Schema Lite Review
Among the free-WordPress themes, Schema Lite has been in the news for a while. A lot of WordPress users, Designers, Bloggers, and even business are checking out the this one for their business. What we are going to do is to test the Theme and its features briefly.
*1 – Speed & Performance
Each year, Google is becoming difficult to understand, and Google algorithms are improving every minute. Search engine optimization has become a major factor in rankings, and it does not matter if you are paying for a Theme or downloading it for free-of-cost because On-page SEO has become a significant role in rankings.
In this case, we are going to use the Google provided tool for the Digital Marketing experts.
1: Go to the Insight Developers from here.
2: Type in the URL of the Website or WordPress Blog and hit “Analyse.”
3: The results were a little surprising.
On a smartphone, the speed is 71/1000, which is a decent number.
On a computer, the speed is 86/100, which is a perfect figure for a Website or a Blog for rankings.
Honestly, even we weren’t expecting the theme to score 86/100. To many bloggers, this number equivalent to “Ranking Made Easy.“
*2 User Interface
Schema Lite is not a Magazine theme, but it’s ideal for blogger, who writes because of Passion and Traffic. Unlike other themes, this one is incredibly simple to use, and it does not require for a reader to have little knowledge on how to use it.
- You get the Primary header.
- You get the Main header.
- A straight forward content in the middle (Thumbnail + Title + 50 words Description).
- A Right-side Bar Widget, which helps you organize important things to the right-side bar.
- A footer that explains your brand in few words, Recent posts, and your brand Social networking links.
- At the bottom, you have disclaimers option.
Incredibly simple and straightforward theme that does not come with any controversial features.
*3 For Bloggers
If you are travel bloggers, Food bloggers or Digital marketing blogger, then you know the value of speed and the User-friendly theme is ideal. The schema Lite is one of those. Why and How? Let me take you through it.
1: The theme gives an in-depth detail on how the reader has reached the article.
2: Gives information on Who published it, When the article is published, Category (it helps the newbies), and some comments (It helps both in Rankings and to the reader as well.)
3: The third one, which caught my eye is the Youtube Video Embed. Many bloggers are now running their Youtube channels or on other platforms like DailyMotion. Those who are looking to get a theme that supports Youtube Channel videos then this is it.
What I like about it is that the Title is visible and the video structure blends in with the theme, which makes it feel like it is part of the blog post.
*3 Author Tab
Among several free-themes, Author tab has always been underrated and it is also an important factor for many Authors, who want to be recognized in the industry. You can also add a link, Picture, and info in the Author box as well. However, Social Media feature is missing in the Author box.
There are tons of Plugins and Options on WP store, which you can try for free-of-cost. If you use your head wisely, you can implement several interesting things to the theme. For example, you can Social media sharing plugin to it. WordPress is known for Efficiency and Customizations.
Schema Lite is light weight, Loads Faster, Simple, and Straightforward. This theme is completely useless for Professional Bloggers and Business people. But it makes an amazing theme for Bloggers, who share information on daily basis. Shoot your comments in the comment section below.
