Advanced Alerts enhance the quality of your results and allow you to monitor the topics that matter to you. Here are some features provided by advanced alerts:

  • Much more keywords: use up to 2,000 characters!

Let's discover together how to set properly the Advanced Alerts:

1. Create a new Advanced Alert

To get started, you will need to select in the left column at the bottom the option Add a new Alert. From there, select the third option titled Advanced Alert. The other options will bring you to the Basic Alert and Standard Alert creation flows.


2. Discover the Advanced Alerts

Here's a quick tutorial video that goes into the layout of the alert page as well as the different features you will have access to with the advanced alerts!

Topics covered include:

The Boolean Query Page

Monitored Pages

Blocked Websites

Historical Data


3. Define your keywords

On the first tab you can start listing the keywords you want to monitor using our available Boolean Operators to define whether the keywords should be monitored separately, in pairs, or any other way. In the below example the keywords are separately monitored using the 'OR' operator.

❗️Please note that if Historical Data for Twitter is activated, your Boolean Query has a limit of 2048 characters.

4. Preview option

The Mention Preview will allow you to view the potential quota consumption of your alert. Clicking the preview button allows you to see an estimate of how many mentions your alert would receive in a 30 day period based on your current search terms. It can be used to avoid exceeding your monthly quota before you create or save your alert.

❗️Please note that the Twitter mentions preview is not available for Advanced Alerts when you use the NEAR operator. If you want to get a more accurate preview for the rest of the Sources while using this operator, you need to disable the Twitter source first.


5. Save your Alert

After all of that you can save your new Alert! Your new alert will begin fetching for content on the web immediately upon creation.
