How GoFundMe Spreads The (Social) Word For Good Causes

GoFundMe changes the way the world gives. As the world's #1 social fundraising platform, GoFundMe connects campaigns with inspired audiences -- wherever they are across key social channels like Facebook and Twitter -- and brings organizers closer to crushing their goals.

GoFundMe Had A Vision...

  • Increase social presence of campaigns without disrupting GoFundMe's legacy technology.
  • Build relationships with third-party social accounts.
  • Better quantify and organize social growth and activity.



What Happened: Rebel Discovery

  • Plug + Play Implementation. Rebel Discovery easily plugged into GoFundMe's existing proprietary CMS, for immediate use by edit and social teams.
  • Social Growth Potential With Every Story. With proprietary algorithms and built-in outreach functionality, GoFundMe regularly uncovered and engaged relevant social accounts to amplify inspiring fundraising stories.
  • Data That Surfaces What Matters Most. The Rebel Discovery dashboard houses insight that allowed GoFundMe to easily check the results of their outreach efforts and identify valuable referrers.

The Result: More Organic Exposure On Social

Over five months, GoFundMe campaign pages using Rebel Discovery averaged a 10% lift in social shares each week.


Good To Know: MVPs (Most Valuable Promoters) Come In All Sizes

With Rebel Discovery, GoFundMe had the tech to easily identify social accounts that were moving the needle for key causes, including those with both massive and super-niche audiences. Plus, once engaged, some accounts some shared multiple times!

In November 2016, Rebel Discovery helped organically connect causes to 49 different social referrers, including:

Mexican Gray Wolves (1.2M fans), which shared the MacKenzie Kloka's Mexican Wolf Fund story


Signs of Angels (259K fans), which shared the Veterans for Standing Rock story


Veterans for Bernie Sanders (50K fans), which shared five different campaigns, including the Medical Fund for Sophia Wilansky story


United Cerebral Palsy Association of BC (1.2K fans), which shared Dan's New Trike story


Key Takeaway: Maximize Social + Make A Difference

"We love that Discovery helps us see when large Facebook accounts are sharing our content. Not only does this show that big audiences are being exposed to certain stories, but it also can help us identify trending campaigns that we can help promote to an even wider audience." -- Brittany Cabriales, Media Associate at GoFundMe

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.
