As your monitoring needs grow or change, you might want to adjust the settings of your diverse alert searches. On your Mention account, you can change the configuration of your alerts at any time! In Edit mode, you have the option to:

  • Add or remove the keywords you are monitoring

  • Adjust the URLs you are tracking through Monitored Pages

  • Choose your language or country monitoring preferences

  • Blacklist websites

  • And more!

This option to edit alerts is available for Administrators and Users, but not for Guests, who have read-only access.

❗️Please note that, if you modify an existing Alert, the mentions collected until you do the changes remain the same. Removing or deleting content from your Feed does not give back your Quota.
