What free tools do you recommend to monitor what the web says about your brand?

There seems to be a myriad of paid services, but hard to find any free tools to do this.

    I feel like free tools tend to lack in certain areas when compared to the paid ones. Even the paid ones are not perfect and will not guarantee a 100% coverage, let alone those that are free. People have already provided some quality recommendations, and I am sure at least a couple of them isn't free or offer limited free components of their services. I am being biased while recommending Brand24 but with a free trial you could see for yourself if paid solutions have enough advantages over the free ones.

    Monitor multiple timelines and alerts, add team members to help manage your accounts, and schedule updates.
  6. I've had trouble with google alerts for several years (they bypass my inbox and are automatically being deleted), so I use Talkwalker instead. It's a bit "old school" but does the job well.

    Does not track mentions yet .. but allows you to monitor 100's of places your business is listed online and helps you to manage your ratings, reviews and a lot more from one place and get notified when anything changes (eg you have a new review or a rating has changed somewhere )
