RebelMouse & Parse.ly Integration

Are you using Parse.ly to track your content analytics? Well good news! We've recently completed an integration with Parse.ly that allows you to easily connect your RebelMouse system to your Parse.ly instance.


How Do I Set It Up

This is the super easy part! All you need to do is access your stats dashboard inside of RebelMouse, and add your Parse.ly ID. To do this, you simple open up your hamburger menu and find Stats:

Now you can select from the top menu, 3rd Party Analytics:

From here you simply add your ID and click the Add button:

What Is Tracked?

In order to give you as accurate data as possible we track three different types of pages:

  • Regular post pages: These are articles that are viewed on your website (mobile, desktop, or tablet)
  • AMP pages: These are articles that are viewed in Google's AMP format. AMP pages are generally accessed when a user searches via Google search on a mobile device. Some social networks, like Twitter, will also push users to AMP pages when they click on a link.
  • Facebook Instant Articles: These are articles that are viewed in Facebook's Instant Article format. Instant Articles are accessed when a user is browsing in the Facebook app on mobile. Please note that by default, we are only able to track new Instant Article views. If you'd like to track older articles, we would need to run a script to enable that. Please contact your account manager or support@rebelmouse.com if you need that tracking.

And that's it! You're now ready to track your content analytics between RebelMouse and Parse.ly. Happy tracking!

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.
