Very specific project - so please give a very specific answer, to get the project.
On my existing wordpress website (Avada Theme), the most important feature will be - Immigration Library:https://www.immigration.global/visa/
Since it is in demo mode, and content has not been uploaded yet, please click on Worker. And then in worker click on H-1B
So worker is one category. It has several visa types under it. And H-1B is one of the visa type. When you click H-1B, you read about H-1B. And then on the left sidebar you will see several articles related to H-1B.
So you see I am trying to build up a very large database, which will cover hundreds of different visas and hundreds of related articles.
1. Even with all its benefits, Wordpress is slow and has its limitations. Multiple page uploads of same content, unnecessary scripts, and requests, etc.
2. Back-end is good. However it is still little difficult and cumbersome to assign categories and subcategories to the hundreds of articles and headings within immigration library. And to assign / re-assign order to the posts.
3. And since I will be entering original content which is going to take me years of work, I want to make sure I start with a perfect architecture
These are my questions:
1. Outside of wordpress, please tell me what technology (Node JS, Bootstrap, Ruby, etc.) what will be your recomendation. I am looking for starting from scratch and keeping in mind SEO, speed, and ability to have easy backend for content.
2. How much would it cost. Basically in terms of design/functionality, I want to replicate the existing website. However with minimal coding.
3. Please also let me know what is your SEO expertise level and if you have ever designed a website from scratch from SEO perspective.
Please make sure before you respond, your technical person has studied this feature I posted. Make sure you have seen my Immigration library feature. Specially the demo content I have uploaded in Worker > H-1B. See how the similar articles/posts are reflected on the sidebar https://www.immigration.global/visa/h1bvisa/
