What is sentiment analysis?

sentiment analysis

As the term "sentiment analysis" suggests, a basic goal in sentiment analysis is to classify the polarity of a given text. Sentiment analysis does this by looking at the document, sentence or entity feature / aspect and assigning it a polarity — positive, negative, or neutral. Beyond polarity sentiment classification, however, has even more advanced possibilities. For example, it can assign emotional states to texts such as "angry", "sad", and "happy".

Sentiment analysis provides insights into the opinions and emotions that people express about your brand, product, or service online. It uses natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to quickly identify the tone of text, video, or images, which can help brands to identify and react to negative reviews, articles, or other mentions.

How to improve your reputation online – key points for improvement

They really are watching you.

Whether you realize it or not, everything you do has an impact on your online reputation. Google is quietly working in the background to compile and rank what is said about you online. This includes reviews on websites like Yelp and TripAdvisor, blog posts, and social media mentions. You can control some of these things, like blog posts made on your own website. But, largely, Google’s judgment and your online reputation are out of your control.

How To Add Schema To A Web Page Footer

Schema markup can improve your search engine profile

Schema markup tells search engines a lot of important things. They are optional, but helpful in websites. For reputation management, we use schema to help Google and Bing know which sites are related. For example, we recommend schema be placed on the main website of a company and use "sameas" markup (more on this later) to show search engines the websites of sites related to the company, like it's Facebook page, Twitter, and more. By adding this type of schema to the HTML code, search engines know for certain which sites are related to the company. They don't have to guess. This often results in a better search engine profile for the company. It works for people too.

Finding online influencers in any industry

influencer-marketing

The best reputation management firms use some degree of influencer outreach to promote a positive online image for their clients. They're working to change the narrative about a person or brand, so third-party affirmation and brand amplification is important to reinforce brand messaging.

In its best form, influencer marketing is a mutually beneficial relationship: companies leverage influencers in order to get more people talking about specific aspects of a brand or person, and influencers get compensated for their efforts in the form of promotion and compensation from brands.

Before you rush out to find influencers, ask yourself this question. Who are the ideal, or right, influencers are for your company? If you’ve ever asked yourself this question (and if you haven’t, you should), you probably have an idea of why a particular influencer is a great fit. Perhaps they have a large following in an industry you’re trying to reach, they have expertise in a field that’s crucial to your business, or they have a personal story that will help attract your target market.

Remember that it's usually more productive to start with small- and medium-sized influencers, who may be more receptive than larger influencers because they are easier to reach. It's also easier to get something published or featured on their site, which can help your message get in front of a larger audience.

Once you've decided which type of influencers you'd like to work with, it's time to start the search. Here are a few methods to find influencers online.
