Perfect SEO with Astro.js for Samurai

Industry: Artificial Intelligence


100% Lighthouse scores

Every page on their site achieves a full 100% Lighthouse score.

100% GTMetrix performance and SEO score

The site renders quickly and provides great user experience on slower internet speeds too.

Passes Core Web Vitals

Core Web Vitals are Google's own real user metrics that are part of their search algorithm.

The project wanted to migrate from WordPress to Jamstack. They wanted a deep focus on search engine optimization and page speed, and since their site has very little interactivity, Astro is a great choice for them. We developed their site using Astro.js, Storyblok CMS, and Vercel.

The results

See changes in real time using live-editor

Storyblok's live-editor enables real time content editing. No more doing changes and checking live site after publishing the changes to see if they look good – all changes can be done in real-time inside the preview screen and they will do exactly same on the production site after publishing them.

Full control over the content

Every section on the website can be edited using Storyblok's live-editor. Content can be saved for later editing and be published at any point to the production site with just one click.

100% Lighthouse scores

Thanks to the lightweight code we wrote and our focus on technical SEO and accessibility, the site scores a full 100% on Lighthouse scan. This helps the site visitors get a great user experience, and the site search engine rankings to stay high.

Passes Core Web Vitals

As a tech-focused company, we wanted to try a new web framework focused on speed. After consulting with Vaihe Media, we chose Astro with Storyblok as our CMS. Their solution exceeded our expectations for fast loading and technical SEO optimization. Jere, the founder, was readily available throughout the development process and kept us informed. We're thrilled with their work and look forward to working with them again.
