"While we continuously expand the scope and type of social media covered, we're also aware of the critical need to provide filtering and focus so that our clients don't drown in a sea of uncategorized results," notes Moreover Technologies CEO Paul Farrell.

Moreover Technologies provides unparalleled article categorization using industry-leading Metabase XML, which incorporates semantic metadata in partnership with OpenCalais, and geodata in partnership with MetaCarta.

Aggregating and indexing of social media additions follows the same process as the established blog content protocols. Metadata categorization tags include feed rank, feed order, outbound links, feed categories, feed language, categories, stocktickers, generator and publishing platform.
