In the process of monitoring thousands of outlets, ingesting millions of articles, and identifying the bylines; Muck Rack automatically creates new journalist profiles every day. These profiles are searchable in Google for the benefit of journalists to find and claim as their own online portfolios/profiles.

Muck Rack’s editorial team is responsible for filling in a selection of these profiles that meet our criteria so they appear on Muck Rack’s curated platform. A smaller subset of these searchable profiles are set as verified.

This is why they may appear in one place and not the other. The quickest way to flag these profiles for review is by using the Request update button. Alternatively, you may start a new chat anywhere in Muck Rack or email us at
