Earlier this year I spoke at the HeavyBit DevGuild Content Strategy conference about how Algolia approaches content creation. You can find the full slides for that talk below. When I announced I was joining Algolia last year, I had two large initial goals that I wanted to accomplish. The first was to put words to the Algolia brand to create a consistent internal understanding of who â€œAlgoliaâ€? is.
C’était pendant que je montais ma propre société (qui a coulé en 2016 avec 14 employés et 250K€ levés auprès d’investisseurs dont Xavier Niel) que j’ai commencé à m’engager de plus en plus dans des discussions politiques en France. D’abord, le mouvement des Pigeons, ensuite sur la French Tech, et finalement sur la campagne présidentielle. J’ai parlé de mon soutien pour Emmanuel Macron l’été dernier.
At Algolia, we take search seriously. And we take security even more seriously. Search is the means by which users access personal & often private data, and one of the reasons customers trust that data on Algolia’s servers is because we have strong security for all of our customers – even our forever-free Community plan used by thousands of websites today. Some data is more sensitive than others.
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".
