The Houston Rockets were one of the best teams in the NBA last season. They hired Mike D’Antoni as their coach and unleashed James Harden as their point guard, and the result was one of the most explosive offenses the league has ever seen. Now the league will never see that exact offense again. Houston on Wednesday made the first huge move on an NBA free agent even before free agency begins this weekend by reportedly trading for...
The best NBA teams in the last three years have played a thrilling style of basketball embraced by sophisticated front offices and thriving star players who have become more powerful than ever. The New York Knicks were not one of those teams. For the last three years, the Knicks Knicksed, and much of the most recent Knicksing was a reflection of team president Phil Jackson. Jackson, the 71-year-old former coach with so many...
The entire point of the annual exercise in labor allocation otherwise known as the NBA draft is to give the worst teams the best players. Those teams are usually so bad, however, that one rookie player isn’t enough to make them good. Not even LeBron James could drag the Cleveland Cavaliers to the playoffs in his first two seasons. It’s almost impossible in the NBA for a team to suddenly transform itself. But that’s what...
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".
