I found a moment to test my favourite WordPress themes, namely Astra, Kadence, GeneratePress, Blocks and OceanWP. You can find basic information about them in the article: "The best free WordPress themes“.

What do you think the test results were? Do you have your favourites? See what my test showed:

For the impatient who don't like to watch and prefer to read, I give the results of the test. Here is the list of themes in order from the winning theme to the theme that came in last place:

  1. GeneratePress
  2. Kadence
  3. Astra
  4. Blocks
  5. OceanWP

I can honestly say that I am pleasantly surprised with the results achieved by the GeneratePress theme. When I moved from it to the Astra theme about 2 years ago, its results were similar to those of the last theme on the list. Since version 3.0 of GeneratePress you can see a huge leap in quality and let's hope it will be maintained for as long as possible.

Each of the tested themes is a free version available in the repository WordPress. You can download them and run your own tests. Soon I will extend this test with more results, but this time there will be sample content on each of the tested pages. There is no certainty what the results will be, because I have seen many examples where the theme went crazy after inserting simple content and the quality metrics went up and down. Will GeneratePress keep its position? We'll see in the next test 🙂 .
