Related Posts vs. Posts in Assembler

Here's the difference between Related Posts and Posts in Assembler

By using Related Posts and Posts in Assembler, you can help your audience stay engaged with your site's content and generate more traffic. Both of these features can be added to any post through Entry Editor.

When creating or editing a post, you can add a Related Posts section to the bottom of it that consists of a selection of existing posts on your site that you choose to surface. Only the main image and content headline are pulled, along with a link to the original post. This is similar to the Around the Web section that also shows up at the end of your post when you enable it from the SEO tab of Entry Editor.


One way to use Related Posts is by featuring your own related content within the body of a new post.

To add Related Posts to your post, use our Add Media Bar and search for Related Posts:

This is what it looks like after you've selected the content to feature:

Posts in Assembler, by contrast, pulls the headline, content body, author, and picture credit of selected posts into a new Assembler, while also linking out to each respective post.

Here we've performed a search for the posts we want to select and pull into Assembler:

And here we can see an example of one of the selected posts in Assembler, along with its photo, photo credit, headline, and body:

In both Assembler and the post body, you can sort related posts by relevance and age. Select your preference in the SORT BY drop-down menu underneath the SELECT button.

Here's a screencast of how to filter the order of your related posts.

Posts in Assembler can also be used to easily generate newsletters. For example, you can feature the top five latest posts, or feature an older post in a new one.

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

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, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.
