More Elements Available for Lazy Load

Lazy loading has been an available option in our Layout & Design tool for quite some time. In the world of computer programming, lazy loading is a design pattern that allows specific parts of your site to load in a certain order based on what the user needs to see first. Its use is suggested for common page elements such as related post lists, sidebars, and any others features of an article.


Lazy loading has a dramatic impact on Google PageSpeed scores. However, the logic behind the form of lazy load previously available in our Layout & Design tool did not extend to a few important pieces of media that can make a difference in how fast a page loads.

With this in mind, we're pleased to announce a recent update to our lazy loading logic that now factors in lead media and images in body posts — elements that were previously unavailable for lazy load. We now have the ability to load these media assets only when they show up in your viewport.

What does all this mean for our clients? Dramatically higher PageSpeed scores.

Due to the immense benefits of lazy loading for lead media images and images in body posts, the feature is now enabled for all of our clients by default.

New! Update to 404 URL Tracking on RebelMouse

A 404 appears when your site isn't communicating properly with a server and an error page is delivered to your reader. Recently, RebelMouse deployed an update to better address how we track 404 pages on sites we power.

Previously, Google Analytics tracked 404 pages as if they were normal posts. This is because even if an article was deleted, the URL was still visible. For example, if your deleted post title was "Anne lives in Texas," Google would still crawl that headline.
