Blog credibility ranking by exploiting verified content

Andreas Juffinger, Michael Granitzer, Elisabeth Lex
2009 Proceedings of the 3rd workshop on Information credibility on the web - WICOW '09  
Therefore the credibility of a blog has to be validated before the available information is used for analysis.  ...  Besides, the content based ranking function sorts the blogs by credibility with high accuracy. Our blog analysis system is therefore capable of providing credibility levels per blog.  ...  The evaluation revealed that we cannot retrieve a credibility ranking from the similarity values between the news corpus and only the relevant blog entries (Scenario S1).  ...

Key blog distillation

Craig Macdonald, Iadh Ounis
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
However, a main difference of this blog distillation task from normal adhoc or Web document retrieval is that each blog can be seen as an aggregate of its constituent posts.  ...  In this paper, we investigate several aspects of blog retrieval: Firstly, we experiment whether a blog should be represented as a whole unit, or as by considering each of its posts as indicators of its  ...  For 8 queries, Elsas et al. manually assessed for relevance the blogs retrieved down to rank 50 by a baseline system [6] , and this is used as a training dataset.  ...

Overview of the TREC 2008 Blog Track

Iadh Ounis, Craig MacDonald, Ian Soboroff
2008 Text Retrieval Conference  
The TREC distributed opinion-finding medians for each topic are computed over all runs (baselines + opinion-finding runs, i.e. 191+41 = 232 runs).  ...  We consider that including the baseline runs in the computation of the medians would be inappropriate, as these baseline runs were not intended to retrieve opinionated documents.  ...  Finally, we are grateful to Rodrygo Santos for handling the blog distillation task relevance assessments system and for various editing help with the overview paper.  ...

Ipek Baris Schlicht and Angel Felipe Magnossão de Paula and Paolo Rosso
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We use a BM25 and a domain-specific semantic search engine for retrieving initial documents. Later, we examine a health news schema for quality assessment and apply it to re-rank documents.  ...  We merge the scores from the different components by using reciprocal rank fusion. Finally, we discuss the results and conclude with future works.  ...  Also, we would like to thank Ronak Pradeep for his help in providing the subset of the index corpus to us.  ...
