Monitor Your Business Alerts With Mention
When Google phased out its Reader the RSS feeds had disappeared until recently with the release of Hummingbird. Google Alerts have stayed on the radar so far, but you might be missing some news you had received before. That is where Mention.net helps to fill in the gaps and makes it easier to get the information you need.
Mention.net is a fairly new service which began in March 2013 as a way to provide ‘real-time’ results with the additional benefit of monitoring mentions of your brand or business’s name. Not only can you create alerts, but also import Google Alerts.
Currently the service is available on all mobile devices that use iOS, Android, Windows, and Chrome. Information is pulled from “social networks, news sites, forums, blogs or any web page.” You can share alerts with your team, and find important mentions without spam with their precise “artificial intelligence,” search technology.
Multiple languages are available with the ability to export alerts and mentions into a .pdf report or CSV file.
