There's an excellent article one of our writers (Merle) posted about the 20 tools for tracking social media marketing. I used some of her recommended tools and discovered I'd been named as member of the "League of Extraordinary Internet Marketers." Move over Sean Connery! LOL I also discovered that IdeaMarketers had been selected as one of LeadTails Best Article Directories of 2009.
If your "ears are burning" as Merle puts it, find out where people are talking about you in the social media world using her list of 20 tools. Here are a few of my favorites she listed. I recommend getting the full list of tools for tracking your social media marketing.
My favorites from Merle's article:
1) BackTweets : A search engine for Twitter. See who's tweeting your links and more. Can also sign up for email alerts of new findings.
2) Addictomatic : A little different than the others , you type in a keyword, topic or phrase and out it goes searching the top blogs, news sites, Google, Technorati, Ask, YouTube, Flickr, Digg, Topix and more. You'll be given a personalized results page to bookmark with everything it finds related to your topic.
3) BlogPulse : A search engine that searches only for data posted to blogs. Enter your keyword, hit submit and off it goes to gather results.
Again, I recommend getting the full list of Merle's tools for tracking your social media marketing.
