Standing with an Army: The RebelMouse Promise

RebelMouse is not just software: When we stand with you, you are standing with an army.

RebelMouse is a unique company. We are not just a software company, but a strategy and product partner to the clients we support. We are a creative agency trusted by our partners to help create growth.


We don't just migrate content, import feeds, and troubleshoot. We work closely with the people at the properties we power to empower them. We are proud of giving our clients an unfair advantage. We don't just care about page views or a viral video, we help businesses become sustainable and profitable as they grow.

Everyone on our team is creative, and everyone's role is bordered with blurred lines. Product helps with Marketing, Marketing helps with Client Services, and so on. It's an army of experts that've come from Huffington Post and now built two of the most important new media properties to date: Axios and The Dodo — both of which have grown at rates multiples faster than HuffPost.

It's Personal, Too

We're a dream solution for new media companies backed by venture capital that are just beginning or reinventing themselves to create the longevity that everyone strives for. That's because we have a product that adapts to industry changes and a team with a deep understanding of site traffic. This potent mix enables our clients to see skyrocketing improvements to their audience numbers and put more money in the bank.

But we're picky.

We made a decision after the 2016 U.S. presidential election to dedicate the forces of RebelMouse to good. This means we choose to work with amazing new media properties that are spreading information that informs, creates connections, leads, and inspires movements and purpose. And it's not just new media properties — legacy brands like United Airlines utilize the RebelMouse army as well.

At RebelMouse, we believe we can use our magic to shift culture (which has never been more malleable) through the media landscape. We can do it together by working together on issues that mean the most to us.

And It's Working

RebelMouse's army is expanding too. Our powerful data-driven solution, strategy-level consultation, and personal relationships are bringing in game-changing results. After re-platforming with RebelMouse, Odyssey is seeing serious stats.

Within the first month, Odyssey's new users have increased by over 25%, adding nearly two million new users in total. And their story continues to get stronger.

If you stand with RebelMouse, you'll see numbers like this too. Better yet, you'll be standing with a powerful army.

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.
