In this blog post we will go over why I chose Genesis Framework for Crunchify.

Here is some history:

Few years back, after playing with both Thesis and Genesis for long time time, I finally moved to Genesis Framework.

It’s been almost 8 years I’m with Genesis. Genesis has a straightforward pricing scheme.

Genesis theme is free and open source now. This includes free sample theme and framework. Get your copy now. Click on Framework Tab.

You pay $59.95 once and get lifetime access to updates and usage on an unlimited number of websites.

Few years back WPEngine acquired Genesis themes and now they came up with new pricing model.

Google Search Console Search Appearance Structured Data


Verify your Structured Data. There should not be any Error message.

Structured data for Crunchify Search Console

And at the bottom of the page you should see all HTML5 markups like schema.org. This is very important for Search Engine Optimization. Schema.org is a web standard and vocabulary can be used with many different encodings, including RDFa, Microdata and JSON-LD.

Google Search Console Structured Data Schema.org values Crunchify

Genesis Framework Themes comes with it by default.

Step-3 How to verify?

Just open your blog page and check view source.

schema.org as part of web standard

Why Structured data?

Google, Bing, Yandex, and Yahoo collaborated together and created Schema.org! It helps you provide the information their search engines need to understand your content and provide the best search results possible to all users across world wide.

Check out below diagram for my another site which shows all structured format in Google Search Result Page (SERP).

I would highly recommend using Genesis Framework for WordPress as you don’t have worry about adding all of these structured element by yourself. It comes by default. 

I’ve never been a fanatic of a particular WordPress theme. I’ve never understood anyone who was. Until now… I love Genesis.

If you are serious about your business or building professional websites for others, I highly recommend it!

  1. Genesis is good but only because the alternatives are worse.

    My impression, based on receiving “incredible once-only” offers from Studiopress every 4 – 6 weeks, is they’re either having financial difficulties or they’re trying to milk the Genesis cash-cow without supporting it (the last Genesis release, minor update Genesis 2.1.2, was released 9 months ago) and instead putting their development effort into their Rainmaker platform.

    That’s a problem because although Genesis is good, it’s far from perfect. It often generates more code than needed (which slows downloads, especially to mobile devices) and has many internal code inconsistencies.

    It’s good because the alternatives are worse but it could easily be much better.
