Online review monitoring

Reviews Online

With over millions of local reviews on Facebook alone, it’s clear that customers are sharing their opinions online. Seventy-two percent of consumers say they trust online reviews as much as personal referrals,1 so whether it’s a testimonial, a detailed article on someone’s blog, or an offhand comment on Twitter, people are now chatting 24/7—and local business owners need to be paying attention.

Understanding reviews and mentions

Online comments can be broken down into two categories: structured and unstructured mentions. Our system hunts for both, making it simple to track what people are saying wherever they’re saying it.

Structured mentions are already classified or ranked in some way. These include reviews based on numerical or star ratings that come from sites like Google and Facebook.

Unstructured mentions come from anywhere on the web where someone has mentioned a business without an explicit rating. For example, tweets, blog posts and news articles.

Our system automatically determines the sentiment of unstructured mentions, making it easy to see if the writer was satisfied or not.
