I'm looking for a script that can notify a user about posts (by others) that include a link to their profile or any of their posts. Does one exist?

Not possible wit the API due to quota limitations. Use the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. – Brock Adams Feb 24 '14 at 21:39
You could probably do this with a combination of search for profile links and /questions/{ids}/linked. – Bill the Lizard Feb 25 '14 at 2:58
@BrockAdams is this still not possible? – Tim May 14 '15 at 15:57
@Tim, Something that's "close enough" might be doable on lower traffic sites. Pretty sure it will still bust quota on sites like Stack Overflow for at least some users -- especially when polling is factored in. – Brock Adams May 14 '15 at 22:08
