Google’s job search initiative is now live in US search results. Initially debuted at the company’s I/O conference, Google For Jobs sees the search giant collaborating with other companies in the job matching industry to connect employers with the right candidates. While harnessing the power of Google’s machine learning capabilities, combined with the services provided by other job matching sites, Google aims to help users find the right job for them.
Google is getting in on the fidget spinner craze with its very own virtual device embedded into search results. Just search for “spinner” on mobile or desktop and swipe to spin. There are two types of spinners, in fact. One is the ubiquitous fidget spinner we all know, and either love or loathe at this point. The other is a spinning wheel with numbers. I’m not quite sure what you’d use that for, but hey, it’s there. Google’s fidget spinner works very simply by swiping the screen.
Google is expected to be hit with a fine of over 1 billion euros by antitrust officials in Europe, according to the New York Times. In addition to the record fine, Google may be forced to change how it operates in Europe. All of this stems from the fact that European officials take issue with how Google surfaces its search results. The European Union alleges Google intentionally favors its own shopping services over competitors when ranking search listings.
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".
