NEW: RebelMouse Native Comments with Notifications

Content creation is never static. To build an audience, it's important to ensure that your content is not only dynamic, but sparks a conversation.

That's why we have native comments with notifications on RebelMouse articles. If a reader comments on a story, they'll receive a notification when another user replies to it.

Here's what RebelMouse notifications look like:

Web administrators have to approve replies to comments via our comments dashboard.

No comments will be displayed and no users will be notified until a reply that's been posted is deemed appropriate and is approved. If a comment is banned or rejected, the submitting user will not get notified, and their reply won't be visible to anyone.

There are 3 types of basic controls for comments:

Check: approves the comment.
X: rejects/bans the comment. The original commenter who posted it can see it, but the rest of the community won't.
Heart: features the comment at the top of the commenting list in the post it was written on.

Take a look at the tutorial below on how the comments dashboard works:

If desired, our native comments set up can also include star ratings for users. This allows you to highlight the best community members by featuring their comments and save time around the worst members by categorizing them with low stars and hiding their comments efficiently.

You can read more about star ratings and community features here.

If you have any questions about this update, contact your account manager. Happy conversing, Rebels!

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.
