RebelMouse Talk to Us
RebelMouse’s Technical SEO Influencer Program

If you’re a search engine optimization (SEO) expert, we know you can do a stellar job of juggling a lot of tasks. That’s because there’s no magic key to unlocking a winning search strategy. High performance on search requires a deep understanding of how Google indexes and ranks content, as well as the flexibility to adapt to its frequent changes.

Today, SEO professionals aren’t just amazing content marketers. They double as savants when it comes to the technical aspects of SEO, which is often a piece of the puzzle that gets overlooked. If you are an SEO consultant, you know how frustrating it can be to make important suggestions to clients that never get implemented, and often, it’s the same problems over and over.

That’s why RebelMouse has decided to launch a Technical SEO Influencer Program to help SEO experts get access to the right technology that better showcases their talents. We know that you can do more for your clients on the right platform, and that’s where RebelMouse comes in.

What Is RebelMouse?

RebelMouse is a content management system (CMS) and creative agency that drives better traffic, conversion, and revenue for publishers and brands through amazing website performance. Our platform was built by the former CTO of HuffPost, who was a pioneer in understanding search traffic. We understand that quality content isn’t enough to succeed anymore, because it also takes smart strategies to generate meaningful traffic.

RebelMouse technology includes a rich SEO toolset that guides content creators to think about the right search phrase behind every story. It also empowers users to focus on small but meaningful modifications designed to improve organic search performance.

Since our platform was created in the age of search, we’ve developed a publishing experience that’s not bound by plugins that need to be constantly updated and often conflict with each other. Our site network is self-updating, which means that all of our game-changing SEO features come out of the box with no add-ons required.

Alt Text on Every Image

Alt text is very important for accessibility, and can also have benefits for SEO. Briefly, alt text (or alternative text) is text that is added to an image to describe it to search engines. It also allows people using screen readers to be able to know what the image is without actually being able to see it. You can easily add alt text to any image in RebelMouse from our Entry Editor. Adding your search phase into every alt text field helps bring you one step closer to the top of Google Search's first page. Click here to learn more.


A sitemap is a file where you list the webpages of your site that tells Google and other search engines about the organization of your site's content. Search engine web crawlers like Googlebot read this file so that your site gets crawled intelligently. If your site's pages are properly linked, Google's web crawlers can usually discover most of your site, which means better indexing and performance on search. Click here to learn more.

Google Search Console Integration and Support

We offer full support to help our clients connect their sites to Google Search Console. Our strategy services also help you understand which content and site layouts are working the best for your audience through our custom Google Data Studio dashboards.

404/Redirect Dashboard

The open web is full of lost opportunities. Something as small as a typo can cause a 404 error on your site. RebelMouse gives you seamless power and control over errors in our easy-to-use 404 Dashboard. Learn more.

Particle Assembler

RebelMouse's Particle Assembler is a content creation tool within our Entry Editor that makes it easy to transform your posts into micro pieces of media-rich content, which we call particles, that can both be shared individually and crawled separately for search. Assembler is a helpful SEO tool because it can generate a unique URL slug for each particle, maximizing your article's ability to get indexed by Google for more than one key search phrase.

Click here to learn more about this feature.

H1 Tags

For SEO purposes, H1 tags are designed to win a specific search phrase for your page. In fact, a recent study from Moz found that the HTML title tag is the second-most important ranking factor for SEO, behind only the actual content of the post. Click here to learn how we automatically optimize content for the right H1 tag.

Canonical URLs

A canonical URL is an HTML element that prevents duplicate content. This helps prevent SEO issues by indicating whether a URL is a "canonical" or "preferred" version of a page.

You can set canonical URLs directly from our editing interface. Learn more.

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.

In 2022, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2022 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.

It’s been more than two years since Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals metrics are the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results. Developers have since 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.

Now, the definition of what makes up Core Web Vitals could change. A new responsiveness metric called Interaction to Next Paint (INP) may replace First Input Delay (FID). During Google’s I/O conference in May 2022, it was announced that the INP metric was still in its experimental phase. You can watch the announcement here:

Improve Your Site’s Load Time: Google Launches Signed Exchanges for Desktop

There’s been an important launch from Google that can help improve your site’s load time — signed exchanges (SXG) are now available on desktop. According to Google, SXG is a delivery mechanism that can help improve your Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) score by enabling privacy-preserving, cross-origin prefetch.

What’s an LCP score? The LCP metric is one of Google’s Core Web Vitals that determines your site’s performance. A page’s LCP score is determined by how long it takes Google to load the "above the fold" content of your site. This includes all content in the first viewport of a page, such as images, fonts, ads, and embeds. Click here to learn more.

Since SXG uses a cache to prefetch content that has been cryptographically signed by the origin, it helps speed up cross-origin navigations from referrer sites while also ensuring that pages remain unaltered and properly attributed, according to Google. To put it more simply, in certain browsers, the referrer site (Google) and destination site (your page) share cached information which increases your site’s ability to load quickly.
