Performing a simple search
Most pages of the Muckety Web site contain two areas where you can search the Muckety database and create Muckety maps – the top right corner of the page and the bottom right corner of the maps.

Search boxes
Search results page

In our first example we are going to make a relationship map for Google Inc. To do this type the word “Google” in one of the search boxes and press the Search or Go button to see a list of results.

On the search results page you’ll see a list of terms that contain the word Google, grouped by type of organization. Let’s say you’re interested in creating a map for Google Inc. Click the checkbox next to Google Inc. and then click on the MucketyMap button.

Muckety page

The resulting page contains a relationship map for Google Inc. with a list detailing the relationships in the map.

The list of relationships is broken into sections depending on the type of relationship.

In the Google Inc. map example there are people currently related to Google, other current Google relationships and Google past relationships.

Following each name is a description of the relationship.

For example, Robert Boorstin is currently communications director for Google Inc. and Sergey Brin is a co-founder and director for Google Inc. Each of the relations is also linked to that person’s Muckety map. Click on their name to see their map.

At the bottom of the list of relations is additional information such as Google’s location, business sector and links to financial information such Google’s filings with the Security and Exchange Commission and its current stock quote and chart.
