History books tell us that St. Augustine played an instrumental role in America’s early story. You’ve probably heard of Juan Ponce de León, Sir Francis Drake, Henry Flagler and the Timucua Indians. St. Augustine, which plops itself right between Jacksonville and Daytona Beach, is proud of those important names. Museums and plaques throughout town tell us that much. But the proud little city founded in 1565 wants you to know something else — the past is only powering its future.
Not even a decade old, Swire Hotels has already created quite the buzz across Asia’s high-end hospitality landscape. With 2008’s opening of Beijing’s Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Opposite House, not to mention subsequent debuts in Hong Kong (2009’s Four-Star The Upper House), Chengdu (The Temple House in 2015) and Shanghai (soon-to-open The Middle House), Swire has shown a level of consistency and commitment to rival brands much older.
Maybe you’ve heard that Amazon was looking for a location to build a second headquarters. Cities from all across the United States made pitches to woo the online retail giant. Boston was right in the mix, trumpeting its higher education, mass transit system and airport as major selling points.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
