New Feature Alert: Word + Hashtag Search Filter

Since the new year, we’ve released a bunch of new features at SocialRank with great success. New sorting options, building lists and revamps of the design of SocialRank. While it has been available for a few weeks in the product, we wanted to write up a little bit about a new filter – the Word (and Hashtag) Search filter.

The Word + Hashtag filter lets you find followers who have included a certain words or hashtags in any of their tweets or posts. This gives you some important context that is missing when using only the bio keyword search.

For example – I’m a huge New York Knicks fan. I don’t have the word “Knicks” in my bio but I tweet about the Knicks all the time. So if you are looking for followers that talk about a certain topic – using the Word Search filter is the best way to find them.

Like the Bio Keyword search, you can enter multiple words and either look for them as “Search for any words” (the equivalent of looking for X OR Y OR Z) or “Search for all words” (the equivalent of looking for X AND Y AND Z).

We also have added something called “Most Used Words and Hashtags” to each profile under the bio information and action items. Here you can see the most common words and hashtags used by that individual follower, along with the frequency that they’ve used it. If you search for a specific word it will show that first in the most used words and hashtags. This can be useful to help understand what a follower is talking about the most.

There are a lot of amazing things you can do with your audience once you find the right people. The Word Filter helps you better segment and find them.
