Pick a country, any country

Since we rolled out country targeting for Trackur’s social media monitoring, we’ve had numerous requests to expand beyond the original 16 countries. As of today, I am pleased to announce that we have indeed expanded our country targeting support. How many new countries? As many as you want. We’ve added a new field for those that wish to target beyond the original 16 countries we offered. Simply click on the “Custom” option, under country targeting, and then enter the 2-letter country code of your choice. You can separate multiple country codes by a comma–practically giving you endless country targeting options.

Trackur adds foreign language sentiment analysis; now with more Afrikaans (and other languages)

Afri-what-now? Yeah, I asked the same thing when discussing the new languages, added to our automated sentiment analysis, with our team. As of today, I’m only teasing about adding Afrikaans and mean no disrespect–after all, there are 7 million native speakers in South Africa, and many use Trackur. Oh, and we didn’t forget about English either. We’ve beefed up our English language sentiment scoring as well. I’d give you an idea about our accuracy percentage now, but as we all know, software companies tend to exaggerate those numbers…and only you can decide how accurate we are for YOUR search results. We’ve

What will you build with the Trackur API?

In case you didn’t already know, Trackur offers two flavors of social media monitoring API. Our full Monitoring API allows you to send us a keyword and then receive all media mentions for that keyword, including title, snippet, URL, sentiment and influence. With our Sentiment/Influence API, you can send us a keyword and a URL and we will analyze it and tell you how influential the source is and the sentiment score towards your keyword. With both APIs starting at less than $500 a month, they’re a great add-on for those offering news monitoring, SEO, link-building, and social CRM tools.
