Announcement: Big Changes Made to RebelMouse’s Creative Agency Team

On this gorgeous spring day in April 2019, I am very proud to announce the promotion of several key members on RebelMouse's team. They are all brilliant people who work closely with our most important clients, as well as our engineering, product, and design teams, to deliver the best sites on the internet. Please join me in congratulating them!


Sandra Orlic — Chief Creative Officer

I have never in my career met someone with the intellectual and creative capacity of Sandra. Since she began two years ago as an account manager at RebelMouse, literally every client she has worked with has sent me a personal love note about her help and involvement in bringing everything in a project together.

At RebelMouse, creativity is not just something we bring to the table as a service — we enable creativity in your own teams as well. Sandra has proven time and time again to have an inherent talent for bringing out the creative ideas in our clients and our own internal teams. Perhaps more importantly, she is incredibly talented at turning creative ideas into plans that get executed on time.

We believe deeply in continuously iterating based on data, new ideas, and opportunities. Sandra's personal passion and connection with the growth of our clients and our platform has brought happiness to them, to our team, and to me personally. Laughter comes quickly to Sandra and makes what we do fun. When Sandra is in a meeting, I will often hear a lot of giggling from her and others on the call. Nothing is a more wonderful North Star for creativity than happiness and laughter. These are only possible when everyone feels safe, comfortable, oriented, and enabled.

Soo Youn Lee — Director of Enterprise

Soo has been with RebelMouse for four years, and during her time she has focused most of her work on United Airlines, a flagship client of our company. Soo has a deep understanding of not just our platform, but also how to coordinate large-scale custom developments for the Fortune 500.

She is a strong communicator with exceptional organizational skills, which results in all of her projects being delivered on time. With a keen eye for design, she works closely with our clients and design team on translating ideas and visions into wonderful designs.

RebelMouse helps brands become new media companies, and there is nobody in the world better than Soo at getting on the ground to make it all come together to move the needle.

Amanda Alves — Director of Technical Account Management

Amanda joined RebelMouse one year ago. From the very first week on the job, we could tell Amanda was special. Not only was she taking projects live that very same week, but her passion for teaching and building community was clearly exceptional.

Amanda truly understands our platform and how it can be customized, and she understands the code and approaches it takes to get it done in a way that results in exceptional page speed scores and high-quality code.

She is a gifted and talented teacher, and under her leadership the technical account management team finds support and enablement, as well as a leader who can roll up her sleeves and help everyone meet deadlines. She won both my and all of her clients' respect immediately, and the whole team at RebelMouse thinks the world of her.

Adam Taylor — Director of Rebel Support

Adam has been an account manager at RebelMouse for two years. During his time here, he has worked with a wide variety of clients, ranging from the Fortune 1000 to large-scale media companies to non-profits making the world a better place.

He has a deep understanding of how our platform can be used strategically to accomplish goals, and how it can be customized to match the exact requirements of our clients.

RebelMouse as a platform has grown substantially since its nascent days. We now reach over 50 million people a month and have one of the largest site networks in the world. Having Adam lead the team that directly helps support our clients through their many years on our platform is a very exciting step for us as a company.

Thank You for Your Support!

To all of our many clients: Thank you for believing in us. Thank you for believing in a company run by a trans founder and CEO, for believing that women belong in tech and strategy, and for allowing us to help your business thrive.

Leverage a data-backed content strategy

The amount of work that goes into creating quality content is half the battle. For publishers, an effective content strategy must be backed by data. Still, distributive publishing brings with it plenty of insights to keep track of, and sometimes key metrics can get lost in the day-to-day workflow.

On the RebelCMS, we have a dedicated dashboard to make it super easy to integrate third-party analytics scripts into your site. This way you can keep an eye on how your articles are performing and easily adjust your strategy accordingly.

New JavaScript Element in Layout & Design Tool

At RebelMouse, we're constantly iterating on our platform to maximize the performance of our websites in order to keep up with the latest standards from Google's PageSpeed Insights tool.

One of the biggest problems with web performance is how the lazy loading of elements is implemented. On RebelMouse, we already have out-of-the-box capabilities that allow you to lazy-load assets, but if you have JavaScript from ads running on your site, Google's PageSpeed Insights tool will still penalize you for them if they're not being deferred off-screen properly.

How to Use Google Search Console’s Removals Tool

Quickly remove articles from search or see why a URL was pulled from search

Google recently released a new version of its Removals tool that temporarily blocks URLs from showing up in search results. The tool also shows which content is no longer being displayed due to either being outdated or because it was filtered out by SafeSearch, a Google feature that removes offensive content.

The new tool can be helpful if you want to quickly remove an article from showing up in search or to find information on why your content was removed from search by third-party requests.

How to Use Override Tags for Headlines + Subheadlines

Customize your preferences easily in our Layout & Design Tool

Site design should be agile, which means it's important to be able to make quick style changes that keep your content cohesive and organized. To make this even easier, there's now the ability to override the tags of your headlines and subheadlines for each article using our Layout & Design tool.

You can make these headline and subheadline changes using a Posts element. Here's a screencast of how this works:

s3.amazonaws.com

The Override default Headline Tag can be set to values <h1> through <h6>. The Override default Subheadline Tag can be set to values <h1> through <h6>, <p>, and <div>.

The new headline and subheadline overrides also work with AMP. If you have any questions about this new feature, email support@rebelmouse.com or contact your account manager today.

How to Enable Primary Tag Tracking in Google Analytics

Track your top-performing topics

On RebelMouse, we give you the ability to use as many tags as needed on every article to help keep you organized. But there's also an option to assign one primary tag to a post. A primary tag is built on the same principle as a primary section. One tag lets you assign higher importance to certain pieces of content when processing and organizing your posts.

There is also a primary tag dimension built into our RebelCMS which can be enabled for tracking in Google Analytics.

Why Track Primary Tags?

Tracking primary tags through Google Analytics allows you to track the performance of specific tags, which is helpful if you want to see what kinds of topics are performing well or underperforming on your site.

Once enabled in Google Analytics, you can see the performance of a specific primary tag, such as its pageviews, users, and more:

Then, in Google Data Studio, we can gather the data on your primary tags together to see your top-performing tags and gain insights into how they're performing.

How to Track Primary Tags in Google Analytics

To track your primary tags in Google Analytics, click on the Admin panel in your account. Then, select Custom Definitions.

Next, click Custom Dimensions.

After that, click on the red + New Custom Dimension button.

Fill in the name as Primary Tag, and set the Scope to Hit. Click the blue Create button.

That is all you need to do to set up tracking for your primary tags. Once completed, our team has to link a primary tag custom dimension on our back end. Please contact support@rebelmouse.com or datastudio@rebelmouse.com to finalize this step. Happy tracking!

You can now search for every article ever created on your site using your Posts Dashboard. First, click the Filters icon in the top right-hand corner to pull up the search navigation:
