Post filtering in archive page

  • Hi All,
    I would like a piece of advice on this. I am creating an archive page for a custom post which have both featured and regular posts. Featured posts are supposed to be be a top and a different grid element than regular ones.
    I am evaluating 3 way of doing it and I would like to know which is the best thinking on performance, I mean is there a important difference regarding that or they are just similar?
    1. The first one is to have a taxonomy and filtering post which has the ‘featured’ term set. I will be filtering them on the template php file with a wp_query like this:

    $featured_query = new WP_Query(array(
    		'post_type' => 'noticias',
    		'tax_query' => array(
    			'taxonomy' => 'status',
    			'field'    => 'slug',
    			'terms'    => 'featured',

    2. Via a custom field using the approach shown in this tutorial

    3. Via a custom field following these examples (which way is best?)

    I prefer the 3rd option, is this the best one?

    Many thanks!
