    Interested in finding out about a solution that is strictly review monitoring -- and priced as such. We'll work next on the acquisition strategy, but that will be a longer haul and some excellent and reliable review monitoring will help keep the idea of a review strategy on the radar for a client.

    My understanding is that all of the vendors listed so far in this thread offer both monitoring and acquisition tools, or listing management and hoping to find an affordable, reliable strictly monitoring tool.

    Appreciate any assistance!

    Re: Grade.Us vs GetFiveStars vs Whoever Else

    It's a great question.
    So far the only "systems" I've seen have been home-grown & in-house for strictly review monitoring. Very often, spreadsheet based...

    Would be interesting if anyone is aware of anything else.

    Maybe a market opportunity?!

    BrightLocal have a great review monitoring tool which is essentially free if you use any of their other tools.

    Re: Grade.Us vs GetFiveStars vs Whoever Else

    It's true that most agencies/SEOs who do review management--and most of us vendors who serve them--see greater value in strategies that include the stuff that actually impacts an end-client's local visibility, such as review acquisition and amplification.

    Monitoring is arguably more valuable when serving those ends, so even those who offer it "free" on top of other services don't offer it unbundled.

    But the OP (PioneerMedia John) asks specifically about solutions that *don't* bundle monitoring with other stuff and are "priced as such". One that I've come across is freereviewmonitoring.com. I cannot vouch for the quality of the service--I did test it at one point with mixed results--but it does purport to offer what you're looking for, and at the right price ;-)

    Re: Grade.Us vs GetFiveStars vs Whoever Else

    Much belated thanks for the replies above. No question review strategy (monitoring and acquisition) is critical, couldn't agree more. Convincing client's is my challenge. Interestingly, it's the oldest companies with the best offline reputations that seem to struggle most with it IMHO.

    I think the monitoring is one thing that can nudge the client in that direction and fairly quickly. It's definitely worth more than free, but perhaps not as much as a tool that also provides acquisition functionality.
