Duplicate Post Filtering

You're browsing through your site's home page, checking all the elements you've just set up, and suddenly you notice one of them is half empty.


You think, "It's supposed to have six posts there, not three!"

Well fear not, because there's nothing broken or malfunctioning. This is a result of our duplicate filtering system. We have this system in place to avoid repeating the same articles incessantly across your site. Here are some very annoying examples of what we mean:

See how duplicate content keeps overflowing from all of the different post elements? This is the main reason why we choose to enable duplicate filtering by default for our clients.But not to worry. We can still solve the issue of your six-post element missing three whole articles by overriding the setting.

Let's say you want an element in your sidebar to display duplicate posts anyway, because the space looks too empty otherwise. Well, here's how:

1. Go to the Layout & Design tool in the left-hand navigation menu.

2. Go to the Post element you want to allow duplicates for — in our example, it's the Side Bar — and scroll all the way down to the Show Advanced Options section in the Properties card.

3. You'll find a checkbox to Allow Duplicates. Check it and Save.

Now that duplicates are enabled (in that particular element, anyway), your posts will show regardless of whether or not they're repeated in the home page.

This can be done for any particular Post element you want, and you can easily reactivate duplicate filtering by unchecking the Allow Duplicates box in the Properties card.

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, frequently reports on how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse has consistently outperformed major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics throughout the year:

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 VitalsFrom 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.
