Social Proof Index (SP Index)


SparkAmplify’s SP Index is generated by our algorithm and is given to each brand as a measurement of its overall media presence quality. Social Proof Index is an industry-first index that takes into account a brand’s social proof based on social share, placement number, placement quality, impression and search ranking.

Social Proof Index is a score from 0 to 100. Every brand on SparkAmplify has its own Social Proof Index that is updated frequently to reflect the latest situation. Brands with Social Proof Index of 100 means it has better media exposure results than that with Social Proof Index of 50.


Social Proof Index (SP Index) quantitatively measures a brand’s press coverage in terms of social share, placement number, placements quality, impression and search ranking.
