If you feel a certain mention isn’t relevant, you can easily remove it from the feed. Not only that, but you can also stop receiving mentions from a particular source by blocking it. Let’s get into this in more detail.

Removing mentions

To remove a mention from the list, hover the cursor over the mention you want to be removed, and click on the X that appears. This will open a drop-down menu:

In the drop-down menu, click on Remove this mention from the list (as shown above).

This action will only remove that one mention from the feed (and will do so immediately, it won’t ask you if you’re sure), and the mention will be marked as irrelevant.

Blocking mentions

To access the blocking option, click on the X on the right of a specific mention to open a drop-down menu (as was the process for removing mentions).

In the drop-down menu, you’ll notice that you can block a mention from a specific source, a specific language, or block a specific source:

Blocking mentions from a specific source

If you want to stop receiving mentions from a particular source, click on ‘Block mentions’ from a specific source (this action can be applied to any website or social media profile).

You will no longer receive mentions from the blocked source. If you decide at any time that you would like to start receiving mentions from blocked sources, go to Edit filters and remove the source from blocked sources.

For instance:

Keep in mind that you need to omit the http and www when typing in the desired website. For example, type in only mediatoolkit.com/blog or bbc.com. That way the tool will be able to track the entire page, not only the front page.

Blocking a source

If you want to stop receiving mentions from Websites in general or a social media site, click on ‘Block mentions’ from type (e.g. Web, Twitter, Youtube, Disqus).

You will no longer receive mentions from the blocked source. If you decide at any time that you would like to start receiving mentions from blocked sources, go to Edit filters and remove the source from blocked sources.

Blocking mentions from a specific language
