Would you like to be notified automatically whenever something new has been posted on the web about your industry? Would you like to be notified anytime your competitor runs a sale or offers something new? Would you like to be notified anytime someone writes something about you on the web? In this post I am going to talk to you about a free service from google that can do all of that for you.
What is Google Alerts
Google Alerts is a free service from Google where you can enter some “keywords” or “phrases” that you would like to be notified on whenever Google finds something new on the web about that keyword or phrase. Google will send you an email (daily, weekly, or as it happens) with a link to what was posted and a short summary of what was posted.
