What is Social Searcher?

Ever heard of Social Searcher? I must admit I had not used a social media search engine up until recently …

Social networks are an integral tool for business in today’s digital world. With the growing number of subscribers on these networks, businesses are finding greater significance in using them to market, maintain good relations with customers and track the progress of their products in the market. Though so much useful information is generated as people continue to use social media, the normal search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo are not efficient enough when searching for content in social media networks. The search engines often produce too much information, most of which is unnecessary. Social Searcher Business reputation Monitoring tool is a social media search tool that’s designed to find content on social media networks by filtering out unnecessary results from other sources and thus making the search simpler, more effective and less time consuming.

How to use Social Searcher

Basic search: Social Searcher allows you to do a simple real time search through a wide collection of social networks including the Web, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also search for content posted on other social sites in the recent past. Specifically, on:

The social media search tool runs the query across all the platforms and dishes up comprehensive data.

The user can scroll up and down, left and right through the each column and the entire search results. Alternatively, one can search for content in a particular social network by clicking the network’s icon. All social networks are listed at the bottom in the grey area.


Analytics: After the basic search, Social Searcher allows you to perform simple and in-depth data analytics. You are able to view the number of results from each site, popular content (such as shared Facebook posts and retweeted tweets), the source and type of the content, sentiment, keywords, and links to the content. The results also feature helpful charts that can help one to know how many times the search phrase has been mentioned and whether the mention is positive or negative.

    This review has most definitely helped me, certainly an education. I had not heard of a Social Searcher – Social Media Search, I clicked on the link and to my surprise it listed all options, this could save me time in building up my business, I do find that having to log in and out, scroll down all sites very time consuming but with this tool I will have more energy focusing on my content. Just need a little more information re costing though please unless I have missed that within your review? Sorry I’ve read the paragraph that mentions and explains the pricing. I very much look forward to putting this into practise 🙂
