The evaluation of node importance is the main research direction in public opinion field, which is much significant to accurately find out the influent nodes for the propagation and evolution of public opinion, furthermore to effective control and predict public opinion situation and in-time guide it. On the basis of the topology structure of network and the attributes of node itself, this paper introduces a method to evaluate node importance in public opinion based on topological potential. Through the theoretical and experimental analysis, it is proved that this method can evaluate the importance of nodes in a fast and accurate way in propagation network of public opinion, which is significant both to theory and practice.
