I think it's a great way for communications professionals in particular to keep track of what's being said about their brand online. It also gives you a great indication of just how successful a campaign has been!

Pros:

great coverage of online news, blogs, forums and Twitter

Cons:

could add some more analytics

I've been using this specifically to surface Ai content and have been pleasantly surprised by many stories I'd missed. I'll continue to explore and report back...

Pros:

Surfacing content I wouldn't otherwise see.

Cons:

Some more stats in the email would be handy.

Been using these alerts for years, much better than Google alerts. The new Twitter added alerts are useful, I get a daily summary of my most important mentions which is nice. Talkwalker alerts is great for a free service, highly recommend you use it for your brand or business.

Pros:

Daily or instant notifications. Keep track of your brand reputation. Much more accurate than Google alerts.

Cons:

Limited and basic functionality no extra filters or alert notification settings for example alert by influence level or analytics etc.

I'd like to have a Results browsing and filtering experience. Happy to share my thinking here.

Pros:

Surprisingly good results. It is, in fact, better than Google Alerts! The main Alerts Dashboard is useful.

Cons:

Could benefit from a Result Viewing UX which was a bit more TweetDeck like.

I was excited to find Talkwater Alerts when Google Alerts stopped working and I couldn't find any help to fix it. However, I was very disappointed in Talkwater. It might be useful for some kinds of searches but for news alerts it is basically useless. It consistently misses news from big news sources. I have to run the searches manually to doublecheck which basically defeats the purpose of the service. Would love to hear recommendations for a news alerts alternative to Google that actually works!!

It is the best free tool to monitor brand mentions. Talkwalker Alerts allows users to create extremely specific search queries for their brand names, taglines, competitors, industry keywords. It sends the most important online conversations and tweets to the inbox.
