“I’m using GeneratePress (or Astra or whatever) and I’ve heard that the Hello theme is a lot faster, do you think I should switch to the Hello theme?”

If you have to ask that question, you’ve given yourself away as someone who should definitely not try using the Hello theme. – Christian Nelson, friend of PagePipe

Hello Elementor? Don’t use the theme. Seriously. Elementor pagebuilder works with any theme just dandy. It’s not your theme slowing things down.

But 60,000 other people are using it! And it’s free. That means it’s good. Right? Sorry. Popularity is overrated. Your mother told you that. And 60,000 active installations is achieved by many themes that SUCK.

EXCEPTION:Don’t use Divi theme. Please. Ever.

Newsflash: It’s the huge graphics and popups and things like chatbox sliding around the page slowing down your site. Trendy cool features are non-features for speed. They are bricks, doorstops, and paperweights. If you can’t divorce yourself from these boat anchors, you’ll never be as fast as Google yearns. But when is their opinion on speed and SEO ever plain truth. Weasel words.


Godspeed-
