The software can search the database for relevant words, phrases, and even within defined time frames to gauge how often bloggers referred to a product by hour, day, week and more. It also can search for the same idea as expressed by phrases composed of different language. It encompasses a “tone engine” that, for example, ranks adjectives and descriptions on a scale to determine the degree of a blogger’s negative or positive feeling about the product or service being discussed.
