Project Silkworth.net

silkworth.net logo

In the year 2016, iByte acquired silkworth.net which was a portal of information.

We had the colossal task of adapting over 4000 articles and bringing them in line with the latest standard while making sure that the authenticity of all articles and the website itself was maintained to the highest standard.

We deployed this new undertaking in a record time of under 10 weeks making sure old and obsolete HTML technologies were replaced with the last HTML 5 & CSS 3 compliant with W3C standards. The AMP technology was used to serve fast and streamlined web pages on mobile devices and tablets.

Cloud-based technologies were used in order to minimise load timings and decrease visitor bounce rates. All in all, we started seeing an increase in visitors and referrals from Google search engines within a period of 3 months of relaunching the website.
