Introducing Quick Search - The Search Engine for Trends
Making content relevant and timely is essential. Nobody wants to read the 100th article about social media marketing when the discussion has moved elsewhere already.
But that's easier said than done. Every day, stories are developing, topics are moving and the discussion is changing. Trying to keep up is hard work, and Twitter and Facebook trends only show you a fraction of what is really happening.
We think you need the full picture.
Quick Search is designed to show you the top trending topics for any given category, country or language, right as they happen. Powered by AI technology, it's the ultimate search engine for trends.
Why editors and publishers are using Quick Search:
- Next level content creation: how Marie Claire is finding tomorrow's hottest topics
- Newsjacking made easy: ride the Gilmore Girls wave
- Be a content detective: see the trending stories your competitors don't want you to know about
From key stories and influencers to top categories and hashtags - Quick Search is your window into the internet’s latest - across social networks, online news, blogs, forums and many more. The cherry on top: with unlimited searches, you can be sure never to miss out.

Newsjacking made easy: Ride the Gilmore Girls wave
Newsjacking is an amazing way for brands to capitalize on the day's news. Here's a hilarious example from Norwegian Airlines that sums up the concept in a nutshell:
Every so often you come across a can't-miss story like #Brangelina, but you can actually create just as much impact with more niche, everyday stories.
When we looked at trends of the day for this article, Gilmore Girls popped up almost immediately. With the top trending articles at your fingertips, it's easy to make a topic yours.
