The keywords you include here should be as general and broad as possible, because there will be a number of refinement tools moving forward to help you take your search to a more specific level. To enter a keyword, simply type it into the entry box and select the \"+\" button to add it: \n[block:image]\n{\n  \"images\": [\n    {\n      \"image\": [\n        \"https://files.readme.io/TfwIpBHSmew5zpbtvI4Q_Screen%20Shot%202015-04-02%20at%2012.15.17%20PM.png\",\n        \"Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 12.15.17 PM.png\",\n        \"2404\",\n        \"814\",\n        \"#1f5470\",\n        \"\"\n      ]\n    }\n  ]\n}\n[/block]\n\n**Step 2:** Once you have entered a handful of general keywords in the initial keyword entry box, you can click the terms and will have the option to see blog search results that \"may contain,\" \"must contain,\" or \"does not contain\" your keywords.

Searching for New Blogs


GroupHigh's discover feature allows you to search for new blogs using a variety of vertical or genre related keywords and qualifying filters to help you identify best-fit blogs for your outreach marketing initiatives. Once you have created a list in GroupHigh using the "Create New" dropdown in the top left corner of the screen, you will see that there are several ways to begin populating your new list. To search for new blogs, select the "Discover" option: [block:image] { "images": [ { "image": [ "https://files.readme.io/ccndvJnaSjW48URuB8pp_Screen%20Shot%202015-04-02%20at%2012.04.40%20PM.png", "Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 12.04.40 PM.png", "2400", "710", "#1672a0", "" ] } ] } [/block] **Step 1:** Use the initial keyword entry box to enter terms that are related to a popular vertical or genre of blog.
