Muck Rack Alerts help you monitor for new articles from media outlets, content shared by journalists on social media, and new television and radio coverage. They differ from Google Alerts in a few ways:


Muck Rack Alerts often arrive faster than Google Alerts. Muck Rack taps in directly to outlet feeds, which means we don’t have to wait for new articles to be indexed by Google.

Filters and hyper-specific search queries

When setting up Muck Rack Alerts, you'll have a variety of features and options to consider. For example, your Alerts can be set to only deliver content with a specific word capitalized or excluding content from an outlet. 

Social media 

Muck Rack Alerts track mentions in journalists’ and influencers’ Twitter feeds, so you don’t miss out on the conversation taking place amongst newsmakers in your industry. 

Shared articles

Muck Rack Alerts also track the content journalists and influencers are sharing on Twitter. If a journalist's tweet contains a link to a story or webpage, Muck Rack scans the text of the shared link.

Broadcast coverage

Muck Rack Alerts can help you monitor TV and radio coverage through our third-party partnership with TVEyes. You and your teammates can receive broadcast clips that match any search terms right to your email inbox if you have the broadcast add-on included in your Muck Rack subscription.
