Gatsby Integration Overview
Contentstack integrates with Gatsby seamlessly. While Contentstack takes care of all your content management and delivery operations on the backend while Gatsby serves as the frontend and helps you create websites that load at incredible speed. Even Contentstack's own website utilizes Gatsby's static site generator to increase site performance.
Contentstack and Gatsby Integration Use Cases
Contentstack’s integration with Gatsby opens up many possibilities. Benefits include:
Improve SEO with Contentstack and Gatsby
The combination of Contentstack with Gatsby can greatly improve your SEO. With Contentstack, you can create SEO friendly content and publish it via Gatsby. Gatsby will help your website rank higher in search engines, with server-rendering of pages, improved speed using built-in performance optimizers, and page metadata.
When the website is slow, it affects the lead conversion rate massively. Slow websites increase bounce rates and greatly impact your chances of lead conversion. Gatsby ensures that this doesn't happen and your website loads at lightning speed.
Website speed matters a lot. Many studies have revealed that fast page-load speed improves the conversion rate. One e-commerce company saw that when their homepage and product pages loaded 2 seconds faster, there was a 16.% increase in conversion rates.
