SEO-optimized Web App for Resources

More than 50,000 study resources available in PDFs, pages, and markdown files were made freely accessible as a website in a structured manner. The traditional web apps created with Angular and React were heavy for mobile users and not SEO-friendly. Therefore, we used Next.js based on React for its static site generation (SSG) feature, which statically created all those web pages and later delivered from CDN for better speed.

This required in-depth knowledge in SEO optimization, including:
• making all images load faster with WEBP format,
• manually generating sitemap XML file and informing Google search console,
• setting up our content management system (CMS) for content ingestion of those resources,
• using webpack to further minify and uglify content,
• revalidating these static pages without overloading the server, and
• setting up meta tags for every page accordingly.
