Yes it could affect the site's ranking either in a good way or a bad way.

It depends on the background coding of the template if you leave the actual content the same.

It is may be happen. Because a quality website template was create more interest for viewers. And that is maintain the bounce rate. So it is definitely a positive sing for you.

There's no guarantee a new template will "create more interest for viewers". Even an old website with great content can create interest.

If you can prove bounce rate is a main factor in the SERP algo, I'll give it a read.

As long as you don't disturb the Content and Other Optimizations it won't affect the rankings. And Of-course if your website is more attractive than the previous one, then it would definitely help the users to get engaged. But keep in mind ranking factors depends on many things. So do better research before changing the templates.

So, using the same content alone will not guarantee that nothing will change for the worse.

Like @HTMLBasicTutor already cleared to you that this will effect website ranking in a good or bad way.

I recommend you look into few things before changing the template

1) Check the new template is mobile friendly
2) How is new theme showing the content on home page?
3) Is the proper interlinking feature is available or not?
4) Is the URLs also changing due to a new template or not?
5) Beautifulness is hardly mattered for search engines, focus on speed, content and all basic on-page SEO parameters for the new template.

Webstie Template Changes effect on Website Ranking?

If you change only the template 90% seo traffic it won't affect otherwise, if you make some major changes like URL structure the traffic may down.

I think the OP's question is about using another template - not modifying the existing template currently being used.

@cloudy, maybe you are just repeating that which you have read in a previous members post (which is not on-topic, by the way). However, if you are referring to changing templates, re-read post #2, then feel free to supply some verifiable data to back up your claim.

Yes, It will... Unless you Make changes in steps. Make sure On Page SEO details don't get affected by changes in template.

It's more than just on-page effects. Each theme will be different in terms of the structure and underlying code, which could affect ranking. You won't really know the end result, unless you look at reviews, or take the plunge and figure out what is wrong and fix things after the fact if ranking changes.
