NEW! Publish Button Upgrade

We're happy to announce a small but significant design change to the interface within our CMS: We've upgraded the Publish button!

Your editorial team is certainly familiar with the previous version:

So we wanted to make sure to give you a clear explanation for the change that you can share with your colleagues.


The New Button

We wanted the Publish button to mimic the style you've already learned to use and love in the Schedule Social Posts tab of the Entry Editor. Now all of the most important publishing options available to you are combined in one spot.

We've added a separator between the Publish button and the dropdown menu's arrow to keep things intuitive, and to help en sure that none of your articles go out before they're finalized.

If you ever do click Publish by mistake, don't panic! Remember that you always have the option to move a published post back to a draft by using the Draft option that's located under Post Status in the Advanced Settings tab of the Entry Editor:

The Benefits of This Upgrade

A couple of the most frequently asked questions we get during training is "How do I save my draft?" and "Where do I schedule a post to go live on a later date?"

This new Publish button not only unifies the user experience with other features, but it also presents all of your options when it comes to publishing and handling the circulation of your content.

The Four Options

For our most-seasoned clients, what the four options available within the new Publish button do might seem obvious, but let's have a quick run through them anyway so they're crystal clear:

Publish / Update: Publishes the article to your site.
If the article is already published, you'll see that the button says 'Update' instead.

Save: Saves the article you're working on as a draft.

Preview: Allows you to preview your article so you can check out how it will look on a device, how images are rendering, and if your markup has been applied correctly.

Schedule: Opens up a small calendar that will allow you to choose a date and time for when the article should go live.

RebelMouse Q1 2021 Platform Updates

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market. In fact, we invested over $100,000 worth of hours into our platform in Q1 2021 alone. This has resulted in updates and performance enhancements that publishers would have to pay for on their own to make happen on any other platform, such as WordPress. We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Here are the major updates that we've added to the platform in Q1.

how to make images seo friendly
Rebel Insights

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.

That's why we are excited to let you know about Google Search Console's Insights feature. According to Google, this new data view will help content creators and site owners answer the following questions:

  • What are your best performing pieces of content?
