I have seen many people referring Premium WordPress Themes as those which have more quality in terms of design, flexibility, in-house SEO, multiple layouts, easy integration with analytics, adsense etc. which is not the case with majority of the Free themes available. And by default, they refer any Premium theme as a Paid theme. This is not true always. I do agree that most of the paid themes come up with innovative and additional features compared to the majority of Free WordPress themes but it is wrong to generalize it and making it a rule.

There are some Stunning, amazing, cool Premium themes out there which are nicely designed, innovative, SE optimized, flexible and yet being FREE! I am not the first one to write about these FREEMIUM WordPress themes and I won’t be the last as well. But I am restricting myself to those Free & Premium WordPress themes which can be used for Blogs with Magazine or News based content. I have not added them just to make up the numbers, I genuinely believe they are the Best options available currently.
