Wordpress Import Tool: how to bring all your content to our DCMS

If you have content on your old site that you want to migrate over to your new RebelMouse powered property, you can swiftly do that with our Wordpress Import Tool.
 

We have two instances where you can import your WP articles:
 

1) During sign up, when you're creating your new RebelRunner. (scroll down to #2 if this is not your case)

You'll see this screen at the end of your sign up process:

If you click on 'Import your WordPress', you will be prompted for:
- Your WP username and password
- Your xml-rpc endpoint URL, which is where we'll be pulling all your content from.
For more information or if you're unsure how to get that endpoint URL, see here.

That being said, this endpoint URL you need will most likely be the root URL of your WordPress site + /xmlrpc.php.
Example: http://yourWPsite.com/xmlrpc.php

And if you click on the 'Advanced Options' link, you will have the possibility of installing a plugin and getting a couple more custom features for your import:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia.forumbee.com%2Fi%2F9def9a74-d476-4c05-bcb8-50c592d50a7b%2F547.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com&s=481&h=c33f2b2f3d88f0aee597c352911734475bb52dd1bd7701031a0b7634aa018dcb&size=980x&c=4253734830 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia.forumbee.com%252Fi%252F9def9a74-d476-4c05-bcb8-50c592d50a7b%252F547.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com%26s%3D481%26h%3Dc33f2b2f3d88f0aee597c352911734475bb52dd1bd7701031a0b7634aa018dcb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4253734830%22%7D" expand=1]

With the plugin, we'll be able to:

- Import your wordpress authors and create RebelMouse users with them.
- Give you detail on how's the import process status, like this:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia.forumbee.com%2Fi%2Fd45d01de-fd27-4720-8460-9bc9c3e90e3c%2F547.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com&s=687&h=c08ce0af9b29ffea147a6b96c93517d97c654c15aa4697582d7e24cdf47cb3e6&size=980x&c=908933810 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia.forumbee.com%252Fi%252Fd45d01de-fd27-4720-8460-9bc9c3e90e3c%252F547.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com%26s%3D687%26h%3Dc08ce0af9b29ffea147a6b96c93517d97c654c15aa4697582d7e24cdf47cb3e6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D908933810%22%7D" expand=1]

You don't have to wait for the import to be finished to go to your dashboard, you can just leave it running in the background.

 


 

2) When you already have a site, you can start your import by going to Content and Feeds.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia.forumbee.com%2Fi%2Ff42ca719-c3d7-4a60-84b6-45a3124b0548%2F547.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com&s=961&h=a5bb3869f22f23fb50733e6c38681a14c03b5764b7d1812330d4ea7b802d4ff1&size=980x&c=2624974840 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia.forumbee.com%252Fi%252Ff42ca719-c3d7-4a60-84b6-45a3124b0548%252F547.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com%26s%3D961%26h%3Da5bb3869f22f23fb50733e6c38681a14c03b5764b7d1812330d4ea7b802d4ff1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2624974840%22%7D" expand=1]

There you will find all your Feed information and Content for review. Scroll down until you find the WordPress importer:

You will be prompted for:
- Your WP username and password
- Your xml-rpc endpoint URL, which is where we'll be pulling all your content from.
For more information or if you're unsure how to get that endpoint URL, see here.

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.
