Best WordPress themes for bloggers in 2018?
So I will be covering the top three best WordPress themes for blogs in 2018. All other themes are really just following behind one of these theme leaders.
These themes are clearly at the top of their game. Any of these themes will work for your blog or website but which one will work the best for your situation your in currently? Below I will cover the top three.
If you’re curious (or in a hurry):
So What is Divi Theme?
Divi is one of the best wordpress themes in 2018 but gets 3rd due to it’s bulky additions and plugins to your site. Plus you need to use this theme for life or use their plugin that fixes their short-code problem if you do decide to leave.
It does however offer a very easy to use editing.
This is the theme that would be better for making smaller blogs customized in the beginning, when people feel that design is all that matters. (design should really not be the focus but ease of use, fast loading times and conversions should be)
With that said… it does have unique features with the page split test option. Although this can be done much better with just monitoring the leads you capture and choosing the page that converted the highest. Or using things like Thrive Optimize with Thrive Themes.
Also pre-made templates are nice for ease of use… but are they nice for a unique branded look?
You may just start coming across as just another cookie cutter site if you use them.
Many of the features get downplayed when you look at other themes and what they bring to the table.

So What is Gensis Theme?
Ok, so Genesis has been the go to theme for a business website and still is widely used with many businesses… but ever since Thrive came to town things changed. Genesis has been known to be the fastest loading theme. The problems are designing limitations unless you know theme coding and no real conversion focus right out of the gate like with Thrive.
This is a very nice theme if you need a fully customizeable platform that is very fast, SEO friendly and secure.
You need special plugins or theme coders with Genesis theme to figure it out and get basic customizations.
Now if you’re fine with hiring a theme coder or are fine with adding extra paid plugins along with buying a child theme, you can use this theme and it works very well.
So needless to say it’s really not the best for beginners but with the proper knowledge of what you need to use… You could actually make this theme work, even as a beginner.
All coding and technical hassles aside, this can be a really good theme. You just need to use the proper paid plugins just to edit it to your liking or hire a theme coder/designer.
It’s worth it to get a quality well coded theme with unlimited updates/support that you also can customize as well as can handle the load of high traffic from an authority site.

Ok, so if you want the best of both worlds Thrive can do everything that both themes above can do. Thrive is an incredibly fast loading theme like Genesis but also has the easy and better designing features that themes such as Divi have. The thing that Thrive has that the other two do not is a focus on conversions as well. If you want a easy cusomizable, fast loading, lightweight coded theme built for SEO, then Thrive can do it all in one.
Also a theme that can grow with you and be used with a child theme if you want (this is optional and not mandatory like with using Genesis)
Thrive Themes is a premium theme where it’s an excellent choice for expert bloggers but also a beginner can learn to do it themselves with “built-in customizations” that are easy to use.
They focus not just on speed or design but also the most important…conversions.
Then you can also explode your results with their conversion focused plugins.
Thrive Themes offers the speed and coding and security of Genesis
Has the functionality right from the start of Divi
or to get the same design functionality with Genesis…

Thrive Is The Winner And Best Premium WordPress Theme of 2018
With Their Conversion Focus And Fast Loading:
Not only does it have a very well coded light weight fast theme like Genesis…. but also adds built in functionality that’s easy to use like DIVI.
Thrive Themes allows you to actually customize the look and feel of your site beyond what any other themes can do right out of the gate.
There’s no need for extra plugins just to make basic customizations with Thrive Themes.
Then they have plugins that you can add on, that can help to dramatically increase conversions.
These plugins work amazing with or without Thrive Themes.
They’re all included with membership and can turn a holy bucket of a site allowing conversions to spill through the holes in to a tight ship.
Thrive is the Best Premium Theme for WordPress. Much more than just a Theme company.
They focus on giving people what they want, rather than focusing on the what is normal.
Thrive makes their decisions based on giving people what they want but also what people truly need.
Rather that just offering up amodified version of what is already possible, they look to see what would be best for their customers and create.
Thrives conversion focused plugins help anyone to execute proper conversion techniques just using their tools.
Thrive looks for new ways to enable their customers to learn more and get better. Then in theory convert better.
