Unfortunately, Stephen Colbert and Liza Koshy aren’t here to rewind the past week. However, you do get us and we would like to think that’s better! *wink wink*Alright, we can’t compete with their personable charm or stunning wit – but we can give serve up a whole load of YouTube viewing good stuff from the last week. Don’t believe us? Well you just read on, reader! On 22 March 2017, Carrie Hope Fletcher uploaded her first Watch Me, Wednesday video.
Good videos we bring, to you and your kin. Good videos for watching to start off your week. Okay… While none of this week’s videos are necessarily Vlogmas-related, it’s December! (AKA, our most favourite time of the year.) We hope this week’s Round-Up brings you as much joy as any Vlogmas video ever would. Kicking off the Round-Up is a dreamy apartment tour! Robin James recently moved house, which caused him to be pretty busy painting and redecorating.
Polina Bogusevich won this year’s Junior Eurovision contest, BBC Music announced the Long List for 2018, and Bake Off released the Great Festive Bake Off lineup and we couldn’t be more excited! Let’s keep this momentum going with yours and our favourite article of the week: the Weekly Round-Up. There has been so much discussion and controversy on and off YouTube about money, YouTube changing and YouTubers exploiting their audiences.
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".
