Inside the Regions Dashboard

You can define different regions and languages on your site by using our Regions Dashboard. To access the dashboard, append the following to your site's URL.

r/dashboard/regions

The Regions Dashboard will look like this:


In the bottom right-hand corner, click the blue plus sign icon to create a new region. You can edit previously created regions by clicking the pencil icon next to the region under the Edit column.

When creating a new region, you can set the region's name, languages, and default language. You will also see two toggles you can turn on and off: Mirrored and Default. If a post is created in a region that is mirrored, it will automatically generate a copy of that post in the other languages assigned to that region. If it's set to default, it will not replicate the post in any other languages.

Here's a screencast of the workflow:

Only users with the Manage Regions permission have access to the Regions Dashboard. Here are some other conditions to keep in mind:

You cannot create duplicate regions. There can only be one region set to be the default:

Similarly, you can only choose a region's default language when it is first created:

Each time a region is created, a community is automatically created with the same name. In the Community Dashboard, you can create a new section within that region:

In Entry Editor, you can assign articles to community sections from the Channels tab located in the right-hand navigation sidebar.

You can assign a post to the community associated with your region in the author field of Entry Editor:

Once assigned, and when you push an article as "Ready to Publish," it will create drafts of the article in the other languages you assigned to the region. You can find the drafts in the Regions and Languages tab of the right-hand navigation sidebar in Entry Editor. Here's a screencast of the workflow:

In your Posts Dashboard, you can display an article's region as its own column:

Remember, if a post is created in a region that is mirrored, it will automatically generate a copy in the other languages of the region. If you have any questions about our Regions Dashboard, email support@rebelmouse.com or talk to your account manager today.

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, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into January 2022:

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.

Here’s What You Need to Know About Google’s Big GA4 Announcement

The search giant said that it’s nixing Universal Analytics for good

The internet was abuzz last week when Google announced that it’s sunsetting its Universal Analytics offering in favor of Google Analytics 4 (GA4). The search giant will stop processing new hits through Universal Analytics on July 1, 2023 (Universal Analytics 360 properties have until October 1, 2023). The news was a shock for site owners and search marketers alike who were not prepared for such a hard deadline.

In its March 16, 2022 announcement, Google said that “Universal Analytics was built for a generation of online measurement that was anchored in the desktop web, independent sessions and more easily observable data from cookies. This measurement methodology is quickly becoming obsolete.”

By contrast, Google says that “Analytics 4 operates across platforms, does not rely exclusively on cookies and uses an event-based data model to deliver user-centric measurement.” Click here to read Google’s full announcement and overview of the differences between GA4 and Universal Analytics.

Why the GA4 Announcement Is a Big Deal
