RebelMouse Talk to Us
How to Use RebelMouse’s Teaser Headline and Image Feature

On RebelMouse, you can customize your article to have what’s called a teaser headline and a teaser image. These usually differ from the headline and lead media of an actual article.

For example, you can have an article titled “You Won’t Believe These Waves at Hermosa Beach” with an image of the ocean, but when a user clicks on it, the actual article’s headline shows up as “The Six Most Historic Surfing Events on Hermosa Beach” with a lead image of top surfers instead.

Once you choose to upload a teaser headline and/or image, both elements will be displayed on the front page of your site. They will also appear on tag pages, section pages, and side bars. Here’s how it works.


Front Page Teaser Headline and Image

To create a teaser headline, click the screen icon labeled Teaser in Entry Editor’s right-hand navigation menu. Then, write your desired teaser headline in the text box underneath the FRONT PAGE HEADLINE section.

Within the same interface, you can upload your desired teaser image by clicking on the gray UPLOAD button that features a camera icon. You can use the full functionalities of the Add Media Bar for your teaser image.

You will see a preview of your image appear once uploaded:

You do not have to create both a teaser headline and a teaser image — you can choose to do one or both. After your article is published, you will see your teaser headline and image reflected on the front page of your site.

Teaser Headline and Image for Tag Pages

The same teaser headline and image will also appear on tag pages:

Teaser Headline and Image for Section Pages

The teaser headline and image will also appear on section pages:

Teaser Headline and Image on Side Bars

If you have any side bar elements on your home page, including related content or trending stories, the teaser headline and image will also appear there:

Engagement on the Rise: Why It’s Your Ticket to Loyalty

New data from Chartbeat shows engagement time is increasing despite traffic dips

Getting users to your site is only half the battle. For publishers, it’s now become more critical to focus on how long those users stay on your site — and if they ever come back. Q1 2022 data analyzed by Chartbeat found that engagement is on the rise, even though metrics like pageviews and mobile traffic experienced a decline.

Chartbeat measures engaged time by the “amount of time that readers spend actively engaging with a page — scrolling, clicking, or moving their mouse.” With this in mind, their data showed that most regions in the world registered an average of 30 seconds of engaged time on site in Q1. Readers in Latin America led the results with an average of 34.7 seconds of engaged time.

Google Launches Long Tap to Preview Function for Discover

Google Discover just got a bit more interactive. SEO consultant Glenn Gabe posted on Twitter that he noticed a long tap to preview function pop up on Google Discover for Chrome users.

The new preview feature is another great reason to start optimizing your content for Google Discover. As a reminder, according to Google, Discover is a hyper-personalized feed that "actively tunes itself to a user's interests and displays content that aligns with those interests." Since Discover's feed is curated by a user's previous web activity, it's a great opportunity to expose your content to an ultra-targeted audience.

The long tap to preview allows a user to preview an article page when they press and hold down on a story. Here’s a screenshot of what the new long tap to preview looks like:
