The Overview tab gives a general understanding of the search results using different widgets. Check out each widget explained below:


Mentions Trend + Spike Detection & Analysis

This widget provides an aggregate trend of activity across all sources for each day in your selected date range. If the date range is fewer than 7 days, Explore shows an hourly-breakdown in the widget.

Total Mentions - This provides a total volume of all mentions from all sources in your selected date range. It also includes the delta trend, which tells you the percentage change in volume over the previous time frame.

Daily Average - This provides an average of volume of all mentions from all sources in your selected date range, as shown below. Average volume per day is a useful benchmark and can help spot unusual spikes in volume. It also includes the delta trend, which tells you the percentage change in volume over the previous time frame.

To see the number of mentions on a specific date within your selected date range, hover your mouse cursor over that point in the widget. To drill-down to a specific date, simply click that point in the widget. Explore will update the query date range and the content stream and widgets will reflect these date range changes.

To perform spike detection and analysis, you will see a Lightbulb Icon indicating a spike within the Mentions Trend widget, click on the lightbulb to view insights.

AI-Powered Content Clusters

The bubble visualization for AI-Powered Content Clusters combines related search results based on topic similarity, organizing similar stories together, in an easily readable format.

Using a proprietary AI, Meltwater clusters related search results based on topic similarity and generates summaries for the cluster content. This helps by highlighting the most relevant content, quickly organizing similar stories, and summarizing the main points.

Each cluster can consist of any combination of News and Blogs content. If social content on Twitter or Reddit has shared a link to one of the docs contained within the cluster, then we retrieve them as additional context to the story.

Clusters are grouped together, color-coded, and scaled to size. Each cluster consists of an AI-generated summary of all articles in the cluster. This is displayed in the center of the cluster. Hover on the cluster to expand the summary.

Click the outermost circle (in this example, the light pink circle), to open the slide-out tray featuring all articles related to the cluster.

You can also narrow this down to top State/Province or City by selecting the dropdown beside 'Country' is the upper right hand corner of the widget.


Sentiment

This widget shows the overall tonality of mentions in your results. Sentiment is derived from our natural language processing algorithms. The sentiment of a mention will either be rated Positive, Neutral, Negative or Not Rated. A mention will be labeled as Not Rated if it does not have enough text to analyze sentiment.

To drill-down by sentiment, click on a sentiment-type and it will apply the sentiment filter to the query.
