    Hi Ankit,
    It’s good to know about why we need the Genesis Framework. I was actually wondering what it’s all about when I first ported to WordPress. Though I just installed mine few days back and I really love it features. Thanks so much for sharing and do have a nice weekend.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Victor,

      Glad to know that you are using Genesis and loving it’s features.

      Good luck for your new blog and thanks for sharing your views 🙂

    Hello Ankit,
    I am a newbie blogger. I have started my self hosted WP blog recently. These days i am looking for buying pro themes. I used to search which framework is better? Thesis or Genesis. I don’t know anything about coding. I want to ask you is genesis framework is easy to manage without any technical skill? Or what skills i have needed to run my blog if i go through Genesis Framework?

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Piyush,

      Thesis is only for those who knows coding stuff and seriously it’s very hard to manage.
      Genesis is easy to handle and you can customize it according to your wish. Many great Genesis tutorials are available on different sites but it’s hard to find tutorials for Thesis.

      For me, Genesis is best framework for WordPress users.

      Good luck with your new blog and let me know which framework will you choose.

  3. Soumyakanti Ray says:

    Again a great share, Ankit.

    I agree with you that Genesis is the most reliable and flexible Framework. Genesis Framework is really very easy to handle. We can easily customize it without having much knowledge in CSS. The best part of it is that it has inbuilt SEO features which better optimize our WordPress blog.

    Even a new blogger can optimize his blog by installing Genesis theme in his blog.

    I am using Genesis since 2 months and I am very happy with it.

    Best Regards!

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      That’s true Soumyakanti.

      Genesis themes are very easy to customize. SEO feature is the biggest selling point of this framework.

      This is the reason why bloggers opt for this framework as compare to other frameworks like Thesis.

      Glad to know that you are also using Genesis. Good luck for your blog.

      Thanks!
      Ankit

  4. One more awesome thing I would like to add to this post is that Genesis is the only framework which supports fragment caching available in W3 Total Cache pro. This means that Genesis users have the option of getting a more faster website. One more thing which is really good in Genesis is the typography. I love it for it’s clean, fast layouts and good typography!
    A good post Ankit, keep writing!

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      I was seriously not aware with this great feature of Genesis.

      Thanks Aditya for your value adding comment.

    Hi Ankit,

    Nice Review 🙂 Genesis is my all time favourite theme framework for WordPress. I’m using Genesis themes on my blogs since 1 year. We got a large collection of themes powered by Genesis.
    Genesis themes are easy to customize and it will help us to boost up the site speed.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Abid,

      I am glad to know that you are a happy genesis theme user.

      I am also a great fan of genesis themes and using them on all of my blogs.

      You are right about the blog loading speed. By using genesis theme, now my blog load faster and also it improved my search engine rankings.

      Right now I’m using Custom designed theme on my blog BloggerTipsTricks but would like to know from you which studiopress theme you like the most and why?

      I’m looking for a great Genesis theme for my another blog and your suggestion will be appreciated.

      Thank you so much for your comment.

      Best Regards!
      Ankit

  6. Hi Ankit

    First of all, I would like to say a big thanks for sharing this amazing review for Genesis frameworks theme for WordPress blogs.

    Well I would like to share my personal experience, when I was new to blogging I used many free theme of WordPress but those theme are not that which I actually want. I mean I never got all my requirements in a single theme.

    As I become older on Blog-o-sphere then I saw a WordPress blog which was using Genesis theme and At that time, I was amazed because I found everything which I want in that theme. I really like the designs of these Genesis themes even you can see the cuteness of my blog also. 😀

    Genesis themes are more SEO friendly and user friendly too. Google and your readers will love your blog’s look and will also love to visit on your blog again and again. One thing which mostly attracts me in these Genesis themes is that their fonts design ( Including font and it’s size ) are just awesome.

    Font design is also a great reason for using Genesis theme on my blog because In free theme, the design or the size of fonts in the posts are just unusual which I don’t like. As I know to build a good personality and identity of your blog on the BLOG-O-SPHERE, your blog should look just awesome which can be done ONLY & ONLY by Genesis themes.

    Thanks once again Ankit Bro.

    Happy Blogging 😀

  7. Siddharth Sharma says:

    Hey Ankit Bro,

    Thanks for Telling me about the main use and complete biography of Genesis framework. I can remember on day you told me about to use it so, today my blog is running on genesis framework.

    Thanks 🙂

  8. supreeth bharadwaj says:

    hey ankit
    well thats right i recently bought genesis, and i have applied a child theme
    as i am new to wordpress is it good to use a child theme or is there any flaws in it too? anyway thanks , but i wanted to ask you any changes in 2.1.2 ?
    i improved my ranking a lot!
    :)regards
    supreeth

  9. I struggled to convince myself to purchase Genesis and regret every day I wasted not doing it. It simplified things so much for me and I should have pulled the trigger a lot sooner, every thing is so much cleaner and easier to set up as an amateur.

  10. Sangram Barge says:

    Hi Ankit,
    You have solved all my doubts with this amazing post. I am completely new to wordpress and I wanted to know which themes I should use on my site. Your post on genesis framework have certainly helped me and now I know what I should use. Thanks 🙂 a lot !

  11. Hi Ankit,

    Do you use Genesis for everything? I have a habit of mixing things up and using different themes for different sites but if this is as customizable as you say then maybe I should give it a shot.

    $60 is very affordable, too. Would like to hear your thoughts?

    Brian.

  12. Hi Ankit,

    You’ve presented a beneficial post for the bloggers which would nudge them to move their blog to Genesis Framework.

    Recently, I’ve shifted my blog to the same with your good support and many thanks for it. As you specified, it has user-friendly features with inbuilt SEO. I got traffic improvement after migrating my theme to Genesis as few of my blog posts are holding good rank.

    It is worthy to buy this theme and it loads fast as you said. Moreover, this design is perfect for mobile devices. I suggest every blogger to use Genesis to reap its benefits.

    Thanks for writing this detailed review of Genesis Framework bro, keep reviewing the worthy blogging stuffs.

  13. Liz McGee says:

    Hey Ankit,
    I use Genesis and have for a long time. I actually prefer it because it’s so well coded and optimized. But it’s also supported. With all the internet and web changes that happen almost on a daily basis our blogs need to be able to keep up so support is important. I’ve had blog themes that weren’t supported and it can get to be a problem after a while if they’re not.

    The other thing is that the child themes are affordable. The Genesis framework is about $60 but you can get the child themes for as little as about $18. All of it is less than $100 when you’re done. For a blog that has all the options you mention above that makes it totally worth it. 🙂

    Blessings,
    Liz

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Liz,

      I appreciate your thought. I also prefer using themes which comes with update supports. SEO is changing very frequently and to stay in this competitive internet world, we have to stay updated with our content, marketing strategies and even themes too.

      I love this feature of Genesis. They provide free updates and it’s easy. No worry about latest SEO changes. Studiopress always comes with their latest SEO changes supportive themes. Even a newbie can do well by just using Genesis themes.

      Apart from the features Gensis themes provides, their price attracts me a lot. They are so affordable which I think is penny investment for any serious blogger / internet marketer.

      Thanks for your comment.

  14. Awesome Post
    I already read 100’s of articles related to Genesis Framework but this one is different from the rest.
    Genesis always the No.1 choice for bloggers and that too using WordPress has their blogging platform.
    Keep your good work
    Have a Nice Day

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Perambur,

      I’m also using Genesis on all of my blogs. It’s a perfect theme (framework) for serious bloggers and internet marketers.

      Thanks for your comment!

  15. Aditya Singh says:

    Hi Ankit,
    Awesome article, as you have mention lot of benefit of genesis theme. Yes you are right genesis is a good theme recommend by many expert bloggers.

    As genesis has the inbuilt SEO and the loading time is also good of genesis. But my favorite theme is thesis as the design of the theme is awesome and the functions are inbuilt in that. Thesis is bit complicated but it is nice theme.

    Thanks for sharing the article. 🙂

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Aditya,

      I have never tried Thesis theme before but I heard about it too many times.

      May be in future I would test it on my other blogs but for now I love Genesis themes the most. You can see, all of my blogs are running on Genesis themes only and I also recommend to use it.

      Would you like to share your personal experience of using Thesis theme and what special features you found in it?

      Thanks for your valuable comment.
      – Ankit

      1. Aditya Singh says:

        Hi Ankit,

        I have used the thesis theme in my blog, the thesis theme is fast and SEO friendly and what i like most is the the function that we used to code in genesis we don’t have to do it in thesis.

        Theme is easy to edit if you know how to use it, even the color option is good , more fonts are there. All these things make the thesis better then the genesis.

        I am not saying the genesis is bad. I am saying thesis is better than genesis THIS IS MY OPINION.

  16. Rezaul Karim Arif says:

    The post is very helpful 🙂 Thanks.. Can u please tell me what social sharing button plugin your are using .. I want to use it on my site.

    Thanks Again..

  17. Vishal Maihdwan says:

    hey Ankit a another good article from your side , one of my friend kulwant naagi too suggest me to use that one , but am totally addicted to blogspot even i love blogging on blogspot , but a little confusion about the SEO term’s of the both platform’s is WordPress more optimized than blogger , may be except a valuable answer

  18. Alex Periera says:

    Ankit,

    You are rock star and a life saver! Genesis seems to be some thing, I was frantically searching for. I had my word-press website done by a designer, now whenever I want to customize it or even change it a bit, I have to grapple with the complicated php code. Just few days back, I wanted to add a new blog in my blog page and despite my best efforts I could not find the way how to add my new content on to the blog page. I hope with Genesis, all my customization issues are solved. BTW, do they give us this framework on trial?

  19. Surendra Soni says:

    Hello Ankit,

    Nicely written article bro. As per my opinion Genesis framework is the most simple with highly SEO optimized framework. Like you also don’t have to install any seo plugin , have simple design, easy to customize, lighting fast loading time and many more.

    I am using genesis from my own site and also recommend my clients to you it for their projects.

    Now I am in process of building my own Customized Genesis Theme Selling Site. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing This awesome article .

  20. Hello Ankit,

    You are so correct that when you are are a newbie and trying to setup a new blog it can be challenging, In regards to SEO, you are so correct that some of the wordpress plugins are not compatible and conflict with each other. I have had this problem many times. Great layout of the SEO capabilities of Genesis.

    I used the Prose theme before and loved it. It definitely loaded fast which is very important to anyone who has a blog or website. I was not familiar with any type of coding and did not need to be with Genesis. It was very user friendly and I loved that fact.

    You have given some great points here I was not aware of with the Genesis framework. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Nate,

      I always see newbies face many problems in setting up their blog. Specially they always stay confused which theme they should use on their blog. But I must say, Genesis is the best theme which I recommend my audience to use. Even a newbie can easily understand its functionality and customizing the Genesis (Studiopress themes) is super easy.

      Loading speed is one of the best features of Genesis themes and all of my sites are running on Genesis framework only. I have never tried the Prose theme but would like to use it on my next blog as per your recommendation.

      BTW nate, Studiopress just released a new Genesis theme named Whitespace Pro. Have you tried it yet? I got their newsletter where they talked about this theme and it’s sound very impressive. What you think about addition of this new theme in studiopress themes gallery?

      Thanks for your comment!
      – Ankit

      1. Hi Ankit,

        Thank you for that information. No I have not tried that new theme yet. I will have to sign up for their newsletter so I get those details. I will go check it out. Thank you.

        1. Ankit Singla says:

          Thanks for your revisit, Nate.

          I always read their newsletters to see what’s going new and which themes are trendy these days.

          It also helps me in affiliate promotion as they tell about top selling themes of past month in their newsletter.

          You must sign up for their newsletter. It will keep you updated.

          Best Regards,
          Ankit.

  21. Very nice article, Ankit. I am in the process of redesigning my blog and have been looking at Genesis. I wish there weren’t so many themes to chose from, though. It’s so difficult to make up my mind! Thank you for this informative post. It has answered some questions for me. Peace.

  22. Hey bro nice article..I’m in great confusion between framework and theme..Is buying framework alone is enough.
    Have a look on my site.I just started blogging 2 month ago.please suggest me. infogeekers.com is my site.

  23. Kartik Shah says:

    There’s a lot that I came to know about Genesis theme. Since I am a newbie in blogging world posts like these help me a lot to learn new things. Thanks for putting effort for writing such a detailed post. It comes straight from my heart. Hope you see more success!

  25. Rashedul islam says:

    Great review man,,,,,
    and do you have any coupon for this ???

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      You don’t need any coupon Rashedul. I’m offering News Pro theme for free as a bonus if you buy Genesis Framework from my affiliate link. Thanks!

  26. I wasn’t really sure about what actually Genesis is. I’ve seen it in many popular sites like Problogger, yet it was a little bit cloudy for me to start with. But I think now your article has clarified it enough. Thanks a lot for this post.

  27. Sreekant Shenoy says:

    Hi Ankit,

  28. This is nice review, I have hosted on hostgator with genesis framework theme for my new blog, in the process of setting this.
    Can you suggest any genesis theme setup with wordpress videos, as this can help newbies like me.
    Excited with their theme and my new blog which will be called my.digitalseo.com

  29. Nikhil Ganotra says:

    Hey Ankit,

    Great review indeed!

    I am too using Genesis Framework with eleven pro child theme on my blog. And my website loads in milliseconds since I switched to Genesis Framework.

    I have implemented many WordPress themes on my blog, but Genesis Theme Framework worked the best. Investing few bucks in it, is really worth the money.

    Thanks for sharing this amazing review!

  30. Hi

    I am starting a blog and new to ALL of this. I have fallen in love with a wordpress theme from Envato, which does not need Genesis to run. From what I am reading, it seems I really should be getting Genesis, and then finding a workable child theme. Is there any way to customize a child theme enough to sort of look like the other word press theme I like? I am at a crossroads on this one… Thank you!

  31. Thanks for the great article.
    I have some questions:
    1. I want to find one that can help Genesis plugin automatically retrieves articles from RSS is not?
    2. How quickly can custom homepage by: drag and drop?
    Thank you very much

  32. Vishal Jain says:

    Hi Ankit,
    Though I am not new to blogging, but I am new to Genesis framework :). Earlier I though Genesis is just a theme like othere wordpress themes, but I was confused. So I started exploring Genesis. After reading this post, I got to know almost everything and, I am clear what Genesis is. Thanks for such detailed post. Keep it up.

  33. Hi Ankit,
    excellent review.

    I started using Genesis Framework since the beginning of my blogging journey, more than 5 years ago.
    I like the flexibility and customization settings available.
    I’ve a few different child themes, installed on my sites.

    I’m a big fan of Studiopress!
    Thanks for sharing!

  34. Hey Ankit,

    Thanks for the review, I am interested to buy genesis but there is no any other bonus offer :-p

  35. Hi Ankit,

    It appears BloggerTipsTricks.com is using the FocusBlog theme from Thrive Themes and not Genesis.

    Is there a reason you are not using Genesis anymore?

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hi Greg,

      Thrive themes are conversion optimized. That’s why I’m using it.

      You can check their official site and you’ll understand why I’m using it 🙂

      Thanks,
      Ankit Singla

      1. I use Thrive’s Rise and Luxe themes. Nice themes but not as aesthetically pleasing as Genesis.

  36. Hi Ankit,
    Wanted to know one thing here. I wanted to customise the theme as per some of the requirements. As far as I know, I will need the child theme for that. Wanted to know what would be the total cost for the same Do you have to pay more than the 60$? If yes, then what is the payment of 60$ for?
    Thank you,
    Shaurya

  37. Wow nice article ankit

    First of all I am daily visitor of your site I read you are all posts and tips and implement on my site and after that I really increased my website performance

    I worked with Genesis on my client sites and ya after using it really decreased our site load time from 3 sec to 1sec
    I also use cdn service with Genesis and decreased more to 700mm

    Its very easy to work with this genesis

  38. Hi Victor,

    Glad to know that you are using Genesis and loving it’s features.

    Good luck for your new blog and thanks for sharing your views

  39. I was using free theme for my blog previously. But i faced many issues such as my blog was loading very slowly and also some plugins were not compatible with the theme.

    I did research between Genesis and Thesis framework. Finally i made up my mind and purchased Genesis framework and digital pro child theme. Now my blog is much more faster with shared hosting. Also yes, there is rise in my blog traffic and also bounce rate is gone down.

    Customization is also very easy in genesis theme.

  40. Sir,

    Sorry for commenting here. I want to know which plugin you use for adding that box and post content.

    thanks !
