Effortless social media monitoring
Get notified every time someone mentions your brand or name on some of the major social platforms

Supported platforms

Hacker News

How does it work?

First, we are monitoring all supported platforms 24/7. Almost in real time. Second, you list the keywords that you are interested in. Then, we send you an email notice when any of the keywords are mentioned.

You can organize your keywords in projects and have notifications sent to different recipients per project.

Use cases

Some of the typical use cases are:
  • Start-Ups monitoring their brand and their competitors.
  • PR agencies monitoring their customers mentions.

When am I going to receive mention notices?

You will receive a notice as soon as we have found a match of one of the keywords that you are monitoring. In most cases, that will be within 30-60 seconds after a post or comment is published. Then, we will wait for the "cooldown" period to pass before sending you another notice. If there were new matches during the cooldown period, we will buffer and send them along with the next notice.

What does it mean that the service is in 'beta'?

It means that we are actively working on improving the service, and any feedback is more than welcome. Please see the "contacts" section at the bottom of the homepage.

Which platforms do you support?

We support the following platforms:

  • Reddit ~ 1.5 Billion monthly visits
  • Hacker News ~ 10.3 Million monthly visits
  • ~ 8.2 Million monthly visits

What about other popular platforms?

  • Facebook - no support. We don't plan supporting mentions on Facebook due to its closed nature.
  • Twitter - work in progress. It should be supported in the following months.
  • Blogs - planned. This will be supported in the future.
  • Custom websites - planned. This will be supported in the future through public RSS/Atom feeds.

How many keywords can I monitor?

You can monitor up to 5 keywords for free. That is suitable for indie developers that want to monitor mentions of their own product or side-project. Please see our pricing section if you want to monitor more keywords.

Do you have an API or any means of programmatic integration with other services?

We don't have an API yet, but that is planned. In the future, you will be able to manage your keywords & projects automatically. Also, you will be able to receive instant notices through webhooks. Furthermore, we will integrate Zappier so that you will be able to link Alertcamp to many other services.


As being a lean startup that uses modern and efficient technologies, we are able to offer you the best value of social media monitoring.

  • 🔠 Keywords are case sensitive. i.e. "Alertcamp" and "alertcamp" are two different keywords.
  • 🔤 We don't allow monitoring of the most common English words (e.g. cat, dog, sun, etc). Also, if there are tens of thousands of keyword mentions per day, we may regard it as too common and disable it.
  • 💼 Projects are a simple means to help you organize your keywords logically.
  • Cooldown period is the time in which we will buffer new notices. If you have'nt received any notices recently, we will send you a "keyword match" notice immediately. Otherwise, the notice will be sent after the cooldown period has passed. This is done so that we don't flood your inbox.
  • 💳 We support all major credit cards, and all payments are processed securely by Stripe. Also, you can cancel with one click whenever you want.
