How It Works
The Seekr Score
Seekr is a news site and search engine that uses proprietary Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to index thousands of websites and top news sources using natural language processing.
A numerical scale from 0 to 10, where ten indicates the highest quality and zero is the lowest one.
Seekr evaluation algorithms offer a consistent and programmatic assessment of results in just seconds. For each result, Seekr AI analyzes the quality of information, adherence to journalistic principles, and general reliability of the author and domain source.
The Seekr Score Factors are shown with a Low-Medium-High sliding bar chart, shaded from teal to red. In each article, if there is a high detection of a particular factor, the bar moves to the red side. A higher presence of a particular factor may negatively impact the overall Seekr Score.
News sites are transparent when they disclose accurate information about themselves such as their mission, ethics, ownership, and policies. Transparency is key in building trust, and fully transparent sources are likely to be more reliable.
Seekr strives to be as accurate as possible. We are always working hard to improve our algorithms.

It is easy to state a particular website always leans left or right, however, at Seekr we believe the right approach to reduce bias and overgeneralization is to analyze the exact content of an article.
Seekr will analyze every news article, those where political content is detected will be scored through the Political Lean Indicator.
