A 1925 Colonial-style home in Washington, D.C., that sold last year for $1.06 million had humble beginnings. It was a Sears, Roebuck and Co. kit home, the Martha Washington, advertised in the company’s ubiquitous catalog for $3,727 in the 1920s. “It was something that made it unique,” says Michael Spratt, an attorney who bought the house with his wife, Megan. “It was really solidly built.” From 1908 to the 1940s, Sears,...
“Tribal” is a word residents of Prouts Neck, Maine, use, half joking, when they describe their tranquil, old-moneyed community. Many of the families who summer in the 200 or so homes on this rocky peninsula have been going there for generations. Houses tend to get passed down. When they are sold, it’s often done off-market to friends or the...
When renovating a house, it helps to have a sister who is an award-winning architect. Rising country musician Rob Baird bought a three-bedroom, 1,000-square-foot bungalow in Austin’s tree-lined Bryker Woods neighborhood, near the University of Texas, for $292,000 in 2010. He then rented it out to a friend and moved to Nashville to make his name in the country-music scene, staying in the house’s 300-square-foot guesthouse when he was in town for shows.
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".
