Using Google Alerts?

 

Video Instruction: Google Alerts Tutorial

Back in 2007 we wrote up a ‘Google Alerts Tutorial’ to point out how incredibly useful it can be to automate ‘the gather of information’ you might want or need. Google Alerts is an incredibly simple solution, allowing you to be alerted via email when information, news and / or articles surface on any targeted subject.

Some useful examples for the use of Google Alerts might include:

  • If someone was writing about you or your company;
  • If there’s any news or conversations on any topics particularly relevant to you;
  • If you are looking for hot subjects to write up as blog posts;
  • If there’s anything going on with competitors or competitive products;

And the list is endless for the application of Google Alerts!
