    Yup! monitoring your online reputation is a must thing now. And any business owner needs to check in that how his business is going and what the customers think about the services or products that this business is offering. So gaining some help from these free tools is really not a bad idea and it will improve the business too. Thank you for sharing it with us.

      We just need to become more proactive and realize that our online reputation is indeed very important and worth protecting. If first impressions count, then we are who Google ‘says’ we are. Enjoy browsing the site!

    Cool list. Let’s hope businesses will use them wisely though! Measuring social media presence shows how much the brand is likely to be discussed.

    Thought I would add a useful tool if your site uses Google Analytics. It is called InboundLinkAlerts from http://www.embeddedanalytics.com (disclosure: I work with them). This service is similar to Google Alerts, sending you an email when a new link on the web is made to your website. Based on past results, links are detected and sent within hours. Many of our users have built the service into their overall ORM strategy.

      Why would a site use this when Google Alerts already provides this for free? Seems like the next question.

        Length of time for alert to be delivered!

        It takes time before Google crawls a site and sends out the alert. With this methodology links can be detected and alerts sent within an hour (assuming someone has clicked on the link going to your site).

        Say someone writes a very nasty review of your company. Obviously it is good to know about this asap so that you can respond/react.

        The service also has some other nice feature such as KPI of recently discovered links.

    Most of the above tools only monitor social media comments and links and don’t tell you where your site is being actively rated by users which matters because this will actually showing up directly in google search results when users do a search of your website/business – so as far as checking website reputations the above only have limited value. This one http://www.bigthis.com does an full search which displays an overall site reputation by collecting ratings from the major review sites (eg. like wot, trustpilot or webutation) and displaying an a link to each review page for easy access. There’s also another one or two which does a similar survey of all existing reviews however, I don’t remember the link to them.
