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,, .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:

Post tagged to '' domain"

Easily Unearth Information by Domain
Whether you're looking for stats, drafts, or only published posts for a particular domain, RebelMouse makes it easy for admins to get the right information quickly.

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.

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.
