How to Add Links in Entry Editor

To insert a link into any article, highlight the text you want hyperlinked in Entry Editor, and then click on the chain icon in the formatting toolbar and select Insert Link. You can also insert a link from scratch without highlighting existing text.

From there, you can customize your link in several ways.

If you didn't highlight the text that you wanted hyperlinked, you can insert a URL in the URL field and customized copy in the Text field. The Open link in new tab checkbox will open your link in a new tab of the user's browser if enabled.

The Link Rel section has a few different options to consider:

  • No Opener: When you allow a user to open a URL in a new tab, that new page will have partial control over your property. To decrease the chances of a security vulnerability, you can use this option to ensure your reader can view the link safely. This also helps maintain site performance.
  • No Referrer: In Google Analytics, site owners are able to see who visited their web page from different sites. This is called referral traffic. With this option selected, referral data is not transferred. Access links to your site will still remain on search engines.
  • No Follow: This works similar to No Referrer. When this option is enabled, referral data from site to site will remain available, but Google will be disabled from crawling the links on your site. This is typically used for features like ad links or comments.

Once you have selected your link options, click Insert and your hyperlink should appear in your article's text. If you have any questions about inserting a hyperlink or URL, email or talk to your account manager today.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, frequently reports on how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse has consistently outperformed major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics throughout the year:
