RebelMouse’s upLynk Video Integration

RebelMouse has partnered with Verizon Media on a new video integration. Verizon has a streaming platform called upLynk which THEOplayer uses as part of its video playback offering. THEOplayer allows users to play videos in different formats by integrating with different partners.

On RebelMouse, you can now search through upLynk's library for videos to feature on your site.


This integration works similarly to our Add Media Bar search function. Here's a screencast of the workflow:

The upLynk integration is not available out of the box by default. If you're interested in implementing it on your site, contact your account manager today and provide them with details about your upLynk account, including:

upLynk User ID: Located in Settings → User Settings

upLynk API Key: Located in Settings → Integration Keys

upLynk Ad Configuration Name: Located in Settings → Ad Server

THEOplayer Library Location: To locate this, navigate to your THEOplayer Dashboard and locate the CDN Library Location of the SDK.

Currently, our upLynk integration only supports pre-roll ads. Teaser images for videos are managed in upLynk's Poster Image field:

Verizon also provides embed codes for videos that you can use without THEOplayer.

For more information on this integration, 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 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.
