What will you build with the Trackur API?

In case you didn’t already know, Trackur offers two flavors of social media monitoring API. Our full Monitoring API allows you to send us a keyword and then receive all media mentions for that keyword, including title, snippet, URL, sentiment and influence. With our Sentiment/Influence API, you can send us a keyword and a URL and we will analyze it and tell you how influential the source is and the sentiment score towards your keyword. With both APIs starting at less than $500 a month, they’re a great add-on for those offering news monitoring, SEO, link-building, and social CRM tools.

The two customer service metrics we obsess over–and you should too!

Trackur is not a full service social media monitoring tool. We don’t assign campaign managers to hold the hands of customers and we don’t charge high prices that go along with such a service. That doesn’t stop us from being obsessed about customer service. We know, as yesterday’s chart bears witness, that great customer service goes hand in hand with a great product. You need both if you want to be considered the best at what you do. So, we keep a close eye on the customer service metrics provided to us by our help desk software Zendesk. In particular,

Those that have been following us from the very beginning will remember that we even had a comparison chart showing how much better Trackur was, compared to Google Alerts.
