Multi-Domain Publishing

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:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FJI4Yrx5IJr08J9rG6arKls_uOh3VfaHkWm7SOabfFzvlywR_UPYTFRVQWO01hJ34Se1Jzxhet8Q2J1LjiHWQxVzw6cxdrk1jT9eGpvTc51eym4D7Omzsn9OrQaYG5uCz-DseXM85lg&ho=https%3A%2F%2Flh4.googleusercontent.com&s=185&h=87ef68c122f0acc506fa792977f93cde0b0520d831f4addba703cf5b1ba08627&size=980x&c=3745977252 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FJI4Yrx5IJr08J9rG6arKls_uOh3VfaHkWm7SOabfFzvlywR_UPYTFRVQWO01hJ34Se1Jzxhet8Q2J1LjiHWQxVzw6cxdrk1jT9eGpvTc51eym4D7Omzsn9OrQaYG5uCz-DseXM85lg%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Flh4.googleusercontent.com%26s%3D185%26h%3D87ef68c122f0acc506fa792977f93cde0b0520d831f4addba703cf5b1ba08627%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3745977252%22%7D" caption="" pin_description="" image-library="0" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

  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:

Avoid Diluting Your SEO With RebelMouse
Using multiple domain names has the potential to dilute the equity of your content and your website, essentially causing you to compete with yourself. For posts with similar content across multiple domains, a best practice is to build canonical URLs into the the HTML of the post, which helps communicate the preferred URL to search engines. The RebelMouse platform automatically helps you avoid SEO self-sabotage by only pulling the canonical URL when the post is copied.

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.

Today's social ecosystem has given us a seemingly limitless number of premium creators who understand how to create gorgeous and relevant content that drives the growth of their own audiences.

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?

RebelMouse Q3 2021 Platform Performance Updates

For many publishers and brands, Q3 2021 was about recovering web traffic lost to Google's page experience signals update that was rolled out over the summer. For us, the quarter was about continuing our success of delivering excellent Core Web Vitals metrics across our site network with platform performance updates both big and small.

As a globally distributed team, it's important for us to remain transparent about how we're able to power some of the best-performing sites on the open web. And while we're already looking forward to closing out the year stronger than ever before, here's a detailed look back at our accomplishments in Q3 2021.

We invested 1,946 hours into our platform in Q3 2021 alone, and all of the sites on our platform benefited from the work in various ways. Here are the key areas that we focused on:

RebelMouse Clients See Performance Improvement After AMP Optimization

Performance is a major pillar of our platform, which means we are always making changes — both big and small — to improve page speed. Our focus on fast websites isn't platform specific, either. We want to make sure that users have a top-notch experience however they view your content, and this includes our integration with Google's AMP format.

Our team of traffic-obsessed developers recently implemented some performance optimizations to enhance our platform's integration with AMP, and that has improved the average response time for our clients. This means that users are able to access your AMP pages more quickly, which, in turn, improves your site's traffic from Google.

Here's a breakdown of the changes we've made:

Keep Search a Priority With SEO-Friendly Image Filenames

There are a lot of factors that go into a successful search engine optimization (SEO) strategy, including performance, structured data, and, of course, choosing the right keyword(s). Our proprietary search technology helps content creators prep every article for success on search. This all-encompassing approach includes the use of SEO-friendly image filenames.

On RebelMouse, if you assign an alt tag to an image in Entry Editor, that alt tag will also become the image's file name. Briefly, alt tags describe images for search engines, and also allow people using screen readers to know what the image is without actually being able to see it. Adding your desired search phase to every alt text field, and in turn every image file name, will reinforce its relevance to Google's crawler, bringing you one step closer to the top of search returns.
