Keep an eye on what the internet says about you

People talk. And we talk about people. That’s what we do, we’re only human! Wouldn’t it be great to be told when someone says something about you though?

People talk about you!

We are blessed with a plethora of tools that allow us broadcast our opinions and thoughts. And that is great, right? But what happens when you (or your company) are the subject of a conversation and your name pops in? Wouldn’t you like to know?

Luckily, there is an easy way to keep an eye out for what is being published.

Keep an eye on what they say

There are too many websites/platforms for you to be in a position to monitor who says what and where. Luckily, Google created (back in 2003!) this fantastic tool that helps you do just that: Google Alerts.

Google Alerts is a content change detection and notification service, offered by the search engine company Google. The service sends emails to you when it finds new results—such as web pages, newspaper articles, blogs, or scientific research—that match the user’s search term. It allows you to monitor the Web for pre-set keywords.

Handy, isn’t it?

How to set your Google Alerts

Setting up Google Alerts is incredibly easy and useful:

  1. Go to google.com/alerts. Make sure you’re logged in!
  2. Choose your keywords.  Try to make them non generic — specific keywords will help you get targeted results.
  3. Select the frequency. Do you want to receive the notifications as they happen or periodically? The choice is yours.
  4. Choose your sources. Google Alerts doesn’t cover social media but you have some flexibility on where they will look for you.
