    Hello All,

    I am about to rebrand a website of mine. It is an affiliate site and it

    I want a very fast site + the ability to have a review box at bottom of the page and some button for conversion. I think now it's time for me to move with a simpler / faster site focused on content as it seems Google is really looking for it.

    I am currently looking at :

    a. Genesis Framework (i am not sure how to add review snippets on it)
    Demo: https://my.studiopress.com/themes/genesis/

    b. Schema
    https://demo.mythemeshop.com/s/?theme=Schema&ref=aigars

    c. Thrives Themes
    https://thrivethemes.com/

    Would you have any recommendation about this?

    Thanks a lot!

    I would recommend Schema. It loads faster. Great in both desktop and mobile versions.

    Thanks a lot ! I used Rehub in the past and had a bad experience (bad support + poor code).

    Any other feedbacks ?

    Schema has great options. Genesis doesn't have much options (Like adding header/footer codes, customization) You need to install separate plugins on Genesis

    I like Thrive and have it on several of my sites, but I also like the MyThemeshop stuff.

    Interesting your comment about ReHub, I looked at that the other day after someone mentioned to me they used it and liked it as it converted well for them.

    I was looking at ReHub some time ago too. It look's quite nice and efficient.

    But then I saw reviews of people complaining about bad code and others complained that you need a bunch of heavy plugins for the theme to work properly. I don't know if it's true since I never tested it, but the reviews put me off. And seeing people saying the same thing on here makes me satisfied that I never went for their recent discount. :)

    Generatepress + WP Elementor. Unlimited possibilities + it's fast. Very fast.

    Forget this i bought it and try to use it it just sucks terribly!

    About thrives theme i am thinking to avoid such kind of theme to go for a more flexible framework. I also have Thrives theme (bought for a test) but somehow dont know if i should go further with it and not go forward with genesis or more flexible framework.

    I would also choose Schema, since it’s very responsive and light weight. Also the fast loading is an amazing benefit. Since you said you want a very fast website, I think Schema would best suit your needs.
