Last year, the team formerly known as the St. Louis Rams moved to Los Angeles. This year, the team formerly known as the San Diego Chargers followed suit. In just two years, the City of Angels went from having zero NFL teams to having two. And, though it may take time for Los Angeles’ newest pro sports teams, the NFL’s Rams and Chargers, to build up their LA fan bases, there’s plenty of reason for optimism that they will.
This week and next, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York, will again host the US Open. With an annual attendance of 700,000, the championship continues to grow into not only one of the most exciting events on the American sports calendar, but also one of the most fan-friendly. Thanks to makeovers to the stadiums and grounds, a unique atmosphere, tennis’ global popularity and the allure of New York City, the US Open is a tournament unlike any other.
This week in a preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, the Atlanta Falcons will take the field for the first time in their new home: the $1.5 billion, 71,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Designed to create the ultimate live-game experience, the stadium will boast several unique architectural features and some of the most fan-friendly accommodations in American professional sports.
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".
