Meet the RebelMouse Platform: The Highest Performing CMS on the Web

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2024.

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 years.

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 Vitals From 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.

Don't lose users to a sluggish website. Publish with the need for speed.

Mastering the Art of Newsletter Subject Lines: Six Tips to Boost Open Rates

If you think about the promotional emails and newsletters in your inbox, they probably seem like a lot of noise. However, email marketing is still one of the most effective ways to generate traffic and turn casual readers into loyal customers. In fact, one study found that for every $1 spent on email marketing, you can expect an average return of $40, which is higher than other digital marketing channels like search and social.

It makes sense, too. If you think about it, most people check their email once a day at a minimum. However, lots of people are active across email throughout the entire workday, and many users check email even earlier than that. Data from OptinMonster shows that more than half of users check their email before doing anything else online for the day.

Engaging 404s: Keep Users on Site With AI-Powered Relevant Content

A 404 page can be a horrible user experience, but it can also be a delightful one. There’s no reason why a 404, also known as a “Page Not Found” error, can’t provide relevant, contextual content based on what the user was originally seeking out. That’s especially true now with the potential for AI to find and surface the best related content.

That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce a solution for this called Engaging 404s. It’s the latest in a string of AI-powered integrations we’ve launched that have improved the editorial and user experiences, including AI headlines, AI search, and AI recirculation. Instead of reaching a traditional “Page Not Found” error message, a user will land on AI-generated search results for the keyword phrase (URL slug) that the page was supposed to deliver on. Instantly, a negative user experience turns into a positive one, with relevant pages that match the user’s click intent.

Content Creation Trends to Watch in 2024

As we approach the halfway point in 2024, it’s a good time to check in on what is making waves in the content creation world. At this point, it’s common knowledge that quality content is the ticket to any successful website, but because the landscape is always changing, just great content isn’t always enough.

For years it felt like creators were constantly pivoting to chase the next social media trend, but now that social platforms have less prevalence than they used to, the world of content creation looks more different than ever before. In fact, a recent study from Gartner found that 50% of consumers plan to abandon or significantly limit their interactions with social media by 2025.
