Despite the fact that Weber Shandwick takes a second position in the rating, they have a bigger amount of articles written about them and higher number of ideal articles. We can observe the same situation is with Burson-Marsteller.In simple terms, the Ideal article means that the story was published in the most popular media outlet, the brand was the main topic of the article and it had a positive sentiment.
