If SSR is so much more technically well-optimized and SEO-friendly, why don’t all websites use it?
Turns out, using SSR for your website does come with some significant drawbacks. It’s expensive, difficult to implement and requires a lot of manpower to set up.
SSR pages will have a higher TTFB latency and a slower time-to-interactive. Your user will see the content sooner, but if they click on something, nothing will happen. They’ll get frustrated and leave.
SSR is not a fix-all solution. You need to assess your website’s technical needs and challenges before putting it in place.
