Stay on Top of Actionable Insights With RebelMouse’s Third-Party Analytics Integrations Dashboard

Leverage a data-backed content strategy

The amount of work that goes into creating quality content is half the battle. For publishers, an effective content strategy must be backed by data. Still, distributive publishing brings with it plenty of insights to keep track of, and sometimes key metrics can get lost in the day-to-day workflow.

On the RebelCMS, we have a dedicated dashboard to make it super easy to integrate third-party analytics scripts into your site. This way you can keep an eye on how your articles are performing and easily adjust your strategy accordingly.


By navigating to /core/dashboard/stats/thirdparty on your site, you can quickly input IDs for the following analytics providers:

  • Google Analytics
    • For your whole site
    • Support for Google Analytics Reporting API v4
    • Specifically for Facebook Instant Articles
  • Chartbeat
  • Comscore
  • Parse.ly

You can have this implemented in just a few clicks, and you can easily update or delete these settings as needed. Here are more details on the types of tracking that are available for specific publishing formats:

AMP Tracking

For all of the analytics providers listed above, we track pageviews in AMP as well. We also track pageviews for particles in Google Analytics — for the rest of the providers listed this is not supported, so we simply track one page view per post.

Facebook Instant Articles Tracking

In Facebook's case, as outlined above, we also track pageviews for posts in Google Analytics, Comscore, and Chartbeat. However, we're not able to track pageviews for particles at the moment since Facebook doesn't yet support it — we simply track one page view per post.

Apple News Tracking

For the time being, none of the providers listed above track pageviews in Apple News. You can find this information in Apple News' native stats dashboard instead.

If you have any questions about using the Third-Party Analytics dashboard, please contact support@rebelmouse.com or 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 2022:

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.
