    I don't trust anything I found online so I develop my own themes.

    That's a good response.

    I find the fastest and best solution is to not use WordPress.

    I know but my question was very specific.
    WordPress themes, not HTML or self-developed themes.

    The most basic themes like 2012, 2014, get someone to customise it or search for child themes for it.

    I've tested and used a lot of wordpress themes I've found "Schema" from MyThemeShop the fastest. Still, the speed depends on the page size. Very large images and self hosted videos will slow down your site irrespective of the theme used. Hope this helps. :)

    Nothing is wrong with WordPress just in general it is slower due to more files and databases.

    Divi would be my best bet. Just use optimized photos, install lazyload for good measure, and you're golden.

    Have any of you guys used paid CDNs, such as Max CDN?

    Do they speed things up much?

    Hope this hasn't hijacked the thread but seems an appropriate question on the thread.

    Lots of themes are playing with SEO in this internet world. So find it, grab it. If you think that, its not SEO optimize, so why are wasting your time, make it SEO friendly. It's simple logic.

    yea my suggestion would be go search a well optimized theme without a lot of bloat. Things like parralax and other effects wind up slowing down performance.
