Assembler Features: A Guide to Optimized Content

When we launched our Assembler, our goal was to make it a snap to create one of the most popular content formats on the web. Assemblers are eye-catching, easy to read, and — most importantly — users love to share them. Here is an overview of the Assembler's main features, including ad integrations.


Access Assembler from Entry Editor:

Pagination

You can break your particle into pages, and decide how many items should show up per page. And if you have a particular use case where you don't want to split up your items evenly between pages, you have the flexibility of defining the exact division.

Ads

How ads are inserted between each item in your listicle follows the same logic as Pagination. For example, you could have your ads:

  • Break every item. This would display as follows: item, ad, item, ad, item, ad, etc.
  • Break in a specific order. If we chose "2,3,4,1," it would display as follows: two items, ad, three items, ad, four items, ad, item, ad.

Numeration

You can have your listicle appear as either a numerated list sorted ascending/descending, or a non-numerated list.

Body Text

This allows you to define where you want your text to show up, which can be either above or below your media.

Customize

You can further customize your Assembler with our Layout & Design tool. This includes:

1. Setting up Global Settings for it, so you only have to choose pagination, ad tags, text position, and numeration once instead of per Assembler in Entry Editor every time you create a listicle.

2. Applying custom CSS to the elements in Assembler. You can do this by going to the Post page, selecting the Body element, and then clicking on the Styles card:

You can customize Assembler's title, links, and even the pagination. Here's an example of one way things can appear on your site:

And, as an example, if you wanted to customize your buttons to look like this instead:

You'd have to make the following edits to the CSS properties and values in the Styles card that we mentioned above:

Assembler in AMP

Assembler items also work on AMP, although it is important to note that links within images won't work when fullscreen is activated on mobile. The user will need to click the image in order to view it in fullscreen.

Happy assembling, Rebels!

RebelMouse Q1 2021 Platform Updates

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market. In fact, we invested over $100,000 worth of hours into our platform in Q1 2021 alone. This has resulted in updates and performance enhancements that publishers would have to pay for on their own to make happen on any other platform, such as WordPress. We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Here are the major updates that we've added to the platform in Q1.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
