Setting Up Google Alert – How?
Setting up Google Alerts is very easy and takes seconds to do. This is what the form looks like:
In the Search Query box, you can enter the term you want be alerted for. Have a look at my examples above and see which ones you can utilize for your site.
In the Result Type box, I always select to receive alerts for everything.
The How Often box allows you to choose between once a week, once a day, or as it happens. I change this based on what I want to achieve. For example, I want alerts about site security as it happens, but only want new guest post opportunities every week.
In the How Many box, I always choose All Results to make sure I don’t miss anything.
The Deliver To box, lets you choose to have the alerts delivered via email or RSS. I tend to have things like brand-related alerts delivered by email and have link building opportunities delivered via RSS in Google Reader.
Once you have set everything up, you will get new alerts forever! It might take an hour or so to set up, but it is worth every minute of your time, and you can set up as many alerts as you want.
