Creating a Basic DIY Keyword Search

Modified on: Thu, 26 Jan, 2023 at 4:10 AM

The following section will guide you through the process of creating an effective Keyword Search that can be used to bring coverage into your system.  We recommend viewing our Concepts for Creating Effective Basic Keyword Searches document prior to creating a search.

To create a basic keyword search using the form presented,

  1. Hover over the “i” icon to get more information about each field in the form.
  2. Enter your core search term(s) in the “Contains ALL the following keywords”. Core search terms are words or phrases that have to be present in every article to make them relevant.
  3. If you enter multiple words or phrases in the “Contains ALL the following keywords”, notice that the system will insert a Boolean “AND” which means that all entered words or phrases in this field must be present in the article for it to be brought in by the search. If you do not want this AND relationship inserted, you may want to consider revising your search or using the Advanced Search option.           Graphical user interface, text, application

  4. Enter qualifying terms in the “Contains ONE OR MORE of the following keywords field. Qualifiers are terms that “qualify” your search and provide more information about the context in which your key search terms are relevant. The presence of qualifier terms helps ensure that the mentions of your core search terms are relevant to your specific needs. One or more of your qualifier terms needs to be present in a clip for that clip to be retrieved.Graphical user interface, text, application, email

  5. Add exclusion words and phrases in the “Contains NONE of the following keywords” fields. When an exclusion term is present, that takes precedence over everything else. Even if all of your core search terms and qualifiers are found in a clip if it contains any one of your exclusion terms it will not be retrieved
  6. Select the languages of the coverage that the search should look for matches within.
  7. Select the sources that the search should look among.Graphical user interface, Word

In the optimiSation process, we translate your search terms so that they will be acceptable to the various social channels’ search term requirements.
