Monitor your business with Google Alerts

Monitor your business with Google Alerts

You can keep tabs on your business online and in real time using Google Alerts, a free and easy- to-use content change detection and notification service. You can even use this tool to monitor your competitors. Read on to learn how it can help you.

What is Google Alerts?

Google Alerts allows you to monitor the web for interesting new content on topics of interest to your business. It can also be used to alert you whenever your business is mentioned anywhere online, whether on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or wherever.

How do You Sign Up For Google Alerts?

Signing up and using this service is easy peasy! Just visit the Google Alert website, log in to your preferred Google account (if you have multiple accounts), and type in the words and phrases for which you want to receive alerts.

How does Google Alerts Work?

Just type your business’s name into your Google Alerts account, and whenever Google encounters relevant posts that mention your company, it will send you an email alert. This is an easy way to get notifications about articles featuring you or your business as soon as the posts go live.

Modify how often you want to be alerted

An avalanche of notifications can be overwhelming, especially if they’re cluttering your email. The great thing about Google Alerts is that it’s completely customizable. If you find that a keyword isn’t relevant to you anymore, you can change or delete it. You can even choose how frequent you want to receive emails and tweak the settings so you can receive the same alert across multiple email accounts in just a few clicks.

The benefits

With Google Alerts, you can easily keep track of your business without having to filter through irrelevant pieces of information that you come across when scrolling through your feed. With this tool, you can record all reviews about your business, competitors, clients, and suppliers in real time, allowing you to stay prepared and one step ahead of the competition.
