When we first started planning our trip to Alaska, we knew we wanted to go to Fairbanks but didn’t really have a plan. World renowned as a place for intimate Northern Lights viewing experiences, one of the best things to do in Fairbanks, the timing of our visit would unfortunately fall when it literally never gets dark. Not one to hide my feelings, I was at first crushed about this. Seeing the Northern Lights in Alaska has always been on my list but it would have to wait for another time.
When people think of planning a Virginia vacation the first thing that comes to mind is miles of beaches, ocean life and historic battlefields. While these are awesome things to do in Virginia, I think a lot of people forget about the lush parks and natural wonders that Southwest Virginia holds. The last time I was in Virginia I was 18 and on a day trip from Washington D.C to visit George Washington’s house. It was all I saw of Virginia and I haven’t been back since.
The Roof of the World is often thought of as a mysterious and inaccessible destination but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to get to travel to Tibet if you do your research and plan far enough in advance. Housing the highest mountain on our planet at 8848 meters above sea level, Tibet is a wondrous adventure that requires a lot of planning. Most people choose to commence their journey from Chengdu, China making their first stop in Tibet the city of Lhasa.
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".
