fastest wordpress theme

The loading time of a website is a very important aspect. Remember the moment, when you clicked a URL of a website, where you want to read something but it will load super slow, which made you frustrated. Next time you would prefer a website, which loads faster then the previous one. The same goes for the visitors to your website. If your website’s page speed is slow well then most of your visitors will hit the back button and never come back. If people don’t stay on your website, there’s no way they will ever convert. Simple as that.

Even search engines stated the website loading time as a great ranking factor in SERPs, as more ctr makes rank up at top then less ctr website.

So you can understand if you need more visitors or want to convert your traffic to money, you must have a fast loading website. Not only your web hosting provider makes it slow, but also the theme you use.

Ready to fast your website? Here are the fastest WordPress themes that we could find…
