Introduction to search and tags


Lurkit offers an in depth search functions that references a database filled with thousands of creators. This database provides information on views, titles played, and hours streaming making it easy to find exactly which influencers fits each campaign. To aid in finding the perfect streamer, users can use search and tags to gain more control over which creators and games they want to find.

For more control Lurkit offers additional search queries that can help companies target specific users. By using AND, OR, and NOT search tags the system will filter out results based on the user’s input. To use these tags, users should type the tag into the search bar and receive one of the following outcomes: 

  • AND: Finds results that contain both tag types.
  • OR: Finds results that contain either tag types.
  • NOT: Find results that do not contain this tag. 

By using these additional search options, users can focus on particular titles and genres of games when searching through the streamer database. This helps find streamers who enjoy similar work, excludes any outlying games, and can widen the search by including additional genre options.


There are millions of creators and thousands of games that can be searched through the Lurkit database. To find the right target, a user must ask the right questions within the search parameters. Originally, Lurkit only offered a limited search function allowing users to search via tags and find appropriate users. However, to mitigate this problem a recent update implements additional tag options to help focus in on more specific search parameters. 

This can be used to find creators that have played World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy, or could be used to filter out Call of Duty creators from Battlefield focused streams. Further, languages and genres can be added into the query making searching for the perfect streamer easier than ever.

Each tag has specific results tied to it, and depending on the tag users can find exactly what they are looking for.

  • AND: Finds results that contain both tag types.
  • OR: Finds results that contain either tag types.
  • NOT: Find results that do not contain this tag. 


When trying to combine search parameters, users should use AND-tags within the search function. However, it is not required to type AND into the search bar, as simply adding additional tags will execute this function within the platform. The main purpose of AND-tags is to narrow in for specific results by selecting only relevant tags within the search query. 

For example, if a user was searching for action and shooter games they would first type in “Action” and add that tag. One the tag has been added, they would then type in Shooter and add it as an additional tag within the search query. With both tags added, the user would then be presented with all data pertaining to action and shooter games.


When searching for content creators under Insight, the system will default to an OR-behavior. Users who add a tag for content creators or games will automatically search through the OR-function rather than AND. This means that users can not apply AND-tags to  Creators or Games within the platform’s insights tool. This change was made for new users accessing the platform, but could interfere with advanced functionality if advanced users are unaware of its default existence.


When a user wants to expand a search or link together multiple tag results, they should implement the OR-tags function. This allows the user to link multiple tags into a single search query. This is useful when trying to search for streamers who have played multiple titles, or linking together specific languages and genres of games into a single search. 

To use this function, a user must type “OR” followed by a space before typing in a tag. Multiple OR tags can be used in a single search, and any tag registered on Lurkit’s platform will appear in the drop down menu for selection. Select the relevant tags, then search and the platform will filter out all the users who fit those parameters. 

For example if a user wanted to find all the streamers who have played Valorant or Counter-Strike: Global offensive they would use OR-tags. First, they would need to input “OR Counter-Strike: Global offensive” and “OR Valorant” to set the appropriate tags. Once placed, users click search and the platform will filter out results that contain either Valorant or Counter-Strike: Global offensive. 

For example if a user wanted to find all the Fortnite streamers who speak Portuguese or Spanish, they could use this function. Input the Fortnite tag first, then create OR-tas for Portuguese and Spanish as seen below. This will filter through the system for all the streamers who play Fortnite and speak Portuguese or Spanish.


NOT-tags are exclusionary tags which are used to leave out certain results that the user does not want to find. By filtering out certain titles, the user can get a more focused result and find specialist style streamers who would be more likely to play their game. NOT-tags are used by typing “NOT” into the search bar followed by a space then type in a tag to exclude. This creates a NOT-tag instantly in the search filters and can be saved for future searches.

For example, if a user was to put in a NOT-tag for Counter-Strike: Global offensive, they would be able to find every creator who has not played that game. The NOT-tag can be combined with OR-tags within the search query allowing users to find exactly what they are looking for inside Lurkit’s database.
