LONDON—Khuram Butt, one of the knife-wielding terrorists who killed eight in a rampage last weekend, wasn’t a silent plotter blending unseen into immigrant neighborhoods. He was out and about, openly trying to draw others to his radical view. Near a carpet shop on a side street in east London, the Ummah Fitness Centre bills itself as a spot for devout Muslims to box and lift weights. Men and women exercise separately, there are prayer...
CARDIFF, Wales—No club in world soccer obsesses over history books like Real Madrid. Everything must be ranked and counted and Los Blancos must always be first—especially when it comes to European titles. And on that front, Real is untouchable. With a 4-1 victory over Juventus here on Saturday, the club won its third Champions League trophy in four years and a record 12th overall. Real also became the first side in nearly 30 years to...
PARIS—The monologue inside Andy Murray’s head has always had a tendency to escape. Even when he is winning, he can’t help but berate himself on court, obscenely criticize his own game, and hold entire one-sided conversations about what a terrible tennis player he is. All of which is easy enough to write off as quirky when he’s racking up titles. But these days, the self-flagellation rings a little too true. The dour Scotsman, ranked No.
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".
