Mobile Compatibility

These days, most internet users are browsing from their smartphones. So, before purchasing a WordPress theme, you need to make sure that this theme is mobile-friendly. We have tested MaxCoach on some mobile screen, and the overall feeling is that it's not that bad. We have selected the "Artist" demo for out review.

During the review, however, we have noticed some slight issues that could easily be fixed with CSS adjustment. Indeed, the header section on mobile devices looks too big. Parallax effect doesn't work on mobile. Otherwise, all the page elements can nicely adopt any screen size.

We have also tested the MaxCoach theme's mobile compatibility via Google mobile-friendly test, and this theme has been proven to be suitable for running on all mobile devices. However, it was having difficulties to complete loading.

Design Review

Well, who said that the design doesn’t matter? For such a theme, what your students or teachers will see first, will provide a better or awful user experience (UX). The Design review we had on MaxCoach has been based on the demos offered by the author. The “Artist” demo has The base colours are Orange, White and Dark. The theme mixes all these colours to have a perfect colour mixture.

Some of the images have a glowing overlay, that helps to put more focus on the texts. We won’t forget to mention the animation available on the theme. The parallax effect works perfectly, and this creates an interactive connection with a visitor, so its a very important feature.

Somehow, we have also been impressed by the other page layouts such as - course page, blog page, membership page, events page etc. MaxCoach has Zoom video meeting system, so direct learning from home is a great advantage.

Speed Test Review

When you get to a website that demands a lot of time to load, how does that make you feel? People usually drop that website out of anger or disappointment. Smartphone users are most likely to wait up to 3/4 seconds for a website to load. Then they move to a different site. Google knows very well that if fast-loading websites are not held in the top list in search results, then there will be no value in Google's ranking chain. Therefore, it is advised to have the less loading speed for all the websites.

We are very dazzled with the results of MaxCoach's speed test. We checked the speed of Artist demo website on the Pingdom website, and the theme completed full page loading in about 3 minutes 81 seconds. Due to the lighter page size, which is 3.7 MB, we have this marvellous score. However, the overall rating is 79, which means the theme still needs renovations.

If we compress page components such as style sheets, Java scripts with the help of Gzip, then it is possible to reduce the loading speed of the page further. WordPress users are privileged to have a massive plugin store, and you can find different Cache plugins that can help you with these issues.

SEO Review

SEO provides a better user sense to your viewers and braces your website among the best. Google gives more recognition to those websites that are SEO friendly and carries legit data. SEO is a long term strategy, and it gives you more engagement and traffic. If you get an SEO friendly WordPress theme for your website, this will be real assistance to your marketing.

SEO Site Checkup is an excellent online tool that helped to check MaxCoache's SEO credibility. We found this theme above-average with a score of 73 out of 100. It failed 12 SEO parameters and got three warnings. There are no meta description tag, initial keyword appearance, image Alt tags available of this demo. Also, it lacks a sitemap file and Google Analytics script. You must use a favicon on this website, and it's using inline CSS, which can damage SEO performance.

SEO depends on data given by site owners, so it is your job to fix these issues. Want to get a higher SEO score but don't have coding knowledge? Thanks to WordPress developer cause they build some Amazing SEO Plugins. You can use them to resolve all your SEO related problems effortlessly
