There are plenty of ways to get a healthy (or obsessive) dose of finding out what’s being said about you on the web. There are numerous search engines out there where you can grab an RSS feed and keep up-to-date about when your name or brand has been mentioned. However, none come close to the Addictomatic search engine.

Beneficial To The Egotistical
This is a cool service for ego maniacs or for those with a handful of keywords to watch who are looking for better ways to manage their searches in one place. You can personalize which sources are listed. However, the bummer is that you can’t add more personal sources for search.
