Trackers now have smarter URL search!

without comments

Good news! Our TweetReach Pro Trackers now support smarter URL search with the url_contains: operator. You can add one or more URL queries to your tracked terms. A few examples:

  • url_contains:bit.ly/123abc
  • url_contains:blog.tweetreach.com/2012/08
  • url_contains:”http://tweetreach.com”
  • url_contains:tweetreach.com report

The Tracker will find any tweets that include the matched portion of the URL you include in your query. Like this:

The above url_contains:tweetreach.com query will find any mention of a tweetreach.com link, including subpages like http://tweetreach.com/plans.

A few notes on how to use this operator in your own Trackers… The url_contains: operator will find all public tweets where the URL you’re searching for has been actually pasted into the tweet, even if it’s been t.co shortened. But it will not find tweets where the URL was shortened before pasting into a tweet. Also, if you include a URL with http:// in your query, you’ll need to add quotation marks around the URL itself, like in the example above (no need to add quotes around other URL segments though; this only impacts those with the colon). You can also add other keywords to a query with a url_contains filter. Questions about any of this? Just ask!

Trackers, which monitor new and future tweets in real-time, are available in TweetReach Pro. Read more about what you can search for in a Tracker.
