Overview

The data that is being built up can be viewed via the app, reports, dashboards and the RAS Match API. This support page is exclusively about the APP.

With the Reverse Article Search APP you have at any time an up-to-date overview of all urls on the web on which your articles have been (partially) copied.

There are two types of users. The administrator has access to all information and can have settings adjusted. The user only has access to the information determined by the administrator.

If you want to contact the administrator, go to the profile tab. His or her name is there under the Account column. Are you an administrator yourself and do you want to know how everything works? Click here for more info.

Search filters

With the filters you can decide for yourself what you want to see. There are seven filters, which we explain here:

  1. Search. A free search field for entering an article or website;
  2. Newswire. Select all or a specific newswire or publication;
  3. Publication dates. Select the lowest and highest publication date. To quickly select a period, you can also use the ‘fast’ filter at the top right;
  4. IPTC. Select the first IPTC category listed. The app itself determines what the IPTC could be if it is not included in the article;
  5. Match%. Select the minimum match percentage;
  6. Countries and regions. Select a country, continent, or region. If you have specified preferred countries, use the ‘my countries’ option to select them.
  7. Categories. Select a category. Your choices are: clients, non clients, prospects, pending and infringers.
