Digital Asset Manager (DAM) Dashboard

Visuals directly translate to more engagement and can be the difference between "just another article" and a post blowing up the Internet.  RebelMouse offers an elegant solution with the digital asset manager, which is a centralized image database integrated into our entry editor and designed to help editor efficiency.  All admins will have access to DAM where they will be able to add new images easily and use existing ones with few simple steps.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
