Media Monitoring


New Member
Hi all,

My company are looking for some ideas on online media monitoring – a type of product specific, EU-wide, Google that saves all pertinent stories for later perusal.

Is this something we could have built for us or do you reckon we'd need to retain another company?

It could be done. What type of media are you talking about? Video, audio, text?

You'd basically need to create a program that sent "spiders" across the different news outlets you wanted to monitor/record. This spider would search for preselected terms, keywords, categories, etc and then archive the data it found.

It's a very broad question though, and would no doubt require a project planning team with experience in developing such technology.
