RebelMouse Talk to Us
Distributed Publishing, Defined

At RebelMouse, we talk a lot about distribution: distribution tools, distributed audiences, distributed publishing. As we kick off 2017, we want to make what we mean clear when we say "distributed publishing."

A Rebel's Definition of Distributed Publishing

dis·trib·uted pub·lish·ing
/dəˈstribyo͞oted pəbliSHiNG/

noun

The seamless process of creating and optimizing content for maximized audience reach across channels and devices.

In other words, create once, publish everywhere that matters.


Distributed Publishing Is Crucial

To access content online twenty years ago, audiences typically typed in a URL and went straight to a known website. Slightly savvier web users started leveraging search engines. But for the most part, as a content publisher, it was pretty simple: You executed straightforward ad buys on traditional marketing channels to build a reputation. The payoff? A consistent, reliable audience that consumed the news and information you provided.

Today, according to Parse.ly, Google and Facebook drive 80% of referral traffic to digital publishers. These powerful channels wield and constantly tweak mysterious algorithms that dictate how content gets surfaced, typically leaving you in the dark about how to stay relevant. Plus, audiences now increasingly rely on mobile to discover content. If your content is not truly optimized for mobile, you're missing an important part of your readership.

In a nutshell, you're likely struggling to 1) keep up with the digital landscape, 2) find your audience in a way that doesn't pile on the costs, and/or 3) simply pinpoint where to start.

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.
