You May See a Page Speed Boost After Our Latest CSS Optimizations

RebelMouse's commitment to site experience is an ongoing mission that's always improving. We are constantly tweaking and perfecting our platform so that our clients continue to publish quality content on the fastest sites the web has to offer.

Recently, our developers deployed new changes to better optimize our CSS offering. In short, we've refactored crucial CSS and non-critical CSS, and we've removed unused styles to minify the CSS element in Layout & Design Tool — which is typically used on AMP pages. We've also moved profile styles to its own page so it won't be required to load for all pages.

These changes help load the most critical content on your page first so that users can experience a fast load time as soon as they click over to your website. The upgrades have helped to optimize CSS across our sites significantly. Some clients saw a 20+ point increase in their Google PageSpeed scores after the update.

If you have any questions about our recent CSS optimizations, email or talk to your account manager today.

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
