Quick Post: Monitor What People Say

It’s a holiday here in the US and as such, it’ll be just a quick post today.

I found a cool post at Lifehacker the other day about monitoring what people say about you. This is something that is important for companies to do and the way they described provides a very complete way to see what is being said about your company, product, etc. around the Internet.

The link explains basically everything you need to do. You are essentially importing a series of subscriptions (20+) from various search and other sources to your RSS reader. In my test, some of them weren’t really needed, but you can always add/remove searches as you want.

If you are concerned what people are saying about your company and regular Google Alerts isn’t good enough, this method is as good as any that I am aware of.

How do you monitor the Internet for mentions of your company, products, or services?
