I liked DuckDuckGO - and SocialMention the most - SM offered a way to find out about obscure websites mentioning your business genre - Also the one that helped with plagerism is nice..
DuckDuckGo is awesome. Voted up. I also like the idea of SocialMention, but it didn't work well for me. Most of the results I got were not relevant.
@socialmention can be a good stepping stone for a general view of your brand online in user generated content
Use @socialmention to measure your share of voice. Compare to competitors. Refine strategy and execute again.
While SocialMention.com is a good idea, the tool itself did not deliver to me the results I can really use to measure my online presence. It is interesting, and I may come back to it from time to time to see what it turns up for my brand, but overall this is not a tool I will be adding to my regular anaytics measurements.
