We at Forbytes always strive to stay on top of the latest trends and practices in software and website development. This helps us implement the most useful technologies in our software development process and provide clients with the best eCommerce solutions.
We took this approach to our client Trademax.se – one of the largest furniture online retailers in Nordic countries. For the last several months our team of developers has been working hard on using Rendertron (a tool recommended by Google) to implement Dynamic rendering for Trademax.
Dynamic rendering allows your website to detect who is accessing it: a normal user or a search engine bot (crawler). As a result, regular website content is served for normal users while static HTML content is served for crawlers.
How Dynamic rendering can help your website
First of all, Dynamic rendering makes your website faster by decreasing its FCP time (first contentful paint). Basically, it’s those gray blocks that you often see when opening a web page for the first time. It may sound unimportant but there is actually a deeper meaning here.
The less time it takes for a page to show something to visitors – the more likely they are to stay and wait for it to fully load. Let’s face it, if your visitors are looking at a blank white page for more than a few seconds – they are not going to stick around.
After we launched Rendertron in November, FCP time on Trademax.se has decreased substantially, as seen on the graph below.
In simple terms, Dynamic rendering helps search bots index your website by serving static HTML content instead of dynamic. As a result, customers can find and visit your store with ease, and you can turn those visits into transactions.
