My actual WP template is getting a bit old fashioned and not so user-friendly. Moreover, a lot of my readers return to my site through mobile devices while my site is not optimized for mobile.
For those reasons I was thinking of shifting to a design from StudioPress with the Genesis framework. Will this redesign temporarily impact my SEO in a negative way, even if done correctly (redirects etc)?
Also, does Genesis work with the WPML plugin?
I doubt you'll see any negative impact on SEO however i do know that the new HTML 5 Pro themes support schema.org “article” markup which Google recommends.
Its already included in Genesis however you can customize it using a plugin microdata manager http://bradpotter.com/microdata-manager-wordpress-plugin-to-optimize-schema-settings-in-the-genesis-framework/
