There are a few ways to easily keep track of what others are saying about your Free Software project. In a very popular project, you may already have enough feedback from its busy forum or mailing list, but in new and small projects, you often have to actively seek feedback/comments from end-users.

Here are a few ways to find out what people are saying online about your project.

Google Alerts

I have also signed up for the following Google Alert:

  • Search terms:
  • Type: Comprehensive
  • Deliver to: Email
  • How often: as-it-happens

which emails me anytime someone links to my project's homepage in one of the resources indexed by Google.


In addition to Google Alerts, I also subscribe to the Talkwalker Alerts service with the following alert:

  • Result type: (leave blank for Everything)
  • Language: All languages

  • How many: All results
