The brief was as follows:

Fast loading for better page ranking was built using Astro static site generator, and is hosted as ‘headless’ which provides very fast loading time and high security. To help with speed, all images were compressed, and a system font was used.

This is a high traffic website, but it still loads very fast and hosting is free at Cloudflare.

Automatic Amazon links from keywords

A custom preprocessor was written to scan for keywords so that they can be replaced with affiliate links. All the author needs to do is write the keyword, and it converts to an Amazon link.

Optimized for SEO

SEO is very important for this site. It has all the required metadata and schema to ensure it ranks well.


The site looks fabulous on laptops and phones.
