Godaddy's Go Theme review for [2021] 💥

Go Theme review


The Go Theme only has a free version available through Wordpress.org. As a result, this review is somewhat smaller than that of themes that also have a pro version. This does not alter the fact that this theme is very good. It has 80,000+ active installs right now of course. The Go Theme was developed by Godaddy, the world famous hosting company. The theme comes together with the CoBlocks plug-in, also from Godaddy. The theme has unique properties that other themes do not have.

Go theme review: Rating

Go theme review rating


For starters, remember that Go has only been available to download from Wordpress.org since January 2020. If we check the Go-Theme's rating on Wordpress.org, it's 4.7 out of 5 which is just a really good rating. The Go-Theme has been installed on more than 80,000+ websites, which also gives a good impression of how much people like to work with this theme.

Go theme review: Demos

Go-Theme Theme review Woocommerce


Like most good Wordpress themes nowadays, the Go-Theme has ready-made demo websites that can be installed with 1 click, the Go-Theme currently offers about 15 of them. For Go + CoBlocks these are the following demos that have their own name: Alder, Ashby, Barista, Bento, Everett, Figure, Keynote and Salt. The nice thing about demos is that you can make a quick start with them. The website is in principle already ready, but still with the wrong photos and texts. So place your logo in it, adjust the texts and photos and you are well on your way to having your own site.

Go theme review: Webshops

With the Go-Theme, the integration of the popular Woocommerce is a piece of cake and the theme is completely prepared for it. There are also a number of stylish minimalistic demos for webshops. On their site you will find these under Go + CoBlocks + WooCommerce called Avenue, Chai, Jane, Philo and Wares. The webshops that are built with this theme have a professional appearance.

Go theme review: Speed

Since Google nowadays honors fast-loading websites with a better SERP (Search Engine Result Page), the themes ensure that they have their loading speed in order and that also applies to the Go-Theme. You can see from the images above that the Go-Theme with a cache plugin performs extremely well in all tests, these are top-loading times.

Go theme review: Customizer

Go theme review: Customizer


The Go-Theme theme comes standard with the Gutenberg page builder and adds the CoBlocks plugin which make everything work a lot better. That's why I don't think it's necessary to work with a 3rd party page builder. If you want to work with a top page builder, get the Divi Theme, which is of course not free. The complete extensive settings are in the Customizer.

CoBlocks is a plugin that currently offers 31 blocks. It also offers rows and columns so that Gutenberg functions practically as a trusted page builder. In the image above you can see that CoBlocks is installed on many more websites (500k+) than the Go-Theme and is therefore also used in many other themes. This is a top plugin.

Go theme review: Conclusion

Thank you for reading my Go theme review for [2021] to the end. The Go-Theme is a very good free theme. It offers many demos without paying anything where most themes only do that in the pro version. The use of the CoBlocks plugin is also very practical, although I personally prefer a good pagebuilder. The Go Theme is enough for most people to build a decent website and is easy to work with. If you'd rather spend some money to work with one of the best themes out there, you can do that too.
