The Editor in Chief’s Guide to RebelMouse

Everything we've built at RebelMouse has been designed to help Editors in Chief drive sustainable growth. We believe that the only way the publishing industry can survive and thrive is through the powerful work of reporters, writers, editors, and creators. We founded RebelMouse because we hated the quality of the tools that editors and writers were forced to use. That's why we've spent over eight years building, iterating, and refining our platform to make editorial life easier and, more importantly, to support your content successfully. Thousands of creators and hundreds of content teams use our platform every day. We're fast, stable, and intuitive, and we work on mobile, too.


We believe in empowering you and your teams with the data that helps you understand how your content is performing across all platforms. We give you the tools you need to win the search phrases that matter most. We want to help spread the ideas that are worth spreading.

Beautiful Creation and Curation Tools

RebelMouse's Entry Editor makes it simple to create gorgeous, dynamic articles that stand out without sacrificing user experience. We also make curation of social content simple. Your articles will publish easily across Facebook Instant Articles, Google AMP, Apple News, and, of course, on site. We offer advanced features that are easy to enable and encourage your more curious team members to get creative. Multidimensional page designs are easy to build with just a few clicks.

As Editor in Chief, you will never see a more gorgeous, efficient creation space for video, images, articles, products, and endless media integrations.

Empowering SEO Tools That Teach Your Team

RebelMouse creates significant, continuous organic growth because the search optimization tools we built were designed to inform editors and writers on how to win search phrases based on the current state of the algorithms. Our platform gives data back to creators on which phrases were won, and which phrases should be targeted next. Every post should find the audience who would love to read it. This is our mission. We never want to change your content in order to get it to perform. Our goal is for your genuine content to reach the people it deserves.

Proprietary Social Tools That Teach Your Team

RebelMouse has a deep understanding of how organic social traffic is built. The short story: big, on-topic social accounts sharing your content is vital. We have built-in tools to understand the organic relationship opportunities created with every post. When we built The Dodo, we realized how there are hundreds of on-topic social pages with big audiences ready to share content they love. Finding them and creating relationships in an efficient way is easy on RebelMouse. We also enable data-oriented traffic exchanges and outreach for brand sponsorships.

In 2023, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
