  • Newspaper which is what NewsMag was based on, it is also a really powerful theme that has a lot of schema markup. It is nearly perfect in terms of markup, in terms of WordPress websites I have yet to see a theme that performs as well as it does (Excluding NewsMag). In fact the next theme I plan to purchase is the NewsMag theme so I can say that from my experience and analysis TagDiv is a really good company and they take a lot of time to make their products the best that they can be.

  • Nikhil

    Everybody is recommending Schema, nobody recommending yet is using it.

    You’re using Splash? Well, that is a bit different. Most I see recommending Schema first are using Genesis platform and a child theme.

    Well, of to see what Harsh says about Schema if anything. I already know he’s on Genesis and very light on plugins.


    • Hey James,

      I was earlier using splash, then I used Genesis with Eleven pro child theme and now I am using Splash by MyThemeShop. I just keep testing new themes and on that basis I recommend themes to my readers.

      Splash is also a good theme but schema is much better than that.


  • My favorite one is Eleven40 Pro Theme. I use it for many of my websites with 2 columns layout.

  • Hello,

    Thanks For Your Valuable Information.I Got My Hosting & Domain In The Month Of September 2015, But Due To Non Availability Of Perfect Theme Which Helps Me In S.E.O.I Never Uploaded Any Theme But Finally Your Website Gave Me 100% Satisfactory Information For Beginners Like We!

  • I have used “Avada” theme for my new website. It has already optimized codes and structures.
    Thanks Nikhil for sharing these themes. Have a great day!

  • Both are great! I have executed both. Both are DAMN AWESOME! Be that as it may, on the off chance that you are a novice, consider going for MyThemeshop generally Genesis! πŸ™‚

  • Hello Nikhil,

    This is indeed a good collection of some lovely themes. I guess I need to consider the MAGXP theme because of its magazine look alike.


  • I am owner of techtimenews24, that contain some tips on SEO. I am also a reader for good blog. I belive that good reading is important for good writing. I am impressed about this article.Fine……
