RebelMouse Talk to Us

The RebelMouse publishing platform is built to launch social web properties for distributed content, and ultimately convert organic visitors into loyal, lasting audiences.


For most client use cases, the entire content lifecycle, including creation, publication, distribution and optimization, occurs within RebelMouse. In certain cases, clients may seek to pull data from RebelMouse into an external environment, such as an iOS and/or Android app, a separate web-property, a social widget, or another third-party environment.

Depending of the end-goal, clients seeking to source content and/or metadata from RebelMouse into an existing digital environment can leverage RebelMouse's API to do so.

Flexible Applications and Use Cases

The RebelMouse API is a platform-agnostic, REST API that returns data in JSON format.

Regardless of whether your web and/or mobile instance is built on WordPress, Drupal, Adobe Experience Manager, Sitecore, Ruby on Rails, Python, Objective C, Java, or Swift, all use cases for content and metadata ingestion are universally supported.

Mobile Apps

While RebelMouse can design and develop custom mobile apps, many clients may already have an existing iOS and/or Android app that they would like to infuse with content being created and produced within the RebelMouse platform. Mobile developers can leverage our API to deliver a custom presentation of metadata stored in the RebelMouse database.

Custom Front-End Implementations

Clients may also want to use RebelMouse as their publishing back-end, while leveraging a custom front-end that is not powered by RebelMouse. Through our API, clients can make API calls to source and feed content metadata into their custom front-end web solution.

Social Widgets

Clients may also utilize certain social features (aggregation, sharing) of RebelMouse without leveraging the full publishing platform. Creating custom social widgets within a web property can be achieved by calling our API for the required metadata.

Content Metadata

Our API provides metadata for content published on a RebelMouse-powered property, including (but not limited to) the following metadata types:

  • Title:
  • Body text:
  • Tag(s):
  • URL:
  • Social headline:
  • Social description:
  • Author name:
  • Author photo:
  • Author bio:
  • SEO headline:
  • SEO keywords:
  • SEO description:
  • Post/Article ID:

Supported API Calls

The RebelMouse API currently supports calls for the following content sets and criteria. Please note that “post" is defined as an individual content entity:

  • Frontpage Posts
  • Posts by Section
  • Posts by Author
  • Posts by Tags
  • Post Details

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.
