraordinary amount of features, but that makes it quick to setup. After installation, you can adjust a few key customization options and have the site looking complete. Some of these customization options include fonts, social options, and various galleries. All of the eCommerce functionality is powered by an integration with the popular Ecwid shopping cart solution.
Food Drop is unique in that it is designed to promote an app made for food delivery services. It doesn’t have the food delivery functionality built-in, but rather is used to sell your app that does.
This premium food theme has a fun and playful style. The handwritten fonts and frequent use of color through each page contribute to this friendly aesthetic. With full control over these design aspects, Food Drop is a flexible theme that would work nicely for a subscription service or any kind of online food ordering business.
One of the coolest features of this theme is the one-click demo importer. You can quickly make a copy of the demo site featured in the screenshot above which is pretty awesome. It’s way easier to customize starting from a fully-customized demo than setting up the site from scratch. On top of that, every aspect of the site is customizable from the page layouts to the header and footer styles.
Matur is designed for a service like GrubHub or GoPuff. First and foremost, it functions like a restaurant directory. You can add restaurants yourself and allow others to signup and submit their own establishments for review. Visitors can then find restaurants near them and order dishes.
On the homepage featured in the screenshot above, you can see how Matur prompts visitors to enter a restaurant and location. It will then present a list of relevant restaurants to choose from. They can browse the dishes and review photographs, descriptions, and reviews for the restaurant.
The ordering functionality is handled by WooCommerce which is a great choice because it’s currently the most popular eCommerce solution on the web. Matur also includes a robust mix of customization features. You can use the bundled page builder to create custom page templates, change your fonts and font sizes, and even design your own image sliders.
Madang gets the top pick because of its gorgeous design and huge customizability. It’s best suited for a subscription service like Blue Apron.
Both Fooddy 24/7 and Matur take an approach similar to GrubHub. They are essentially restaurant databases that help visitors search for their favorite cuisine and order through the site.
If you are looking for a theme for a single restaurant with online ordering, Fooxy will be your best option.
Lastly, Food Drop doesn’t facilitate any ordering or delivery on its own. Instead, it’s been designed to promote your app that does. If you just need a solid marketing website for your food delivery service, it will be an excellent choice.
If your organization wants to compete, you’ll need to perform well in all marketing channels. In order to compete online, that means having an excellent website.
The WordPress themes for solar energy businesses selected here are the cream of the crop. They have beautiful designs, robust features, and a flexibility that makes them easy to customize according to any brand guidelines.
Solar energy WordPress themes
We’ve only included themes here that are mobile-friendly and fully responsive. The themes in this collection are also new or recently updated to ensure their compatibility with the latest versions of WordPress.
The premium Energy theme has a dark and crisp style that looks great on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you want to create a professional website for your solar energy or environmental organization, this may the theme for you.
Some themes in this collection have a friendlier style and would work well for B2C businesses. Due to the more corporate aesthetic of Energy, it would be a great choice for a B2B solar energy company. Considering it comes with a page builder, you can create each page to perfectly match the goals the brand of the organization.
Energy includes a wide variety of customization options for things like the fonts and colors. It also has full WooCommerce support which is great if you want to sell products or services on your site. Sure, you can create a traditional eCommerce store with WooCommerce, but it can also be used to process payments for services too. If you’re a designer, you’ll appreciate that Energy also comes with its PSD files which is less common these days.
Solar Zone is a theme for environmental agencies and solar energy corporations. While the ideas it helps promote are quite serious, this theme takes on a friendly and approachable aesthetic.
The soft blue and green color palette mixed with the curved Nunito font give Solar Zone a very inviting look. For this reason, it may be best used for a consumer-facing organization to create a non-intimidating brand.
You can see the slider in the screenshot has a pretty novel layout and that’s thanks to the Slider Revolution plugin that comes bundled with Solar Zone. It may be the most advanced image slider plugin ever made for WordPress and gives you a massive amount of control over slide designs. This premium solar energy theme also comes bundled with the Visual Composer page builder plugin for creating custom page designs using a drag-and-drop system.
If you want a clean design to teach visitors about solar energy and the services your company provides, Helilar will be a great choice.
This WordPress theme is highly flexible and includes tons of beautiful layouts. You can easily switch between layouts and create entirely custom page templates using TemplateMonster’s drag-and-drop page builder. There are dozens of “content modules” available which you can use when constructing your own pages.
If you browse through the “Service” and “Project” pages in the Helilar demo site, you’ll find examples of how you can structure your pages. You can add image galleries to show off work for previous clients and easily include different for text layouts too. Overall, it’s a quality theme that will work well for a solar energy organization.
The Good Energy theme has a bright and colorful style that makes each element jump off the page. The clean design makes it really easy to browse the site and find whatever info you’re looking for.
Like most of the other themes included here, Good Energy works with a page builder for making different templates. However, some of the content modules included are more creative and stylish than your average blocks. The demo site does a great job of showing off some of these elements.
Most of the features included in Good Energy are really easy to use. You’ll have no trouble switching between different layouts and header designs. This solar energy theme also has a one-click demo data installer that you can use to immediately create your site with the same style and content of the demo website.
The Go Solar WordPress theme has a flexible design that will work well for any kind of environmentally conscious company. It could be used for a scientific research community, recycling businesses, or any other type of renewable energy organization.
The style of this theme is pretty simple. You can see from the demo site how Go Solar relies on a page builder plugin to create its layouts. Each section is a separate content module that you can drag-and-drop into place. Of course, every character of text and image is completely customizable and up to you to define.
If you have an international audience, you’ll appreciate that Go Solar is WPML compatible and supports right-to-left languages. All of the text in the theme can be translated into any language, and with WPML, visitors can change between any language you support.
For a solar energy company selling products and installation services to other businesses, Energy is likely the best choice. On the contrary, Solar Zone is a great fit for any B2C solar companies.
The remaining three themes have flexible styles and could work well for any type of environmental organization. Since the features they include are so similar and the designs are so adaptable, it makes sense to select your favorite based on the aesthetics of the template, and I’ll leave that up to you
ListingPro is a premium WordPress theme with a great design and all the features you’d expect from a directory site. It’s the most popular new directory theme on Themeforest and has a full five-star rating which is quite uncommon.
What sets ListingPro apart is that it includes everything you need without requiring additional plugins to be installed. This is pretty impressive considering the massive amount of functionality included to make a Yelp-like directory site.
The newest version of ListingPro brings some exciting new features like the auto-location discovery that updates the site’s results based on the visitor’s location. In addition, you can now charge members a one-time listing fee or a recurring monthly subscription to list a business on your website. There are so many more amazing features too like search suggestions, advanced filtering options, the complete review system – you’ll need to check out ListingPro yourself to see everything it can do.
It’s clear the team at Pixelgrade knows what they’re doing. Listable is a truly professional quality theme for building a directory site.
Listable is beautiful and extremely user-friendly. In fact, Listable has been through UX testing via usertesting.com to learn how visitors interact with it and improve the design. As you browse around the live demo, it’s easy to picture this theme being used on your site.
Listable has a great mix of features. It has all the directory-specific functionality you need like one-time and subscription listing payments (via WooCommerce), user reviews, and advanced search with filtering. Listable also comes with classic site customization options like custom colors, hundreds of fonts to choose from, and a simple drag-and-drop page builder for the homepage and listing pages.
Listings is a multipurpose directory theme. It can be used as a directory portal for any niche from cars to real estate.
Listings has numerous beautiful templates for displaying businesses, users, and locations. With careful attention to detail, Templatic has made this theme just as friendly and fun to use on mobile devices as laptops.
Listify is an impressive directory theme. It is very customizable, clean, and easy-to-use.
Listify’s design is simpler than ListingPro, and I find it easier to use and navigate. There is more emphasis on filters on the category pages, and the location pages are better organized.
While Listify includes fewer features than ListingPro, it still comes packed with site building tools. There’s the drag-and-drop builder for creating a custom homepage, seven ways to monetize the site (including subscriptions), and a built-in review system.
While some themes on this list handle events well, Eventum is designed for the sole purpose of listing events.
The Eventum WordPress directory theme is ideal for a site promoting events like conferences, festivals, and sporting events. Visitors can confirm attendance, see who else is going, and get event reminders.
The appropriately named Directory theme is designed to fit any niche. Use it to list cars, houses, restaurants, hotels, and anything else you can think of.
This mobile-friendly WordPress theme has templates for listings, search results, advertisements, and more. With a variety of payment options, monetizing the site is easy regardless of your business model.
Classifieds is a no frills directory and classified ads theme. Forget about the huge image sliders. Classifieds gets visitors straight into the products and categories, so they can find what they’re looking for.
With filtering options in the sidebar, Classifieds makes it easy to find relevant ads amidst thousands of listings. Like other themes by Templatic, members can sign up and add listings, and you can charge them for it.
DirectoryEngine is a robust and modern business directory theme. It’s highly customizable and search engine optimized to increase traffic.
Perhaps most importantly, DirectoryEngine assists your profitability. Offer multiple pricing plans and sell featured listings for submissions. DirectoryEngine works with major payment processors like PayPal, Stripe, SagePay, and more.
DiningEngine is the perfect theme for listing restaurants in a directory. With an emphasis on location, this WP theme makes finding nearby eateries simple.
Perhaps the best part of this theme is how polished adding a listing is. Members are guided through four quick steps that get them to purchase a listing on the site. You’ll have no problem attracting visitors and business alike with DiningEngine’s detailed rating system and mobile-friendly layout.
The first thing you’ll notice in HotelEngine is the huge fullscreen image slider and reservation search bar. This unique approach lets visitors set their check-in and check-out dates, the guest count, and the number of rooms to begin their search.
Unlike other themes listed here, HotelEngine is best used for only a handful listings. They can be your own properties or 3rd party properties you promote, but visitors cannot register and list their own.
Classifieds is a simple classified listings site where visitors can find goods and pay to list their own (similar to Craigslist). You can allow free ads, charge based on the length of time the ad is listed, and even charge for packages of multiple ads.
This theme comes with the standard customization controls and frontend editor from EngineThemes.
In this guide, you’ll learn a simple and repeatable process to find keywords to target with new blog posts. By the end, you’ll have hundreds of new post ideas.
Better yet, you’ll get more traffic from these posts than the other ones you publish and you’ll understand why soon.
Let’s get to it then!
What are keywords?
A keyword, or keyword phrase, is essentially a query someone would search for in Google.
For instance, imagine an excited new puppy owner who isn’t sure how to potty train their new pet. They might search in Google for “how to potty train a puppy.” That’s a keyword.
The idea is that you would write a blog post about that exact same subject and then you’d have a chance to show up in Google when people search for it.
Now, if you’re a dog trainer then you can probably use your intuition to come up with that same post idea. Here’s where the “research” part comes in.
The advantages of keyword research
With keyword research, you can figure out:
How many people are searching for each topic
How hard it will be to rank in Google for each keyword
You can then prioritize keywords with more search volume and less competition to get more traffic from each post you publish.
On top of that, the keywords you discover will spark your imagination and help you come up with tons of new posts. And let’s be honest, one of the hardest parts of running a blog is consistently coming up with new post ideas.
Where does the traffic come from?
The big idea here is that you’ll find a bunch of keywords and then write one blog post for each keyword you find. The post will then have a chance to rank in Google when people search for that keyword.
Don’t stress about your keyword rankings
Some webmasters really stress about where they rank, but ultimately it’s not a deal breaker if you don’t rank well for your chosen keywords. You can always improve your rankings later and you’ll still rank for other variations of the keywords you target.
Keep an eye on your analytics and over time I promise that the posts you publish based on keywords will yield more search engine traffic than the ones that aren’t optimized.
The keyword research process
You can complete this entire project at once, but I suggest breaking it up into pieces. In one sitting, you can collect a few dozen new keywords to target.
By the end of your keyword research, you’ll have a database of hundreds of traffic-getting post ideas to write about. You can always repeat this process or delve deeper into your research to expand your database further and find even more post topics.
Start with a seed
The first step is to start with a “seed” keyword. This will be a term that basically describes the niche you’re in. Some examples:
Arts & crafts
We’re going to take the seed keyword and use a tool to generate related words/phrases that people search for in Google.
Enter your seed keyword into KWFinder and you’ll get up to 200 related terms including their search volume and ranking difficulty scores.
Here are the results I get back for “dog training.”
Click for the full-size image
Don’t worry about the search volume and difficulty scores yet.
Browse through the list of results you get and check off any term that is different from the rest. Think about what the person Googling that term is looking for. Someone searching for “dog training classes” is probably looking for the same thing as “dog training school” so you wouldn’t need to check them both. However, “puppy training classes” is differentiated enough that I would check it off too.
Save your keywords
Once you’ve made it through your 200 related terms, click the Add to list button at the bottom of KWFinder to save your selected keywords.
In the popup, click the Create new list option.
Then name and save the list.
Now you have a collection of the most popular topics people are searching for in your niche.
This keyword list is an awesome piece of market research, and next, we’re going to use it to get even deeper insights and find keywords to target with your posts.
Find your post keywords
This is where most webmasters set themselves up for failure.
They get a list of keywords like the one you have now and start blogging about them. While it would be awesome to write a blog post about “dog agility training” and rank #1 in Google, it’s just not going to happen.
If you take a look at the sites that are ranking for any of the keywords in your list, you’ll likely find that they’re very authoritative and well-established.
It may be possible to outrank these sites eventually using a cornerstone page strategy, but it’s going to take a long time and that’s not what we’re focusing on here.
Instead, we’re going to dig deeper to find more specific keywords to target. They’ll have lower competition and will be easier to write about.
Pro tip: analyze the competition
Whenever you have a keyword selected in KWFinder, you can click the Analyze SERP button (SERP = search engine results page) at the bottom, and get a more detailed competitive analysis.
Pro tip: use your new keyword list to create your category structure
I found 45 distinct keywords from the initial set of 200 terms that KWFinder returned for “dog training.” Most of those keywords can be grouped into one of the following categories:
Other dog supplies
If I had a dog training website, I would consider making these into my five post categories since these are the topics people are most interested in.
Build your blog post keyword database
You used a seed keyword to gather a set of keywords that encompass the most popular topics in your niche. Next, you’ll create a second list with all the keywords that you’ll actually write your posts about.
This is a three-step process that you can repeat for every keyword in your existing list to build a database of post ideas.
Find more related keywords
In the list of keywords you saved, you can click on the arrow button next to any keyword to find up to 200 more terms related to it.
This is where you’ll find some much more interesting and specific topics to write about. In general, the more words and more specific the keyword is, the less competition it will have.
As an example, I decided to find more keywords related to “crate training” and I found this keyword, “puppy crate training schedule,” which gets 1,000 searches per month and isn’t overly competitive.
This would be a great keyword to target in a blog post. You could even offer a downloadable PDF schedule to help build your email list.
Filter through the list of suggestions and add the best terms to a new list in KWFinder. This will be your list of blog post keywords.
Pro tip: understanding keyword difficulty
KWFinder does its best to create difficulty scores algorithmically, but it’s not perfect. Due to the nature of the logarithmic algorithm in use, it’s very uncommon to see difficulty scores lower than 30 or higher than 60. If you see a 60 difficulty keyword, you should treat it like a 90. On the other hand, if you find a 15, it’s truly low competition and you should definitely write a post about it.
It’s also valuable to inspect the search results for yourself. If you see a lot of forum posts, images, and Quora threads in the results, that’s a sign that the keyword will be easy to rank for.
Find more keywords with autocomplete
You know how Google suggests search queries as you type? KWFinder can use this data to gather more keyword suggestions for you.
Click on the Autocomplete tab and then click the green magnifying glass button to run the new query.
All of the results will begin with your keyword and then include suggested terms. For instance, the first result is “crate training a rescue dog” which is a really specific query and another great keyword for a post.
If you want to get even more results out of this feature, add prepositions after your keyword. Some examples would be:
Crate training for
Crate training with
Crate training without
Crate training during
Crate training before
You can spend a while on this tool, so don’t be afraid to be persistent and ware it out. Remember to save all the best keywords to your new blog post keyword list.
Find even more keywords with questions
The last trick KWFinder has up its sleeve is the Questions tab.
This tool is exceptionally helpful for coming up with post ideas. “Crate training what to do when puppy cries” is a great keyword to target. The searcher is looking for a solution to a very specific problem which you can provide in a post, and it’s not that competitive of a term.
In case you’re unsure, you don’t need to title your post with the messed up grammar in the keyword. I would title the post something like, “Here’s what to do when your puppy cries during crate training.” Google will understand that these are the same exact topics and allow you to rank well.
Once again, save all the keywords you want to write about to your blog post keyword list.
Pro tip: keep an eye out for “template” opportunities
Something else I learned from my keyword research is that people want training that is tailored to their breed of dog. Some example keywords include:
German Shepherd training
Boxer dog training
I saw this same trend for every keyword category – obedience training, crate training – all of them. Often times, these patterns are a goldmine for search engine traffic. You could write hundreds of posts with specific tips for each breed of dog.
Which keywords should you save?
The lower the difficulty score and the higher the monthly search volume, the better the keyword. The point is that it will be easier to rank and you’ll get more traffic.
As a rule of thumb, I would prioritize lower difficulty over higher traffic. It’s better to get a big piece of a small pie than none of a larger pie.
Ultimately, the point is to write posts about specific keywords people are searching for. It’s difficult to write a post about “dog training” because it’s so ambiguous and such a large topic. However, “puppy crate training schedule” has a more specific intent which makes it easier to write about in a 500-2,000 word blog post.
The process in summary
I tried to keep this as simple and straightforward as possible, but I understand if it got overwhelming along the way.
Here’s a summary of the steps so you can get a birds-eye view of the process.
1. Enter a “seed” term into KWFinder
The seed term is basically the name of your niche (dog training).
2. Save each keyword that has a unique search intent
You don’t need to save terms that have extremely similar intents like “dog training classes” and “dog training academy.” These are basically different ways to say the same thing.
3. Find your blog post keywords
For each keyword in your list, check out the related, autocomplete, and question terms and save the best keywords to your blog post keyword list.
Go get your traffic
There’s plenty more to learn about keyword research, but this will give you an excellent foundation for your site.
I’ve tried a lot of keyword research tools and I recommend KWFinder because it’s one of the most user-friendly and comprehensive options available. Not to mention, it’s much more affordable than most of the alternatives.
You now have a collection of keywords that cover the most popular topics in your niche, and a collection of keywords to target with blog posts. Checking the related, autocomplete, and question terms for every keyword will take a long time, but there’s no rush. You can always pop into KWFinder later to find more keywords.
By writing your posts based on these keywords, you’ll get more search traffic from each post you publish and help your blog reach a larger audience.
