What is ThreadRadar?

ThreadRadar watches threads and comments on platforms like reddit, Product Hunt, Indie Hackers, and Hacker News. You specify a keyword that you want us to look out for (e.g. "ecommerce platform") and we'll send you an email and/or a text message whenever this term is mentioned within a comment.






Why do I need ThreadRadar?

Replying to comments on public Internet forums like reddit, Product Hunt, Indie Hackers, and Hacker News is a proven tactic to generate long-tail, passive traffic and improves your search-engine ranking for niche search terms. You could manually scour the Interwebs for people who are looking for a solution that your product addresses, but there are better ways to spend your time - let us proactively alert you in real-time so that you can jump into the conversation while it's still taking place.

Can't I simply search Google for the same keywords?

Absolutely, but Google often takes weeks to index comment threads. So when you find a thread via Google, the conversation has likely already moved on and your reply won't be seen, as newer threads/comments have pushed the thread outside of the users' view.






How does it work?

When using ThreadRadar, you specify the terms that we should watch out for, and which platforms you want us to monitor. Whenever we find a match, we'll notify you via email and/or text message in real-time. You can also opt to receive a summary of mentions every 12 or 24 hours so that you don't get flooded with alerts, especially when monitoring popular keywords.

How much does it cost?

You can try all our features for free with one keyword for 14 days - no credit card needed! After the trial period, you can select from three different subscription plans, depending on how many keywords you want to monitor simultaneously.




Can I cancel my subscription?

All our plans are "month-to-month" plans, so you can cancel at any time, no questions asked.
