Choose a good Drupal theme for SEO

When choosing a theme you should make if fit the site you are building but you should also consider a certain style for search engine optimization.  Your theme should contain h1 h2 tags,  and consider a menu across the top with links into your site instead of a left navigation column.  Another thing to consider is columns on the right instead of left.  The reasoning behind this is that search engines give more value to content near the top of your pages.  Your links to other pages within your site and your main content should be as high as possible.  Right nav columns and a top menu help create this effect.   This is slowly changing and may not be the case at some point but as of today it still helps.

So take a look at all the free drupal theme sites out there and pick carefully.  Or venture out and make your own theme of course.
