NEW! Edit Media Tool for Post Images

It's no secret that imagery is critical to creating a compelling post. A captivating visual is what really helps drive shares and engagement on social. That's why we're constantly updating and creating new tools that enable you to create the perfect image-centric post. Meet the new Edit Media tool.


With the Edit Media tool, we've revamped how users can edit images and GIFs that are uploaded and/or inserted into the body of a post. Much like editing lead media, you now have the ability to crop images and GIFs within the body of a post using the same preset dimensions (2x1, 3x1, 3x2, 2x1, 16x9). This new interface makes it super easy, and even goes full screen on mobile to make editing a breeze.

Here are some benefits of using the Edit Media tool:

  1. Improved image and GIF optimization and a better display of your content.
  2. Because you can choose which crop size you prefer by default in the Layout and Design tool, you now have full control over how images and GIFs are displayed on all devices. This is a powerful combo!
The Highest-Quality Images Around
We've increased the quality of processed images (PNGs especially) so that they're even clearer and display immaculately across all devices. This includes PNG files with transparent backgrounds, animated GIFs, and more. We've also included a custom crop feature that allows you to skip the predefined ratios and choose your own crop size instead. Check out the video below to see this in action.

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, frequently reports on how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse has consistently outperformed major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics throughout the year:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web VitalsFrom Ahrefs.

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.
