What tools do you use to monitor your brand and links?


Other than google alerts...

I'd like to know anytime "StarStreet" "sports stock market" "starstreetsports.com" are mentioned. Anything out there I should be using in addition to google alerts?

  • + 1 Google Alerts (since you said 'other than' ;-). It's a very powerful tool. – Keith De Long 14 years ago

Everyone personal or business should be using search.twitter.com. Think about periphery keywords (curiosity keywords), locations, emotions, etc (see advanced options) that may not directly create "marks" for you to engage with but more pull you into conversations that build your knowledge of landscape and the people moving with in it.

Of course there are plenty more which I look forward to seeing on this page.

  • +1 for search.twitter.com - You can grab an RSS feed for the search results of different terms, so you don't have to actually perform the searches daily. If you find that in several searches, results are repeated (same tweets showing up), you can aggregate all the feeds into one using http://pipes.yahoo.com/ and filter for uniqueness. – Jay Neely 14 years ago


I use www.samepoint.com and like it.
