Magento is the strongest ecommerce opensource now. Each day, there are many new Magento webiste are published. In this artilce, I please write my experiences so magento designers or magento developers can custom magento theme quickly.
The first: We need to design magento shop, normally we just need to design for 3 main pages: Home page, category page and product detail pages. The other pages will be based on default theme, modern them or blank themes, because the design of default, modern theme is very nice and very standard, so it is not necessary to change them, These changes here is just changes for color, button so this fit your design. If you are designer, you need to take a look at the magento demo first so understand magento themes, because if not you can design a product that is very difficult to implement into magento.
The second: We will implement design into magento. The first, please implement 3 pages from design phase. Then for the other pages You should custom theme base on one of 3 themes ( default , modern or blank theme). The selecting to what themes will based belong to your like.

Its not difficult to install new magento themes,  but many of the people confused about setting default magento theme.

First – Let me explain, How to set any new theme as default theme.

e.g   The directory structure for magento templates and layout is  “app/design/frontend/” then there is package name “default” or “blank” or “anything you have as package ”

You can set this package from admin panel

System -> Configuration -> Design -> Package.

(In magento there is “default” so leave it as it is if your package is “default”)

Now in our product we provide theme for default package so you do not have to change package, you just have to set theme.

Magento SEO Development

Magento Commerce is certainly an “SEO-friendly” shopping cart – but just like much of its brethren, there is still room for improvement. Granted, it has come along to fix some of the issues we pointed out in our first Magento review, and a few in the community have put together some extensions to further that along.  Yoast has even gone so far as to creating a beginner’s SEO guide for Magento which does a great job of covering some of the basic setup points for those setting up a Magento store that might not be attune to some of the intricacies with SEO on an eCommerce platform.  But we actually take that a step further with some additional tips and tricks that we utilize to ensure our Magento projects are search engine optimized.  I’ll try to avoid regurgitating the steps already recommended in the Yoast guide, and focus more on some of the additional steps we take when optimizing a Magento theme for SEO.
