Wondering how to keep on top of your online presence? You can easily find out whether you, your competitors or your favourite subjects have found their way into Google. By setting up a Google Alert, you can receive free emails that note news, blog and website mentions of anything you desire. You can limit how often you’re alerted — from immediately to weekly.
I’ve been using Google Alerts for several years to monitor my clients’ media and PR mentions. However, I also now use the service to see whether other blogs have mentioned me or Consultant Journal.
