Speed Test Review

Measuring Page speed is important to users because faster web pages are more vibrant and provide a much pleasanter on-page user experience. As per the recent study, if a page takes longer than 3 seconds to load, over a quarter of users will snap away. Mobile users expect speed, too. In the same survey, 73% of users reported visiting a website that loaded too slow. Page speed also affects the growth rate.

Thanks to the Pingdom, cause it supports us in estimating the loading speed of any WordPress theme. The Thrive WordPress theme was evaluated at 786 milliseconds for the complete loading of the page. That's AWESOME! Though the page has loads faster than the exemplary time, which is three seconds, it scored 77(C) out of 100,, which is admirable but not top of the line. The demo theme we are reviewing now has several issues,, such as - higher HTTP requests (95) and uncompressed components such as Js and CSS. This could negatively affect the experience of your users.

But never bothers, it is possible to increase the score. Pressing page materials with Gzip, lessening DNS lookups and HTTP requests, and adding expire headers can boost the score. Use the WP Super cache plugin to resolve these issues.

SEO Review

Now, customers depend on various search engines to support them in finding desired products. It means that your target public is likely searching for merchandise or services like yours on search engines like Google despite what your business offers. And if you want to draw them to your site, you need search engine optimization. SEO helps you get organic visitors and push your website ahead in search ranking.

We checked the SEO compatibility of the Thrive WordPress theme on SEO Site Checkup, and we have got the expected result. The Thrive community theme has an overall score of 73 out of 100, 34 passed, three failed, and 11 warnings. The demo website is missing Meta description, Keywords, the image Alt tag on all the images from the demo website, and the demo website designing uses inline CSS. A website should have quality optimization to get a good SEO score, and we feel like developers have given much attention to the SEO for demo websites. Still, you can improve it by using SEO plugins.

We test the Rich Results by Google cause this test causes you to collect full details about a post or page from search engines. It looks like the Thrive WordPress theme has issues with the community website module. That's why we have tested the "Online learning" demo, and it's showing that the page is eligible for Rich results with one warning, and that's because the contents are missing images. A website must have the ability to provide this information cause it also leads to organic visitors. Being not eligible for this test is a major drawback, and developers should pay attention to this.
