Abstract: The Web assessment and media monitoring methodology presented in this chapter provides empirical Web data by automatically mirroring and processing large samples of Web information systems. For this research, 50 international media sites have been monitored in monthly intervals. The wealth of information contained in these sites was converted into aggregated representations through structural and textual analysis. This process yielded detailed profiles for each site and roughly one billion words of textual raw data. The resulting indicators and visualizations describe complex relationships and developments in the Web coverage of renewable energies that can hardly be captured and analyzed in traditional ways.
