Keyword-specific searches can generally produce good results but will it work the same in finding live WordPress theme samples? The answer is a big no. It’s a fact according to this article that search engines don’t index CSS files or the same data, as well as any PHP scripts in reference to the theme by it’s common name. Meaning, if you search official Room 09 demo, many results would come up but none could be close to what you are looking for. Read this to know more:

Today we’re going to discuss a very useful hack I stumbled upon a month or two ago. I had a client who wanted to see live examples of a WordPress theme she was thinking about purchasing. The official demo looked great, sure; but what did the theme look like in the wild, running on an actual site? wpshout.com/how-to-find-live-examples-of-just-about-any-wordpress-theme/
Therefore this is the right formula to use when searching live sites: “wp-content/themes/[theme-name]” and make sure that the words of the name of the theme do not have space in between. These are only initial steps but the rest you can follow as indicated in the article. Don’t make unnecessary mistakes by showing the wrong samples to clients. They will surely get back to you when you can’t deliver what you promised.
