How to Use 1Password to Protect Your Site + Connect RebelMouse to Google Analytics and Search Console

1Password is RebelMouse's preferred method to securely store and transfer login credentials. Fundamental to understanding 1Password is the concept of "vaults." RebelMouse will create a new vault for your company. In this vault, you will not only find the passwords we want you to have access to, but you'll also use your vault to add credentials you want to share with/transfer to RebelMouse. This way, anytime you need to share a password with us, you can add it to your company vault and vice versa.


To begin, you'll receive an email from your account manager inviting you into our 1Password system. You can ask for invitations for several users on your side if you wish. Follow the instructions provided by your account manager to set up your account. It's important to note that you should write down your master password in a secure location as this will be important to have for future logins.

How to Set up 1Password

You can use 1Password entirely in your browser if you wish. The directions will be the same. If you don't want to use your browser to access 1Password, here's how to download and install 1Password's app:

  1. Click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of your 1Password account.
  2. Select Get the Apps.
  3. Choose the appropriate download for your system.
  4. Install the downloaded file, and follow the instruction prompts to complete the setup process.

Adding Details and Passwords to 1Password

Click on [Your Company Vault] to access the system. This is where you'll see all of the project's relevant credentials stored. This is also where you'll add your own credentials if necessary.

To add a new entry, click the + button on the bottom (or top) of the screen.

A pop-up window will appear with many different options for the types of things you can store, including logins, passwords, and secure notes.

Typically, you will select Login. You can now enter the relevant information into 1Password. The most relevant will be username, password, website (URL of where you log in), and, if applicable, notes.

You can now view, add, edit, or delete credentials in your company vault. Please keep in mind that we only give temporary access to vaults during the time frame in which we need to share credentials with each other.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Analytics Account

Sign in to your Google Analytics account. Click the gear icon in the bottom left-hand corner, and then make sure you're in the ADMIN tab. In the account, property, or view column (depending upon whether you want to add users at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.

In the list of users, click +, and then click Add users.

Next, enter the email address for the user's Google account. (RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added.) Select Notify new users by email to send a message to the user(s) when you're done. Finally, select the permissions you want the user(s) to have and then click Add.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Google Search Console Account

Owners have full control over properties in Google Search Console. They can add and remove other users, configure settings, view all data, and use all tools. If you want to give someone limited access, add them as a user instead.

How to Add an Owner

To add another user as an owner, or upgrade someone's status from user to owner, open your Webmaster Central page. Then choose a property, scroll down to the Verified owners section, and click Add an owner.

Next, add in the new owner's user information and click Continue. Finally, ask the new owner to add the property to their property list.

How to Add a New User

Choose a property in your Google Search Console account. Next, click Settings (gear icon) and then select Users and permissions. From there, click ADD USER and type in the email address of the user you want to add — RebelMouse will inform you of which email addresses need to be added — and select the permission the user should have:

  • Full: Has view rights to all data and can take some actions.
  • Restricted: Has simple view rights on most data.

Finally, click ADD. The property will be added to the new user's Google Search Console account automatically.

How to Give RebelMouse Access to Your Mailchimp Account

Follow these instructions to add a user to your Mailchimp account. The various permissions and what they can do are described on Mailchimp's "Invite A User" page. The available permissions are Viewer, Author, Manager, and Admin.

First, log in to Mailchimp. Click your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Then, click Account. Next, click Settings, and then Users.

Next, click Invite a User.

Why Premium Creative Agencies and CTOs Choose to Develop on RebelMouse vs. WordPress and Drupal

The Intersection of Design and Development: Where Your Clients Thrive

We started RebelMouse seven years ago knowing that there was a fundamental design flaw in the world of traditional CMSs: Every instance, on every platform, had to be updated independently. It's similar to an era when users had to manage their own Microsoft Exchange Server for email. The costs of managing, maintaining, and iterating on a CMS to keep it awesome and world class is typically a $10 million-a-year endeavor. But even then, these cost-prohibitive CMSs are still behind the times.

Native Multivariate Testing at Scale With RebelMouse

What Differentiates Our Approach

There are many popular tools that allow you to perform experiments and A/B tests on your users — primarily Google Chrome Experiments and Optimizely. But all of these solutions are JavaScript additions to your web page that sidestep the problem of old, outdated, and clumsy CMSs. These solutions work by calling on a third-party JavaScript library that rewrites a page after it's rendered. This approach adds extra page weight and creates strange user experiences due to having to wait for everything to load and be rewritten on the fly.

At RebelMouse, we've solved this in a very elegant way. At the core level of our platform, we can natively render different layouts and track the exact differences in performance when comparing a test to your other layouts.

How to Monetize Your Website in Today’s Publishing Environment

In order to define distributive publishing, we have to ask the following question: If you have quality content, but nobody sees it, does it even exist? The answer is no, because your content needs to be supported in a way that lets it move seamlessly across all channels, especially site, search, and social. But let's take this question a step further: If you can't monetize your content to generate the support it needs, how do you create quality content in the first place?

How to Monetize Your Site on RebelMouse

Leverage Our Platform to Sell Digital Ads That Overperform

For years now, digital publishers have experienced a collective push to diversify their revenue streams. As online readership becomes more complex, publishers cannot rely on a one-trick monetization method to secure success.

The COVID-19 crisis in 2020 was an even bigger wake-up call for publishers to create a dynamic revenue plan. The timing of the pandemic aligned with the new reality of a cookie-less world, which has completely reprioritized user experience and what it means to build audience loyalty. This means in 2021, publishers need a solid first-party data strategy and a modern revenue plan that can withstand more months of uncertainty to come.

How Site Performance Shifted in 2020: RebelMouse Page Speed Updates

Google updated how it measures page performance during the pandemic. Here's how our product changed, too.

2020 was a year that shook every industry to its core. As workforces and workflows everywhere shifted, the digital publishing space was left to pick up the pieces of what it means to create content in a pandemic-filled world.

At RebelMouse, we examined the impact of COVID-19 on marketing strategies. You can read more about our findings here. However, as we round out a turbulent year, some publishers think 2020 will be a positive turning point for the industry overall. More people at home and being online has increased the need for quality content more than ever. Audiences are paying attention to where and how they consume content, and advertisers are taking notice of this pattern change, too.

Because of this, content deliverability is what will define what makes a successful publisher in 2020 and beyond. Audiences will only tolerate quality content, and they will only consume it on a site that provides a next-level site experience.
