Extract every Post, People, Publications and Tags out of a Medium Search.

Medium is an underestimated source of traffic. Readers are avid of new quality content and writers are experts at very niche topics. It's often a place where ideas get tested before being formalized in a book.

This Medium automation can extract all the results of any Medium search: Post, People, Publications or tags.

Combine it with another automation and start building advanced workflows to grow your Medium traffic. For example, extract everyday the latest articles about #marketing. Use this data as an input to Medium Auto Clapper. Everyone writing an article about that topic will see your claps just after they published it and are super likely to read in turn your articles.

Paste the spreadsheet's URL to Phantombuster.
