Advantages of Jamstack

Why go Headless?

We love Jamstack for the agility and site speed it brings to Headless WordPress. Gatsby 4 makes that even more robust. So, why go headless in a WordPress World? It’s simple: speed, security, scalability, and SEO.


When setting up a Jamstack flow, your website generates pages at deploy time because the files are pre-built and served over a CDN instead of being delivered from servers.

In other words, it serves your user faster than you can read that sentence.

Shorter database queries, anyone? Jamstack is fast!


The architecture of a Jamstack setup decouples the front-end from the CMS.

Since all server-side actions are being run by APIs, the user is served static HTML pages ensuring they are secure.

You have to love that extra layer of security.


How does Jamstack help SEO? Being fast, secure, and scalable is the extra touch your site needs to make it competitive.

Dramatically reduce page load times, increase performance, and see your rankings rise.

Better SEO is better for everyone!


Static content is served in a content delivery network (CDN). The use of a CDN automatically makes your website easier to scale. And, the CDN adds another layer of security.

So, all you have to do is write that viral blog post and launch your site!

Gatsby WP Themes gives you the best of two worlds: the speed, scalability and other benefits of a headless architecture, and the ability to install and configure a theme and have it “just work”.
