Seamless Migration from Drupal to Storyblok & Next.js
This B2B client's website was running on Drupal 8 with a mobile-responsive theme, numerous service and blog pages, and optimized for PageSpeed to the extent possible. A significant amount of historical SEO had been established for numerous service pages.
Drupal 8 had reached "end of life", and the client was required to update to Drupal 9, which was a significant technical lift. Also, despite investing significant development hours, PageSpeed scores were still less than desirable.
Our team assessed the client's content volume and management needs, and recommended Storyblok as a headless CMS solution. For the front-end of the website Next.js and Tailwind CSS UI Library were utilized. The site was deployed on Netlify.
Once the front-end components were built, and the Block Library was defined in the CMS, content population took less than 3 days to complete! There was no downtime and no loss of rankings or organic traffic.
Best of all, the client is now exeriencing near-perfect PageSpeed scores:
PageSpeed Performance Score
Increased Organic Traffic
Increased Organic Impr. PoP
