Mention also monitors social media in addition to the web (and unlike Google alerts these days, it actually works!)
I've been using Mention for the past month to vainly follow "Ryan Hoover" and "Product Hunt". I agree, it's far better and more comprehensive than Google Alerts. Newsle (http://newsle.com) is similar, shared by @mishachellam a while back here - http://www.producthunt.co/posts/211
@rrhoover wish they had better filtering systems for the alerts. sometimes I want to get more specific.
Hey @thejulielogan what kind of filters would you desire ?
@thejulielogan If you ever want more specific alerts for Twitter, check us out: http://pindrop.socialie.com
I've been happy with Mention and the alerts that come in on my name. But I like Newsle a lot too
It's really expensive! $99 for 5 alerts??
Mention is THE web monitoring platform for marketers. Highly recommend!
