Recently MyThemeShop launched Authority WordPress theme to replicate the look and feel of Mr. Matthew Woodward‘s blog.
I was previously using Schema WordPress theme from MyThemeShop and it really helped me to rank better on search engines because of its SEO friendly nature, after using that theme for one year I thought of changing the look and feel of my blog’s theme without loosing Schema WordPress theme advantages.
As you know, I don’t change themes frequently and I will try to stick to the theme for minimum one year so I have to take care of everything in terms of look and features.
When I came across the MyThemeShop Authority theme, I felt, it would be a perfect fit for my blog because I am following Matthew Woodward’s blog from a long time and he is the genius in affiliate marketing and tier link building strategies and it influenced me to follow his theme style.
From last three weeks, I am using Authority theme on my blog and I have chosen another pre-designed template available on this theme to avoid same design of Matthew Woodward.

Unique Author introduction widget: Whenever I see any western blogger’s blog, they will definitely include the author widget on the right sidebar which looks amazing to introduce ourselves with the new readers but unfortunately we don’t have proper WordPress widget plugin for this, long back I tried to add this type of widget on my blog but I was unsuccessful, Authority theme comes with an inbuilt Author widget.
Child Theme Support: Child themes are useful to import our customizations on new templates within the parent theme, we have six different predesigned templates on Authority theme if you want to shift to another template then you can easily migrate to that template without losing any customizations.
Previously I used to use “BZ Lazy load WordPress plugin” to improve the speed of page load time now I am using this option.
6 Pre-designed Templates: Authority theme comes with predesigned templates so that we can choose the theme as per our need, it gives us six variations of look.
Here are the list of templates
- Affiliate (Default)
- Squeeze page
Schema Integration: Schema markup is another important factor to rank better in search engines, Authority theme comes with Schema integration so that our article can display rich snippets for reviews and event on SERP (search engine results page).
Sticky Social Share buttons: Usually we keep social sharing buttons on the top of the content to encourage social shares.
Sticky social share buttons are the new feature I noticed in this theme where our social sharing buttons will stick to the screen when we scroll the content.
Award Badges Option: I don’t have any awards so I didn’t use this option but this is the best option to display awards to increase trust and brand visibility.
Custom Header: Have you tried customizing the header on Genesis framework it takes hell lot of time to get the desired look but in MyThemeShop themes changing the colors, logo, the background color is very easy.
Ads Management: All MyThemeShop themes come with this option to manage ads, personally I felt Authority theme is perfect suit to display ads on the right sidebar and leaderboard.
Custom Widgets: We do depend on various plugins for various purposes like reviews, author boxes, subscriber boxes, related posts, social media widgets and so on, MyThemeShop has custom widgets built in within the theme which avoids over usage other unnecessary plugins.
Google Fonts Support: I am very particular about the fonts displayed on my blog because we have to choose the web safe fonts to provide the best readability experience to the users, Authority theme supports Google fonts so you have to chance to choose from wide range of Google fonts.
Fluid Responsive: Responsiveness themes are mandatory now as per the Google guidelines this theme perfectly fits into all screen sizes and MyThemeShop themes are retina ready themes so it looks crystal clear on Apple products like iPhone, Ipad, MacBook, and IMac.
One Year Free Update: You will get one year free updates for your newly bought theme, later you have to renew your account to get updates.
Premium Forum Support: MyThemeShop offers premium forum support for one year which provides you solutions for your problems.
