    They probably suggest genesis because they have an affiliate program more generous than ThemeForest

    The theme need to suit to your need so we can't say which is the best, premium theme are better than the cheaper about SEO optimization, design, features and everything... but it's up to you, ThemeForest have an huge choice

    Grab a copy of the Genesis framework + most themes in the downloads section and try it out for yourself. If you end up liking and using it, support the developers by actually paying for the themes.

    They suggest Genesis frame work because of this reason maybe,

    Genesis now supports schema.org code , which allows you to output micro data in your site code.
    This enhances your site's search engine optimization even further as does Google authorship Identification, which Genesis make incredibly simple.
    It has unlimited everything like unlimited updates, unlimited support and it update your site instantly.

    Yes, including the fastness of the Genesis themes. Most developers would actually ask you to go with Genesis.

    But VirtualByron have a valid point with it's affiliate program. Although you can't beat the fact that, Themeforest is the internet home for themes

    Since I silo just about any wp theme I can, I will have to go with the default WP framework. There's a way to silo Genesis but a bit of coding is required.

    Genesis is really popular, especially in the "Manosphere", but is it really the best? supposedly it is fast and great for SEO, but is that really true?

    Yes it is fast and has a clean code generally. No theme is great for SEO lol, you have to be great at it yourself to rank on Google!

    I use Genesis because I love it and I'm used to working with it. I recommend it because I've been using it for years and I have never had a problem out of it. It's very easy to use and install. If I want to tweak something I find a tutorial and follow the directions. I know there's also plugins for that, but I like messing with code. :)

    Yes, it is very fast and clean. I don't start a website without installing Genesis. It's the only framework I've ever used, and it's the only framework I ever plan on using.
