For months now, Google Alerts have been missing many of the crucial mentions of your search terms and are now useless. After all, if you miss a blog writing about you, it makes these alerts useless since you miss the chance to make the most of this opportunity. Why rely on a service that misses vital information, when something better exists? Thankfully, the service Mention has swooped in to save the day and provide an even better interface for monitoring your web presence. Their amazing interface allows you to customize the mentions you see from your name as it will get to know your preferences over time. If that weren’t enough, it can even track your mentions on social media like Twitter and Facebook. The service is free as long as you track under 50,000 mentions a month (which will apply to most users). Run, don’t walk!
