Catch Trend Words (CTW) is optimized for English language. For other languages, RSS feed can produce results for high number of words and for common words of that language. Please check Eliminating Words section for more detail.

CTW tasks are time-based processes that run on the background. Task related lists and analysis results will be listed after certain period.

Trend Words

1. Working with tasks

AnnDN analysis words based on defined tasks. For a task definition, you need to add RSS link (URL) and relate the task with pre-defined pattern.


Define a Task

You can open definition screen with Add a Trend Task button on the top menu.


You can add RSS link or select RSS from pre-defined templates on this window.

After adding URL, you need to test RSS and readability of related website by clicking on Verify URL button. Only readable and error-free RSS URLs will be added to your tasks.

If your URL is verified, you will see other areas to select:

  • Task Name automatically comes from RSS but you can change this name as you like it.
  • Pattern can be selected from pre-defined pattern lists.
  • Consecutive Words selection enables RSS word analysis for connection of consecutive words. This selection might make management of word lists harder for tasks without suitable patterns. Therefore, this property must be used carefully.
  • Task TLD selection is used for creating domain name for words captured by tasks. WhoIs queries are completed on the list and when you want to add the names to your domain list, TLD selections are meaningful.

Tasks are created after clicking Add Button and added to task list on the left-hand side. Now, RSS feed will automatically read by the system and analysed based on related pattern.

* Max 12 active CTW Tasks can be defined.

3. Usage within legal limitations

  • RSS structures are documents in XML format and designed for machine reading. There are thousands of RSS Readers for RSS structures. AnnDN software CTW module is a type of RSS reader. Words are separated and filtered from read documents and presented to users.
  • CTW module cannot read documents or web pages that are encrypted, that need authorisation or database access. Only public documents and web pages that are open for public access are read.
  • Read data are not used for any commercial purpose (data sales, gaining commercial advantages, market analysis etc.). Retrieved data is the information of “uniqueness of word” presented for individual use of users.
  • Obtained data cannot be published or distributed. According to copyright laws, documents cannot be distributed in another environment. However, words can be collected and obtaining statistical information from these words will not breach copyright rules.
  • CTW modules reads each web page with minimum 10 minute intervals. This process will not slow down the website. Since reading is completed on RSS feed, newly published documents on related category are read. This reading process uses same public protocols with page opening of a browser.
  • We recommend CTW users to analyse Terms of Services and Terms of Use sections of websites they want to add as RSS sources and add RSS link unless otherwise stated. For example, MIT Technology Review sites stated that they are not allowing data reading.
