There’s an old saying ‘DON’T USE FREE WORDPRESS THEMES IF YOU WANT TO BUILD A HIGH AUTHORITY WEBSITE/BLOG‘. Though in reality, this statement is completely false and lacks evidence.
However, there are a lot of differences between Free WordPress Themes and Paid/Premium ones.
And when it comes to choosing one, you could potentially be left chasing your tail.
Free WordPress themes typically lack all the extra features, developer support, and other visually appealing stuff when compared to their paid counterparts.
But they are leaner and faster, thus boosting the speed of your website which helps it rank better on search engines.
Let’s take a look at other key differences between free and premium WordPress themes.
Free WordPress Themes Vs Premium WordPress Themes
|Free WordPress Themes||Premium WordPress Themes|
|Totally free to download.||Generally priced between $25 – $65.|
|Comes with limited features, which in turn makes them quicker to load.||Packed with extra features but might suffer from ‘theme bloat’. Extra features affect loading speed thus making the overall website slow.|
|You may need some coding knowledge to get the best out of it.||No coding knowledge is required as it comes loaded with all the essential features|
|Installation and setup are easy.||The initial setup can be complicated.|
|Can be optimized for SEO using the Yoast SEO plugin.||Typically comes with an SEO plugin, however, Yoast SEO can be used as well.|
The temptation to save your hard-earned money by getting a free WordPress theme can be immense.
However, unless you are truly low on cash, I recommend purchasing a premium WordPress theme from a high-end vendor like ThemeForest Marketplace.
And since we are talking about the ThemeForest Marketplace, every month they offer 2-3 premium WordPress themes available to download for free.
This page is updated with new free WordPress themes every month. Make sure to bookmark it for easy accessibility.
