What You Will Need

Step 1 - Understand the use case

As you build and launch your Searchie Hub, one of the best ways to test that your Hub content visibility is correctly configured is to impersonate a member of your audience.

Each Audience Profile contains details about that person's access to your Hubs and any Audience Tags they may have. Impersonating them allows you to see the Hub through their eyes.

Step 2 - Access the Audience Profile you want to impersonate

From the Audience icon in your Searchie account, find or search for a specific Audience Profile you want to test.

Once you've found the profile you want to impersonate, click on the profile from the list to open their Profile Overview.

The Overview is the window that pops up on your screen and is highlighted below on the right side.

Next, click on personal details in the Profile Overview window.

Step 3 - Click on the Hub you want to view from the "Hub Access" list

From the Profile Overview, click on the Hub that you would like to impersonate.

Step 4 - View the Hub as that Audience

After selecting a Hub, your internet browser will automatically open a new tab. In this new tab, you will see the Hub as your selected Audience Profile. This is indicated in the blue bar across the top of the window.

NOTE: If you're using Safari

Because your audience impersonated Hub will appear as a pop-up window from Searchie, you want to make sure that Safari is set up to accept pop-ups from Searchie. Learn more about allowing pop-ups on Safari.
