We reveal the most engaged sites on Facebook in June 2015, with data for the top 25 publishers. After a few months of absence, we’re back with the biggest Facebook publishers of the month. The picture is somewhat changed since we last looked at these rankings at the end of 2014. These were the top ten for the month, based on total shares of their stories in June:Amongst the most shared publishers of the month were some familiar names: The Huffington Post in the lead, followed by BuzzFeed.
So you want to spread content analytics to more people in your organisation. How do you make sure you go about it the right way? In many organisations, it’s still the case that metrics are owned by a data or analytics team, with knowledge staggered at various levels throughout the organisation. It’s not to say that other teams aren’t interested in the data. By now there’s a general acceptance that audience data is the critical strand in audience development.
We’re always curious to know what makes viral publishers so successful — especially those creating original content. We talked to Diply, which has cracked the code on going big on social. Diply is one of those sites that pops up in the newsfeed again and again. The site drove more than 4.9 million Facebook engagements in July, up from 2.4 million engagements in January. So how is the publisher sustaining that growth? We asked Dan Lagani, Diply’s President and Chief Revenue Officer.
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".
