Quite some time back we had shown you, how you can get alerted when certain keywords appear in Google search results using Google Alerts. That was quite a long time ago, nowadays the conversation has shifted more towards social networking sites and information is exchanged at a pace that could be overwhelming.
Twitter is one such social network where you can get a wealth of information and opinions from different people. Many times people also share links and talk about new products with others using twitter. As a product owner or blog owner it could get quite hard to find out when a link from your blog or a product you make has been mentioned by someone on twitter.
Summize (now twitter search) does provide you with a way to find if anyone has been mentioning your blog or product in twitter, but that is more of a manual process. There is now a way, in which you can get real time alerts for any mention of your blog or product.
TweetBeep is for twitter, like Google Alerts is for search results. With TweetBeep you can setup a account to monitor any mention of your blog URL, product name or keywords in tweets. Once a match has been found, TweetBeep will alert you with a email about it. TweetBeep uses summize for getting results for you keywords, but in their case it is more real time for URLs.
The keywords alerts is not real time though, it can be setup to run every hour or once a day only.
TweetBeep allows you to set up multiple alerts using keywords and domains. There are also some advance options where you can filter out matches that use certain keywords or are being tweeted by a particular twitter user.
Be the first to know who’s twittering about you, your products, your company, or your website! TweetBeep.com gives you twitter alerts by email when a tweet matches your search! You can even check for mentions of your site, even if the link is shortened (like through TinyURL). And it’s free!
The best part about tweetbeep is that it will also search for URLs that are shortened using TinyURL or any other URL shortening services.
