Affinity continues the latest trend of SEO optimised templates. The layout of the template has been constructed differently to the norm. A typical WordPress template, in regards to the mainbody source, will load the left column first, then the right column and finally the main column (where your main articles are loaded). Affinity takes a different approach and loads the main column code before the left and right columns.
Therefore, this template loads in this order: Header, Menu, Showcase, Main Column, Left Column, Right Column, Bottom, Footer. This is perfect for SEO purposes as the search crawlers will find your main content before your subsidiary content in your side columns. This is a major step forward and will improve your search engine results for your pages.
