    I read an interesting article today about increasing your WP pagespeed. Most of the suggestions are nothing new, but something did particularly catch my eye:

    If you want a super fast WP theme, Jupiter looks like your best bet.

    In any case, here's the article, for further reading purposes:

    I will be the first to say it, it isn't matter. My wp theme is 1000 times more optimized than my close friend' theme but I reach 82% on google page speed insight; on the other hand, my friend' theme reach 85. Reason? I pay 10euros/3 month, he pays 30euors/1month !!!
    I optimized my theme so much that if I optimize it more (I can) it will really become a rudimentary theme!
    There's a clear balance... experience will guide you!

    This is totally LIE. Theme can't be more better speed than other theme. Only site can be. Each theme has many modules, many settings. it's impossible to have the same settings in all themes, but this is important part, because if you enable too many modules in one theme and no modules in another - of course, second will be faster.

    If you need real advices for better speed - check my article, I gather all best sollutions for simple shared hosting.

    Who are you paying? Google pagespeed is a free service.

    The results are based off of a fresh install, presumably using the same speed optimisation tweaks across all the sites they tested the themes on. The point of the article was to show which theme is faster, when everything else is exactly the same.

    Edit: Also, your website has a score of 62/100 on desktop, which isn't amazing, especially when you're trying to give people advice on how to make their website faster.
