How to Test Content With Articles and Templates

At RebelMouse, we believe creative teams are successful when collaborative ideas can be easily tested and turned into strategic choices quickly. However, content creators are already pinched for time, and deploying a test on a new site approach or design can mean an entirely new set of tasks to contend with.

Our publishing platform streamlines this process by offering multivariate testing at scale, which includes content testing on articles and templates.


Testing Articles

To test an article, create a test version of the post in Entry Editor and hide it in a private section. A private section will still publish the test article to your site, but it will be inaccessible to readers. Keep in mind that your test article needs to be listed only in private sections to keep it truly hidden from users.

Testing Templates

Templates are created in the Layout & Design Tool. You can create a template for many areas of your site, including the home page, the post page, the section page, and so on. On post pages, the content within an article is populated by whatever you enter in Entry Editor and styled by what you configure in Layout & Design Tool.

You can also create a new template for A/B testing on any page in the Layout & Design Tool. Once created, you can then create a new URL to run the template as a B test. Click here for full instructions.

If you have any questions about testing content, email support@rebelmouse.com or talk to your account manager today.

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 January 2022:

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.

Why Affiliate Marketing Is the #1 E-commerce Choice for Media Companies

RebelMouse offers its intuitive e-commerce tech without a total site replatform

The COVID-19 pandemic solidified the prominence of e-commerce as the top way to shop instead of just a popular alternative to brick-and-mortar stores. In fact, it's estimated that 95% of purchases will be made online by 2040. But not every company is an e-commerce company. So how can publishers of all types capitalize on the hot online shopping market?

Luckily, the flexibility of the open web means that there are user-friendly paths to securing e-commerce revenue without actually selling products of your own. One of the best ways to achieve this is through affiliate marketing.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what will be covered in this article:

Optimizing TikTok Embeds to Reduce CLS Penalties

TikTok has become one of, if not the most popular social media platform. They're fun, they're fast, and anyone can have fun with them, and we have worked very hard to make it super easy for writers and editors to embed them by simply dropping a link into our Add Media Bar.
