Feel the need for speed? We’ve got you covered.
A fast loading website is a great thing to behold. There’s a lot of reasons for that, but the biggest reason? It helps your rankings.
google has decided that a fast loading theme should actually be a ranking factor. In fact, I’ve found out the hard way that this is absolutely true. I was using a bloated theme that I won’t name, found that my traffic had slipped a little bit. Poking around and talking to some SEO friends, I foud out that my site’s load speed may have been a factor.
So, I installed a fast loading theme and the difference has been incredible. Without doing anything else, I saw a big bounce in traffic and there’s really nothing else I can attribute it to. Now, you may not have been using a slow, bloated ‘premium’ theme like the one I was using, so your results may vary. But the one thing I guarantee is this, these are some of the fastest themes available as rated by GTMetrix.
Here they are, the best fast loading WordPress themes around.
