Reddit Alerts

You can use Syften to receive alerts whenever a thread is started or a comment is posted with the keywords you want to monitor. This allows you to be one of the first to comment on a new post or find discussions that are relevant to you or your business.

You can also monitor the activities of other users, see their posts and track their paid ads.

The Slack integration will deliver an alert to your channel within one minute. If someone posts a link to your article your team can give it that initial nudge needed to reach the top.
