This is about the third iteration of this site in GRAV, and it’s based on the Typhoon theme, which I love, mainly because it makes using Tailwind very easy, and has much of what I need set up out of the box.
After a disappointing Ruby on Rails website built with an integrated booking engine (not by me), I wanted to make a fast website, split it away from the booking engine, and make it very SEO friendly. I think it’s really worked for me as far as those objectives are concerned; we had dropped low in many of our preferred search terms, now we have hundreds of terms in the top 10 positions. Our organic traffic has gone from 4.5k a month to 12.9k, so I’m very pleased.
Next tasks are to use cloudflare to minimise images automatically, and to use an API to update some of the data - but on a cron tab job, so the site still runs from fixed data and not a database. I think Andy and the team have done a fabulous job with GRAV - I’d be curious to know what people think of this, and if you have any advice.
PS - I did all the sketches too : )
