At the moment, there are more than 1.2 billion websites on the internet, according to Internet Live Stats. As anyone with a startup or long-standing business can tell you, websites require content, and often content management systems. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento and Blogger are the market leaders for CMSs, providing both website and blog resources for about 36 percent of all sites, according to W3Techs, which provides information about the usage of various types of technologies on the web.
The Internet of Things generates a lot of data. How much, you say? Cisco Systems projects that total data generated by all people, machines, and things will reach 600 zettabytes by 2020. Compared with the total traffic over the internet, which crossed the 1 zettabyte threshold at the end of 2016, IoT traffic is becoming a beast. How can a company wrangle value out of all the data traversing its IoT ecosystem?
The sky continues to be the limit for the cloud market, with IDC reporting earlier this month that the public cloud market will grow to $203.4 billion worldwide by 2020, up from a forecasted $122.5 billion in 2017. Cloud service providers are scrambling to corral as much of that market at possible.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
