Why RebelMouse Is so Fast

Quality content has always been the secret key to unlocking a winning digital strategy. While this remains true, it's now incredibly hard for content to be successful if it isn't delivered alongside speed.

Over the past few years, Google has made page speed a top priority for all sites on the open web. However, the search engine drew a hard line in the sand when it announced its Core Web Vitals metrics. Core Web Vitals are three measurements of a site's performance that make up what's now called a page experience ranking. A poor page experience score could mean huge hits to your site traffic.

Elevate Your Strategy With Speed

Think about it: Most users are just as smart as industry insiders now, and this means it's important to give them the most memorable experience with your content as possible. If not, they'll find it elsewhere. Page speed is just as important for high visibility on search as it is crucial for building loyalty. The logic is simple: A user base that knows they're in for a quality experience every time they visit your site will keep coming back. You would be surprised how much your site can grow in just 30 days when it's optimized correctly for performance.

Page speed is measured primarily through Google's PageSpeed Insights tool. We deliver scores of 90+ for all of the sites on our platform. If you aren't familiar with what this means, here's a look at how top sites not on RebelMouse score via PageSpeed Insights. Click here for more information on what each of these metrics mean:

  • We employ an amazingly sophisticated, multi-region Amazon Web Services (AWS) setup that auto scales, alerts, monitors, and notifies.

Editorial Efficiency

  • At RebelMouse, we believe it's not just the page speed or reader experience that needs to be fast. We also value every minute of a writer or editor's time.
  • Other CMS platforms often make writers do inefficient things that slow down the growth of the company. We subscribe to the mantra that content is king, and writers are the lifeblood of the kingdom.
  • We love social teams, too. We give you a fighter jet to use when other CMS solutions provide you with the Wright brothers' plane.

Data-Driven Product Cycle

  • Our testing includes how each version impacts page speed and user experience.
  • We then take those results and see how they correlate with bounce rate, time on site, pages per session, and conversion to goals — such as new shares, subscriptions, and purchases.
