Forte is a crypto blockchain company that had a one page website built with a decoupled version of WordPress. This means the front end pulls data from the API as opposed to the database, like it normally does in a WordPress install.
This also means that adding a blog is somewhat difficult, as there is no “out of the box” functionality anymore, and everything has to be rebuilt. So, in an effort to help with their SEO, Forte wanted to move their blog from Medium to WordPress.
I built out the backend so they can easily update and maintain all their blog content now, which comes with archive and category pages, as well as single post pages, and of course the blog landing page. Now, they get all their link juice to their own site instead of to a Medium blog.
Eventually, we’ll rebuild the entire site in WordPress as an initiative to be even more SEO & mobile friendly, and allow the marketing team to move faster.
