WordPress is the most preferred blogging platform and CMS on the Internet, mainly due to its flexibility and powerful features. One of them is its themes, which are highly customizable and allow you to design your own unique website.
Today, we are going to a rather specific theme, designed for companies doing digital and digital, or other related businesses. His name is BLO. The author offers us a wide variety of content here, with the aim of surely attracting the maximum number of people. And we must say at first glance that we are quite seduced at a glance. We will now see in detail if it was really worth a look.

Basically, the BLO theme was designed to develop sites for startups, digital and digital agencies, and other similar structures. No wonder it is compatible with mobile devices. Today it is more practical to work on your smartphone or tablet, even more, when doing digital.
We enjoyed using BLO on our mobile devices. It is fully responsive and completely adapts to any type of screen, whatever its size. The windows are well laid out and the entertainment is fluid.
However, we have some reservations. We begin by finding that the author has not positioned the icon that activates the hidden menu very well. It is not very ergonomic in our opinion, not to mention the lack of taste on the aesthetic level. We have the same feeling for other icons like the one that opens “About Us”.
In addition, there is no “Return to header” icon. It can make navigation quite painful when you scroll for a long time.
We are now attacking design. It is the visual feeling that can cause a user to stay on a page for a long time, or even to come back another time. You can see in it all the pain that an author has taken. The creator of the BLO theme is not to be outdone. We can even say that this is one of the highlights of its theme.
The author provides 6 different home page templates for his users. Each of these models is truly unique; which shows how much the author has confidence in his talents. Not only are they unique, but they are also very beautiful.
Depending on the model, we have a predominance of blue, red, or gray; and the mixing of colors with white is very well done. The whole gives a very professional character for each of them. Whatever you want as a site, whatever your preferences, we sincerely think that you should find your account with the large panel offered by this theme.
Speed Test Review
According to a statistical study, a site that loads in more than 3s is unlikely to be able to convert potential prospects. It is relatively slow for most users. It is therefore very important to put everything in place to make navigation on its site as smooth as possible. One of the things to watch out for is the size of the images.
We studied the speed of the BLO theme and were amazed. The test was performed on the main theme page and earned a grade of B, with an average speed of less than a second. It’s very interesting given the richness of the content. The score could be even better by reducing the number of HTTP requests which is quite high.
Seo represents the level of importance that search engines give to your site. This must be optimized with good visibility among web users. In order to simplify your task, the BLO theme already has optimal SEO configurations; which suspends you from making many adjustments in this direction.
The values that we obtained by doing the SEO test of this theme are really impressive. And they can be even better if you use an exceptional tool like Yoast SEO.
In addition with what has been said above, we've noticed BLO is compatible with Rich Results. Google has indeed detected the products. However, no rich snippet was detected for the blog.
Customer Support Review
Courtesy, speed, and efficiency. These are a few terms that we think qualify the BLO theme customer service. The team responds to concerns in less than 24 hours and arranges for the customer to be completely satisfied.
Many customers have not hidden their satisfaction and their gratitude towards the BLO team.
The BLO theme is compatible with many very practical plugins like Elementor drag drop visual page builder, or WooCommerce for everything that is selling goods and services. And there are still some like Revolution slider, Contact Form 7, Mailchimp, WPLM, etc.
To conclude, we will say that BLO is an excellent theme. The design and functionality fit perfectly with its area of definition. In addition, thanks to the precautions taken by the author (Speed, SEO), you don’t have much to do to put on a perfect site with this theme. Real favorite !!!
