Let’s dive deeper into how to use the Marketplace filters.

Every Filter Explained
Check what every filter means.
The popular solutions filter is unique as it’s a set of predefined filters, which we think you can find helpful. It’s created for faster access to the most interesting media suitable for most of our users. Here you can find the following predefined sets:
To Attract Traffic
For Digital PR
For Brand Awareness
Check which of them are more suitable for your particular case based on their names. After you click on one of them, filters will be applied. Then, if you need more precision in results, you can tune filters further.
Regions, Countries and Cities
Geographical filters such as regions, countries and cities can help you to promote in media based on a particular country. However, note that these filters don’t reflect the actual audience of media. For more information on where people come from media, check the leading countries on the media page or use the sorting option Audience → Audience by Countries.
NB: you can filter by cities only after you have chosen at least one country.
Choose it to filter out media publishing in a specific language.
The category filter has two options that can’t be used simultaneously:
By default, it is set up to choose media under specific categories. It means that if you choose the Automotive category and leave it Specific, you’ll see all those media who write only about the automotive topic. Whereas if you choose General, you’ll see all media covering not only the automotive topic but also those who write about it occasionally or with something else.
The type filter lets you choose what media type you prefer:
Local news (regional media publishing for a specific city or a state)
News Media (media covering national or worldwide news)
News agency (an organization that gathers news and sells them to other media; here, you have a chance to appear in other media as well)
PR Distribution Service (your content will be distributed to different media of a PR distribution service choice)
PRNEWS.IO services (offers from PRNEWS.IO, e.g., TOP 5 Packages)
Portal (such type provides not only news but other services like email clients, weather and others).
If you wish to publish content in a specific format, use the format type filter.
Choose if you want your content broadcasted to news aggregators (e.g., Google News, Bing News).
Basically, extra features are desirable conditions under which you want to be published. Some of the options are available only for PRO accounts, including:
PRNEWS.IO provides a simple tool to choose the best media—the 5-star PRNEWS.IO rating. Publishing in 5-star media, you can be sure to get the best results.
The lead time is the timeframe within which content will be published in a chosen media. If you are short on time, choose Up to 24 hours.
Filters in the Advanced View
Switch to the advanced view to get more out of the Marketplace filters. When you do that, you’ll see that you can filter with specific ranges for visible columns. For example, if you choose Visits for one of the columns, you can set a range for this column (e.g., 100,000-1,000,000 visitors per month).
Let’s continue with learning what every filter means in the advanced view.
