Welcome to our guide to removing content from your results. From time to time you may want to remove content pulling into your searches because it is irrelevant and/or skewing reporting.

Content filters into your search folder when it matches the criteria below:

  1. Monitoring keywords

  2. Selected date range

  3. Filter options

If you would like to change one of these settings to remove an article, you can update the search folder the article has pulled into.

To remove articles, social posts or clips from your search results you also have the options below:

Using the 'Hide' function


Within Explore or Monitor, the Hide icon removes the article selected from your results across the whole platform. Note that this will exclude the content from all other search folders, exported spreadsheets, dashboards and reports.

  1. Load the content you'd like to tag in a content stream such as Search, Explore or Inbox.

  2. Via the tick box, select the articles. A select all tick box is available next to the number of results

  3. Select the Hide icon

This can also be reversed to 'unhide' if you'd like to include the article again later.

  1. Click into 'Open Menu'

  2. Select 'Hidden Articles'

  3. Check the article you would like to unhide

  4. Select 'Show Selected Items'

  5. Go back into 'Open Menu', Visible Articles

Updating Keywords/Content

If you would like to remove or make sure you do not see specific content, you can adjust your search query to make sure certain keywords are not included in your results by adding to the not clause.

When we convert the above search to Boolean, it looks like this:
