RebelMouse Talk to Us
User-Submitted Videos on RebelMouse

At RebelMouse, we believe in growing powerful communities that not only drive engagement, but generate loyal followers. We live in a universe of creators that want to share their own content with your brand.

That's why we offer a page on our platform that accepts uploads and submissions from users that can create very valuable assets, allowing you to remix and reuse with crediting and rights in place.


Creating one for your site is easy for us. It simply requires some services hours to customize the page for your site.

Submissions Interface

To make it simple to implement, you can match the above layout with your design and wording. Then we'll take your input and snap it into your RebelMouse site.

We support uploading photos, videos, articles, and links from YouTube and Vimeo.

Project Estimate

  • Design: 5 hours
  • Development: 5 hours

Moderation Interface

RebelMouse also offers a moderation hub to keep all the user-generated content out of your production site. The submitted content is still connected to your site, so you can easily feature anything that you like in production. This is simply a way to help keep your workflow organized.

Project Estimate

  • Setup and Training: 5 hours

Promoting the Submission Feature on Site

Promoting the feature on site is easy to do because the promotion has its own landing page. One way to promote it that we like is by featuring a "breaking" banner at the top of your site. Here's an example of this shown on our client Dance Magazine's site:

Project Estimate

  • Design: 5 hours
  • Development: 5 hours

Promoting the Submission Feature on Facebook

It's also easy to promote video submissions via an embed on Facebook. The process involves setting up a tab and is only eligible for pages with 2,000 fans or more.

This is what the video submission iframe looks like once set up:

Project Estimate

  • Design: 2 hours
  • Development: 3 hours
  • Configuring Facebook: 2 hours

Project Timeline

Following mutual agreement on specs and designs, the project should take 2–3 weeks of back-and-forth collaboration, implementation, and training to launch.

RebelMouse Q1 2021 Platform Updates

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market. In fact, we invested over $100,000 worth of hours into our platform in Q1 2021 alone. This has resulted in updates and performance enhancements that publishers would have to pay for on their own to make happen on any other platform, such as WordPress. We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Here are the major updates that we've added to the platform in Q1.

how to make images seo friendly
Rebel Insights

Keep Search a Priority With SEO-Friendly Image Filenames

There are a lot of factors that go into a successful search engine optimization (SEO) strategy, including performance, structured data, and, of course, choosing the right keyword(s). Our proprietary search technology helps content creators prep every article for success on search. This all-encompassing approach includes the use of SEO-friendly image filenames.

On RebelMouse, if you assign an alt tag to an image in Entry Editor, that alt tag will also become the image's file name. Briefly, alt tags describe images for search engines, and also allow people using screen readers to know what the image is without actually being able to see it. Adding your desired search phase to every alt text field, and in turn every image file name, will reinforce its relevance to Google's crawler, bringing you one step closer to the top of search returns.

Fuel a Data-Driven Content Strategy With Google Search Console Insights

At RebelMouse, we believe a data-driven content strategy is the key to success. Luckily, the era of "post and pray" is far behind us. Creators no longer need to create articles blindly and hope that they are successful. There are now tools that can help creators understand the kind of content that resonates with their desired audiences.

That's why we are excited to let you know about Google Search Console's Insights feature. According to Google, this new data view will help content creators and site owners answer the following questions:

  • What are your best performing pieces of content?
  • How are your new pieces of content performing?
  • How do people discover your content across the web?
  • What do people search for on Google Search before they visit your content?
  • Which article refers users to your website and content?
