How to Find Your Site Mentions on Social Networks

Dec 23, 2011   //   by Kristi Hines   //   SEO Blog, Social Media  //  12 Comments

Are you ever curiuos about your standings on social networks? See things like who has been sharing your content, how many shares / votes it has received, and more with the following URLs or Google search queries. Just replace domain.com with your domain!

Twitter

There are two ways you can see your tweets on Twitter. The first is to perform a real time search on Twitter itself using the following URL (be sure to use the dropdown to see All tweets). Use the Save this search button to save it to your Twitter profile or create a column for this search in HootSuite / Tweetdeck.

https://twitter.com/search?q=%domain.com%22

The second is to use Topsy.com, which will show you the tweet count next to results from your domain. Change the time range to see tweets from the past hour to all time, and click on the tweet count of a particular post will let you see who has tweeted it.

Facebook

Facebook search is a bit trickier – using their search bar, you will only get results when someone has typed your domain.com in the comment of their share, and only within the last 30 days. If you want to see a sampling of who is sharing your posts, try the following on Google.

site:facebook.com inurl:posts “domain.com”

Google+

When you search using Google+, you will get mentions of links from your domain that have been shared as well as anyone who has mentioned your domain in their comments.

https://plus.google.com/s/domain.com/posts

Topsy also has a search that will show the number of times a post has been shared on Google+. Just like the Twitter results, you can change the time range to see tweets from the past hour to all time, and click on the tweet count of a particular post will let you see who has tweeted it.

LinkedIn

You can search domain mentions on LinkedIn using the following URL. While it might not be that exciting because a lot of people feed their Twitter into their LinkedIn profile, the nice part is you can use the left side options to see people who tweet your content by location, company, industry, connections, and more. It may actually be a great way to meet new people that you can connect with – just check the box next to 3rd + Everyone under Network!

YouTube

If you’ve tagged a lot of your videos with your link, these will come up as well. But I did find that if you search for your domain, you might find some people who have mentioned or referenced it in their videos.

StumbleUpon

There were two ways to find out which pages from your site have been stumbled. The first was the long way which will allow you to use the Stumble button to go through pages from your domain on the StumbleUpon network, one by one. When I last tried this, I got a message that SU was “testing” some new feature and it didn’t work like it was supposed to. Not sure if that is a temporary thing or not.

http://www.stumbleupon.com/to/stumble/stumblethru:domain.com

As a substitute, you can use this Google search instead.

site:www.stumbleupon.com/url/domain.com/

Delicious

This URL will show you the pages from your domain that have been bookmarked by users on Delicious, the number of times each page has been saved, and the tags / descriptions that people have added.

http://delicious.com/search?p=domain.com

Digg

This URL will show you any pages dugg from your domain, including vote counts.

http://digg.com/search?q=site:domain.com

Reddit

The results may not always be pleasant with this network, but using this URL will help you find any mentions of your domain on Reddit.

http://www.reddit.com/domain/domain.com/

BizSugar

BizSugar is a great network for business news, so if your site has great business content, it may have ended up here. See which pages have been sugared using this URL!

http://www.bizsugar.com/search/domain.com

Pinterest

Pinterest is the latest and greatest social bookmarking site that allows you to create vision boards with images on the web (hint: you should optimize for it). This URL will let you see if any photos from your domain have been pinned by Pinterest users.

http://pinterest.com/source/domain.com/

Do you keep up with your site mentions on social media or bookmarking networks? What other ones do you follow?

    Hey Kristi, Great search tips here. I signed up for Twilerts and Social Mentions. I noticed that about a month ago, I stopped getting Social Mentions. I don’t know what’s behind that and I didn’t try to investigate. Twilerts are pretty reliable but most of the time I forget to look at them. Thanks for these.

    Best wishes and have a wonderful holiday Kristi!

    I tried the Pinterest one and got an error. Could this be because the link no longer works, or is it just because my site has not been shared?

      Hi Kristen. I hadn’t tried the Pinterest link with no results, but the 404 is a result of simply nothing from that domain being bookmarked. Once you have something bookmarked on their network from a domain, that link will start working! :)

    Thanks for the tips! They’re just what I need to help me look-up how my site scores in social networking sites. I know how to search by replacing domain.com with my domain but your tips in Twitter and Google + helped me a lot. Thanks.

    Social networking sites are good places to connect with your friends and meet new acquaintances. Because one has the ability to easily connect with other people, the value of social networking sites has now been viewed as more than a simple social activity. Many start-up and established businesses of all scales use social networking sites to advertise, promote, and market their products and services. Often times, these companies outsource work related to updating their status, posting notices, and sending out communication to individuals following their activities online. Therefore, this is one way to take advantage, and this is a good earning opportunity if you offer this kind of service as a freelancer.
