Advanced semantic tagging helps find crucial intel faster, providing a competitive edge.
Companies are drowning in data. Yet, insightful information is key to smarter decision-making and competitive edge. Finding the “sweet spot” between information overload and relevant intel is one of the hottest topics in today’s data-driven decision-making realm.
Global media aggregation and monitoring company Moreover Technologies is moving aggressively to meet data-driven market needs—including use of advanced semantic tagging. Recently, Moreover inked a multi-year contract that extends use of Thomson Reuters’ OpenCalais semantic tagging processes to social media. ”Companies are demanding fast, reliable content results, especially elusive posts that are only five or six words long. They don’t have the time or patience to sift through tons of irrelevant content in hopes of finding something meaningful,” says Paul Farrell, Moreover Technologies President. ”OpenCalais links content with entities such as people, places, and organizations, facts such as people working for specified companies, and events like appointments to a new position.”

In the spirit of Spring and the Easter holiday this weekend…We held a competition today and the ingredients were Stuart’s Organic Free Range Eggs [Steggs] plus a sprinkling of love and a dollop of imagination [or imaginatively bought ready-made cakes in some cases!] Stuart is one of Moreover Technologies’ top Sales staff in the UK. While we are not Martha Stewart… our team had a lot of fun and we really had a GREAT time.. not to mention some GREAT EATS!!
- Divine homemade cookies from resident blogger Zak.
- Ginger Snap baskets with homemade custard and chocolate eggs from Michelle. (special award for the most work)

- Cakes that were on special offer at M&S from Si
- Spicy Egg Biriyani from Brian.
- Lovely moist Ginger cake from Lee (well his wife).
- Chocolate, walnut & sour cherry brownies from Fareita.

At the beginning there were a few dubious looks at the spread before us.
We then got in to the spirit of things tucking in and growing Ginger Snap tashes.
We tasted everything on offer and marked all dishes out of 10.
Tallying up the results there were a few cheeky comments!
Scotch eggs were very sausagey?!
The Winner Takes it All:
Mark and his Scotch Eggs!
With thanks to

Transparency and track record are extremely important criteria for selecting and staying with a social media monitoring and aggregation company. Anyone can make any claims about anything at any time, but how do they document them?
It’s a very slippery slope, as social media monitoring aggregator’s work 24/7 to find and promote their latest competitive edge. As everyone knows, the more you’re scrambling for the top spot, the greater the likelihood of exaggerated or downright false claims.
That said, there are three “Qs” that will help define the best social media monitoring solution partner for you. They are: Quantity, Quality, Questioning.
Quantity & Quality
This is much trickier than it seems at first glance. For example, Moreover Technologies, just achieved a milestone of actively monitoring 2.5 million-plus independent social media feeds. That’s more than triple the 750,000 active feeds just a year ago, and positions Moreover Technologies as a strong force in the social media monitoring space.
But quantity without quality means nothing. You can have the highest quantity in the world, but if a substantial portion of the feeds are spam, dead blogs and adult blogs, you’re working at cross-purposes. It makes it that much harder to find real-time relevant information.
So, while we are adding to the total feed base, we’re also deleting material that doesn’t meet our spam-free White List standards. In fact, we just eliminated 125,000 feeds that had not posted in the last six months or were not posting original content.
Don’t take our claims or anyone else’s at face value. This is where transparency and track record become very important. A legitimate claim should be factually provable via some type of transparent data. For example, we can document our total number of feeds, and show you the ones that we’ve taken off the White List.
Track record brings historical performance data into view. If a company has a long history of providing accurate and verifiable information, it enhances the likelihood of a continuing tradition. On the other hand, if a company hasn’t been around long enough to have amassed a substantial track record, or has been called out for providing inflated data, it’s more likely to continue this process. After all, habits—both good and bad—are hard to break.
By seeking to understand quantity and quality of the social media monitoring data provided, then asking lots of questions to verify legitimacy and long-term consistency, you will get a social media monitoring solution that will perform today, tomorrow, and long beyond.

One of the major Web success stories of the past 12 months has been the rise and rise (including a $6bn Google snub late last year) of Groupon, and other similar deal-of-the-day type sites. With the huge buzz and demand for these sites seemingly set to continue we are now seeing a flurry of publishers joining the phenomenon by partnering with the deal-of-the-day sites or creating their own in-house versions.
In the States both McClatchy and Media General have teamed up with Groupon to offer localised daily deals, the NYT have their own TimesLimited and now Hearst have a white label agreement with Analog Analytics to offer similar local deals.
European publishers aren’t too far behind as the Telegraph, DMGT, Archant, and Axel Springer are all moving into the group buying space, with rival publishers surely not too far behind.
Of course, as the home of content aggregation, the team here at Moreover are busy working away on a “one stop shop” for all the deals in your area, so if you’re interested in receiving one of our free daily alerts for all the deals where you live then get in touch below!

Periodically, it’s important for every company to grade itself and determine how it stacks up to the competition. A Media Monitoring company has released a video detailing the six criteria they view as critical to selecting an “online media intelligence partner.” We decided to address our performance using these six criteria. Rather than grade ourselves, however, we thought it would be more useful and meaningful if you grade us based on our responses below. So, here goes:
Coverage: 2.2 million+ sources returning 2.2 million news and social media results daily through a unified portal; ability to find non-feed-based content (e.g., academic and government sites, research group reports, company websites) by going out and collecting influential sources not on the RSS radar; delves into 800+ searchable industry categories spanning 100+ countries and 50+ languages.
Relevance: Sophisticated, cutting-edge filtering and refinement tools and an editorial review team weed out irrelevant information and spam quickly; intuitive, user-friendly search tools enable users to pinpoint their most relevant news and social media content rapidly; industry-leading “feed of feeds” using the Web’s original ping server ensures returning real-time relevant results.
Speed: Not only does the powerful weblogs.com ping server reliably gather results fast, easy-to-use tools are in place to share information rapidly via customized newsletter, email alerts, and feed sharing tools; Fortune 500 clients and the world’s leading media monitoring agencies depend on Moreover to be fast, fresh, and focused.
Analytics/Analysis: An easily learned and operated dashboard provides capability to access massive global content and filter it down to the “best of the best” results–making research and development efforts less laborious, and much more accurate and relevant; offers on-the-fly analysis (e.g., mentions of companies, people, products, events and stock tickers); enables creation and sharing of charts to simplify presentation of R&D information.
Account Service: Help is available via both phone and email; experienced professionals can help with everything from troubleshooting to training, adding new sources to assessing best ways to maximize client value; besides automated filtering and scrubbing, real people provide editorial review—enhancing both quality and quantity of content.
Adaptability: An entire suite of media monitoring and market & competitive intelligence solutions offers maximum choice and flexibility in how information is gathered, refined and shared; a comprehensive client service team stands ready to provide further customization; R&D to enhance and expand services based on client feedback is ongoing and omnipresent.

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Newsdesk update, we are pleased to announce the release of an updated search tab within the Metabase Portal:
Moreover developed the new Search functionality at the request of our clients, to expand on the search options we provide across our Source Lists. This option enables our clients to submit Source Lists to determine whether Moreover is already harvesting specific sites in the News Metabase and/or Social Media Metabase.
The tool provides either exact or partial matches. Where a link is not matched precisely, but the domain is part of our index, this will appear as a partial result.
All results returned provide the relevant source information and metadata as found in the other tabs within the Metabase Portal by clicking the grey button next to each result. The Feed Class column defines whether the matched entry is part of the News Metabase or Social Media Metabase.
We hope this additional functionality will really show off our sources lists and let us know should you have any questions or feedback!
