    Have you guys noticed it? Every time I rip a premium theme for my website my website gets slower. I get that " Reduce server response time". Any way to fix it or just go with free themes or buy them lol.

    but yeah better take something free and responsive and fast on start = you can edit a design once and then reuse it on future sites. for examply my nulled theme doesnt work with yoast what a waste

    How do you rip? Or you use those websites that provide free premium themes?

    Guys, if you get nulled themes be sure to check them of malware, adware and other nastyware. I've used a theme like that a few years back and the damn thing kept hidden from me for a while but showed ads to regular visitors :))

    You can do a scan with Wordfence ( free plugin ), or with Sucuri site check (online) and I would also activate a VPN and look at a few pages of the site in case the thing remembers your ip and hides (that's what my issue was).

    Some premium wordpress themes are build to 'Look good' and impress the buyer. Because at the end of the day, they are a product made to sell in large volume.

    So the best option is to either look for themes from a certain framework or to 'top-up' a simple theme.

    You Should definitely look for a theme that doesn't have a lot of needless css or js, it really does slow down your site. As for the server response site make sure that there isn't any extra junk in the ripped theme.
