    In this guide, learn to create your first Programmatic SEO project for a fictional SaaS called Bookify. Bookify lets you listen to key insights of business books as a short audio clip - very similar to

    To create Programmatic SEO pages for Bookify, we will need to use Engyne's Page Designer tool. This tool allows us to easily create and customize pages using data from Airtable.

    Once we have prepared our data in Airtable, we can sync it with Engyne and begin designing our pages. We will create a title, add an image, preview all pages, add a call-to-action, publish all pages, and connect a custom domain.

    By following these steps, we can create effective Programmatic SEO pages for Bookify that will help drive traffic and increase conversions.

    Step 1: Create a new Engyne site

    Start by logging in to your Engyne account at You will need to use your Google sign in.

    Create a new site by clicking Add Site button on the top right. Fill in the details.

    Click Create.


    Engyne will automatically assign you a subdomain based on your Site name. This is where all the published pages will live. Since we are just prototyping the pages right now, this is completely okay. When going into production however, a custom domain should be used instead.

    Step 2: Create a new collection

    A Collection is a grouping of Programmatic SEO pages. Each collection has its own page template and data.

    Typically you would want to create a collection for each content angle you would like to experiment with.

    Keeping it simple for Bookify, we can create a collection of pages that targets - <Book Title> summary.

    Click on Create a new collection and name it - Book summary.


    Step 2: Prepare and sync Airtable data

    Before we can start creating our page template, we need data that will go on each page. This is where Airtable comes in handy to gather, clean, and prep our data.

    Set up Airtable

    Open up your Airtable account. Create a new base in your Airtable. Call it Books.

    Create these columns with the field type:

    1. Title Name:
    2. Author
    3. Summary
    4. Image
    5. Buy Link

    Populate the table with the relevant information for each book.

    You can also import your CSV. I’ve already prepared this for you. Download this data as CSC:

    Create the header section

    Add a title at the top of the page by adding a ****Text******** component and add:

    # {{Book Title}}: Summary and Notes

    Notice how we used the {{ to bring up a list of column headers from Airtable. This is the real power of Engyne. Once a Page Template is created, we generate pages per Airtable row by dynamically switching out values per page.

    Use the arrow keys on the top-right to scrub through the generated page variations.


    Add more content by including the summary and the reasons why you should and shouldn’t read this book like so:

    # {{Book Title}}: Summary and Notes
