Mention.com Alternative

Founded in 2012 in Paris, Mention.com is the biggest player in the keyword mention market. It's a multi-million dollar company that has access to sources Syften can only dream of. So how does it compare?

Mention.com Comparison

Mention.com divides it's plans into those with basic alerts and those with boolean alerts. Boolean alerts (similar to Syften filters) are available on the Enterprise plan, and what can I say - if you have the money that plan is probably better than Syften. The comparison below only takes into account their Free, Solo and Starter plan (all priced at or below $99/month).

Mention.com Feature Syften

Undisclosed, but possibly the whole Internet Sources A few select communities

Summary

Use Mention.com on the Enteprise plan if you have the money, as it's probably better than Syften.

Use Mention.com on the Free plan if you just want to monitor one keyword across the Internet.

Use Syften if you want many advanced filters to monitor your niche or scout for leads.

Trivia

There is bad blood between Mention.com and Syften as they threatened to sue us in a rather rude and pushy way.
