Whatdoestheinternetthink.net - What does the internet think?
Since launching in 2009, this has sparked some discussion as to how it all works. The analysis system is fairly basic: the searchterm is used in (English) sentences, which are arranged into three categories of connotation: negative, positive and indifferent. These sentences are then sent off to the search engine(s)*, counting the number of results returned for each category, which are subsequently converted into percentages. The sentences are double quoted, to make sure the search-engine searches for occurrences of the whole sentence. These results represent a very global impression of connotations (positive, negative or indefferent) for said search term, so they should not be taken too seriously. However, the more results (hits) are returned for a search, the more accurate the percentages can become.
