The other week we covered how Googles John Mueller stated that changing your site style or WordPress theme, can affect your rankings. However when will altering your site style not affect your rankings?John Mueller of Google in fact addressed this question a couple of months back on Twitter. He stated that when you change the colors on your site or move HTML aspects around, that should not actually have an impact on your Google search rankings. If altering the website theme results in the layout changing, how your internal linking looks and the overall website style – then that can affect your Google rankings.John said “If youre altering the color & & moving HTML elements around, I would not anticipate concerns.

Consider what you want in a style, and ensure it includes SEO improvements!”Here are those tweets: If youre altering the color & & moving HTML aspects around, I wouldnt expect concerns.
