How do you keep track of when you are quoted or replied to here and on other internet forums?

Simple question. Lots of times someone will quote me after I've left a thread and I won't find out until much later. This is a shame because it hinders conversation.
I've tried setting up a Google alert for my handle, but this hasn't always worked and tends to return too many false positives. On some sites a direct quote will be formatted like "posted by [my name]" or something, for some reason setting this up works sometimes but not always. When it does work, it tends to appear days after the fact. What do you do, and why isn't there a company getting rich on this?
