Snitch Subject: First rocky planet found outside solar system

This is an article on CNN, which talks about how scientists have discovered the first confirmed Earthlike planet outside our solar system. The article then goes on to talk about that "Earthlike" is a relative term and how the planet is nothing like Earth. It's more like Mercury because of it's distance from the Sun. It's molten hot on one side, ice cold on the other and has no atmosphere. I'm curious to understand how these scientists define Earthlike?
