It's a way to deliver ads and content straight to China's living rooms. It's a way to deliver ads and content straight to China's living rooms. Baidu Inc. just bet 1 billion yuan ($158 million) that smart TVs, and their operating systems, have a bright future. Skyworth Digital Holdings Ltd. announced on Friday that a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chinese search engine will take an 11 percent stake in its Coocaa business.
That's where Baidu comes in. Ads remain the search engine's bread and butter, and TVs are still ubiquitous enough to offer an entry into Chinese households. Coocaa has an installed base of only 27 million units, yet 49 percent of those are switched on at least once a week. Skyworth expects Coocaa's revenue to almost double this fiscal year to HK$300 million ($38 million), driven by ads and content.
Compared to other big U.S. listings over the past few years however, Qu Toutiao could be relatively tame. At a valuation of $179,000 per user at the end of its first day of trading, Snap Inc. was the most aggressively priced. Yet it's well above Line Corp. and Weibo Corp.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
