When you want to get mentions by Country through your Alert, you need to know that these mentions may include extra information related to their location.
❗️Please note that some mentions do not come with location-related information, either because such information is hidden, or because the mentions come through a service that has a location which does not reflect the end-user's (Facebook, Instagram)
★ For Basic Alerts
You will monitor all the Countries by default when you create your Basic Alert.
If you want to monitor your keywords for different countries, you can select them in the Countries section of your Alert settings. You can select up to 10 countries.
★ For Standard Alerts
The Standard Alert can monitor up to 10 languages in your search. If you do not pick specific countries to monitor, then the alert will just monitor every country!
You can find the the country monitoring menu in your Standard Alert query on the right-hand side. From there, you can click on the drop-down menu to filter your countries.
★ For Advanced Alerts
Thanks to the Advanced Alerts, Mention can monitor all the Countries, by using the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes.
You can monitor all the Countries if you do not use any language filter in your Boolean Query.
If you want to search for mentions in specific countries, you need to add the Country Operator (source_country:).
This Operator only works for Web, News, Blogs, Forums and Twitter.
Here's an example, if I'm looking for everything related to Nike Air Max in France only:
("Nike Air Max" AND source_country:(FR))
You can combine different countries using this operator.
You can search for the Country code that you need to monitor in this page.
