Know, first off, that Muckety is not a universal search site like Google or Yahoo.
Our database focuses on national powerbrokers, mainly in the United States. We list top government and political figures, as well as board members of Fortune 1000 companies, major nonprofits and influential colleges.
So if your name doesn’t appear on Muckety, it’s probably because you’re not on one of these boards. If you think it should be, please let us know.
If you want to search for connections between several names, type each into the search box, connected by the word and. For example, the map below was produced by searching for:
Entourage and Ari Emanuel and Rahm Emanuel
We’ve filled it in for you, so click the search button to make the map.
Because these were exact matches on the names, the search engine went straight to the map.
Usually there is an intermediate page where you can select the items you want to map.
Let’s try searching on Entourage and Emanuel - Click on the search button to see what we get…
You should have gotten search results that looked a bit like the screen capture below:
In the list of search results, click each name you’d like to see - in our case click the boxes next to Entourage, Ari Emanuel and Rahm Emanuel and then click on one of the MucketyMap buttons.
Since they’re connected, all of the items will display. If they are not connected, the name with the most connections will be mapped.
Let’s give that one a try…
This time let’s search for Bill Clinton and Madonna. We’ve filled it in for you, so just click on the search button.
In the list we’ll check the box next to Madonna and the one next to William J. Clinton.
You should get a results page that looks like the screen capture below (notice that when you roll your mouse over a name that person’s relations appear in a box next to your mouse):
When you click the MucketyMap button you will get a map with only Bill Clinton’s relationships. Because Clinton has more relations in our database his relationship map was given priority over Madonna’s relationship map.
Here is the resulting map:
Restrict your search to only certain types by choosing from the list on the left side of the Advanced search page.
In the screen capture below we will only get results from the selected categories in Business & finance.
Also note that each item you search for must be at least 3 characters long.
