What is a NEV Score and How Does it Work?
Why a Score?
:: Two Reasons
We want to give our readers a quick and easy method for accessing the most popular and valued articles and secondly, we want to reward exciting and informative news releases with a rating system that signals their contribution out from the rest. We believe this method will encourage our contributors to provide more compelling and helpful news items. E.G. a solution oriented article that offers real value for our readers will score higher than a promotional item. The only time the latter may not be true is if the company submitting the promotional piece has built credibility with our readers by submitting informative and value rich articles prior to their promotional item.
How We Calculate Our Scores
The Nevscore is based on an algorithm that takes a variety of factors into account:
:: Interaction with the content.
As you browse and recommend, drop, comment or interact with an article, these actions are dynamically calculated by our scoring engine. Each action Nevscore uses in it’s calculation is weighted based on a predetermined importance level. E.G. ‘recommending’ an article carries with it more Nevscore credits than inserting a ‘comment’. User interaction is largely influenced by the overall quality of a given article. Well written and compelling article elements such as headline and summary description will play a role in the overall Nevscore.
Our network syndicates content to a worldwide audience of 750,000+ users. We target segments in all hospitality industries including chains, groups, individual owners and operators, industry associations, educational organizations, consumer & industry press, news aggregators, consultants and suppliers. Users are aggregated through industry portals, corporate intranets, association web sites, newsletters and both public and private content feeds. The depth of our network penetration in the hotel/hospitality market allows us to use ‘click through’ as a reliable and accurate source for assigning Nevscore credits. Note: We do not calculate Nevscores that do not have a minimum score as doing so would not provide fair and accurate results. These news items will be marked with “waiting”.
