Kindly share your website link mate, we’ll give it a look. :slight_smile:

Welcome to our HBB Forum bro! Feel free to ask any questions and interact with the community!

thank you so much for such a warm welcome here is the url


#4

I have 3 questions bro. :slight_smile:

  1. When did you install this theme?

  2. Which cache plugin you are using?

  3. Which web hosting you are using?


#5

the theme is 1 year old,
using wp rocket.
and bluehost.in


#6

In WP Rocket, check these options bro - “Mobile cache” and “Minify files” - Have you enabled them?


#7

yes
I have enabled both according to the guide


#8

We have a helpful resource for optimizing WordPress blog, but it’s for W3 Total Cache:

Kindly have a look at it, to understand the options you should enable/disable on your plugin as well, pls try this, wait for a while, check your score on Google Page Speed Tool, and please update me bro!


#9

the score on google page speed tool is 70/100 its very bad , n i have heard that if site loads slow it affects rankings


#10

That’s true bro, site loading speed is an important factor for ranking. I feel your current theme is too crowded. You can edit your theme bro, try to remove unnecessary elements like “3 weeks ago”, “Add Comment,” etc. :slight_smile:


#11

please suggest some good seo friendly theme bro, i will change the theme


#12

If you need an optimized theme, then check out “Schema” bro, it’s not a free theme, but you can try this:


#13

bro what did you mean by saying edit your theme and remove unwanted elements? how can i remove? should i have to edit the code?


#14

Yes, bro, you can manually edit the theme and remove unwanted stuff. Visit your website as a reader and think of all the sections you might avoid or don’t give preference, you can remove them. :slight_smile:


#15

but i dont know codes n all i mean if i find that 2 weeks ago or something not usefull how can i remove it, how to edit it?


#16

I would definitely suggest you skip it if you are not into ‘coding’ bro. :frowning: You can edit the theme via WordPress Theme Editor, like if you want to edit the homepage elements, then there will be a file called index.php, you can edit there…


#17

can you tell any site that is using schema? i have that theme i can use it


#18


these are my test results on current theme


#19

There are plenty of websites using that theme bro, see, by default all of them will be good, but once you modify them according to your needs, you can see the difference bro. Your theme’s loading speed is good here, but for Google, they see several factors, that’s why you got those errors/warnings.
