Mention vs SERPWoo Monitoring
Are you looking to compare Mention to SERPWoo?
I'll be straight up and let you know it's not an apples to apples comparison.
Mention was one of the first brand monitoring tools I ever came across personally, besides Google Alerts. Simple, good at what it provides, and one of the first tools available to monitor your brand online.
But SERPWoo Monitoring set out to do something different
Lets look out how SERPWoo is different from Mention in this Mention vs SERPWoo Monitoring example..
- Mentions most comparable plan is $83 a month. SERPWoo's is $49 a month.
- Mention limits you to 5,000 results a month. SERPWoo Monitoring does not set any limits monthly on your results.
- Mention does not give you historical data or report exporting. SERPWoo gives you historcial data and a CSV export of your data for reporting.
- As a whole, Mention is an alerting system for social and brand listening. SERPWoo is a suite of SEO tools to help you research competitors, analyze SEO niches, find keywords and more.
Upfront, SERPWoo Monitoring is more cost-effictive for many people looking to dip their toes into brand monitoring. Why pay the equivalent of $83 a month when you can get almost the same feature set for $49 a month?
SERPWoo Monitoring also does not limit the amount of results you get monthly like Mention. Why stop getting alerts and notifications just because more news hit this month than last month and you crossed the 5,000 threshold that Mention sets on you?
And we don't treat historical data something you need to upgrade your plan for. It's included upfront in all of our plans. You are also able to export your report data with SERPWoo.. something not available on Mention's $83 monthly plan
On top of all of that, you get a full suite of SEO tools to help you research competitors, analyze niches and rankings, find keywords no other keyword tool can dig up, and get access to SEO training that no other software provides for just $49 a month.
So let me tell you why I built SERPWoo Monitoring
While several 3rd party tools exist to help you do a similar task, I couldn't find any that would help me track more than just social media channels ( Twitter ), or track specific social media channels I was interested in besides Twitter.
Many of these tools missed mentions of SERPWoo on the general web, or would find it a week later when the topic was now cold.
One even let me track 1 keyword for free, but then told me I could only get 250 results a month. And when I got to the 250 result limit, told me I wouldn't get any more alerts that month and just had to sit on the sidelines.
What a terrible idea. Limit your customers over something they have no control over?
Weak sauce if you ask me, especially if they thought that would make me want to upgrade to their paid service!
You can see how we measure up to some other brand monitoring tools below if you want to check it out...
So I did what any self-respecting entrepreneur that can code would do, I built my own little BETA service and added it to SERPWoo so you could enjoy it too.
Here's an example where I found someone talking about us on Reddit. If I had more time, I could have jumped into the conversation and added some info.
Here is an example of one of our competitors where I could have jumped in as well and leaked some traffic back to SERPWoo.
Maybe I want results about a competitor that also include another term, but not another competitor. You know, to refine what I am looking for.
And when you really need to hone in on the right results, we allow you to add in 5 negative terms to weed out results that match your term, but aren't really what you are looking for.
At the moment, we allow you the ability to monitor up to 5 terms at once. And we have no silly "250 results a month" limit either. Who wants to be limited in life?
Actually, we have no set limits on the amount of results you get monthly for any of your terms!
We display the last 30 days of results online, right in SERPWoo. You can see everything as it comes in and can filter it by platform, and also filter by positive or negative keywords that you input.
We also offer an export option for those of you that want your results for the last 90 days and in CSV format.
And for being a loyal paid member of SERPWoo, you get all this for free. No extra costs!
