Multi-Domain Publishing

There are a variety of reasons to own more than one domain. You may want to protect your brand and buy key domain extensions for your URL (.com, .net, .org). Or your business may operate across key global markets and require certain content be mirrored across sites (.com, .co.uk, .au). Either way, the RebelMouse Multi-Domain feature makes it easy for you to publish across different domains and seamlessly integrate into your team's workflow.



Product Requirements
Multi-domain publishing is only available to Roar customers, where RebelMouse will manage the setup for your team.

Copy Published Posts to a Different Domain

  • Go to the published article you want to copy
  • Click on the 'Copy' button at the top left corner of the post promo. This will open up the entry editor so you can work on the copied post and publish as a completely new post

Note: All the search and social optimizations made in the original post will be copied over as well.

Assign Posts to a Domain
After you make edits, check off the domains to publish the new post. In the entry editor, your channel options will be organized by domain first, then the sections associated with those specific sites:

  1. Domain: Checking off the domain (i.e. USA or UK) will have the post appear on the homepage of the site
  2. Sections: Checking off the Sections below the country will have the post appear on those specific pages
  3. Primary Section: When you hover over the Domain or Section you will see the option to set it as “Primary." This will allow you to choose the category title to appear on the promo card of the post, if applicable

Assign Drafts to a Domain
Stages ensure that your drafts go through the proper workflow before becoming published. Each domain has a designated draft stage so that your team can easily assign and view the right drafts.

Example of stage setup:

Quickly Tag a New or Published Post to Multiple Domains
When tagging a new post or an already published post to multiple domains, the post will simply be published in those domains/sections you've checked off. The only thing that will change is the domain shown in the URL. This is useful for publishing a post that doesn't need to be edited differently for each domain

Original post published to '.com' domain:

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.

The Subscription Model Is Taking off and Competition Has Never Been Steeper

The Subscription Model Is Taking off and Competition Has Never Been Steeper

The post-pandemic user landscape is still ripe for subscription revenue

You can get a subscription for everything these days. Whether it’s a cheese-of-the-month club or annual access to read your favorite content, the subscription-based model has continued to gain steam in recent years. In fact, the market for digital subscriptions is valued at $650 billion according to a new report from Lineup, a subscription management solution.

The power of the subscription model has been growing since even before the COVID-19 crisis began, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing as we enter a post-pandemic landscape. According to What’s New in Publishing, Gannett reported a 46% year-over-year increase in digital subscriptions in November 2021, putting them at 1.5M total subscribers. Hearst grew its digital subscriptions by 50% in 2021.

But subscriptions aren’t just for big name publishers. Users in 2022 are ready to pay up for legacy names and new media companies alike, as long as it’s for an experience that’s beneficial to them, reliable, and free of the clutter that can come from third-party platforms. Speaking of platforms, even TikTok and Instagram have started to gauge their audiences’ temperature on subscription experiences. So, the competition has never been steeper for publishers looking to build a subscriber base. Unfortunately, launching a simple paywall may not be enough.

Engagement on the Rise: Why It’s Your Ticket to Loyalty

Engagement on the Rise: Why It’s Your Ticket to Loyalty

New data from Chartbeat shows engagement time is increasing despite traffic dips

Getting users to your site is only half the battle. For publishers, it’s now become more critical to focus on how long those users stay on your site — and if they ever come back. Q1 2022 data analyzed by Chartbeat found that engagement is on the rise, even though metrics like pageviews and mobile traffic experienced a decline.

Chartbeat measures engaged time by the “amount of time that readers spend actively engaging with a page — scrolling, clicking, or moving their mouse.” With this in mind, their data showed that most regions in the world registered an average of 30 seconds of engaged time on site in Q1. Readers in Latin America led the results with an average of 34.7 seconds of engaged time.
