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.
