This post is inspired by Jeff Turners post on Like A Dark Cloud, When Comments Get Ugly and Personal. That post has been rumbling around in my mind all day. So I was thinking………..
I use Google Alerts to keep up with what is being said About Ann Arbor Real Estate, Saline Real Estate, Missy Caulk, Blogs about Ann Arbor and other topics on the World Wide Web I want to be aware of.
Here is how it works:
1) Go to Google and sign up for an account if you don’t have one.
2) You will have a menu of The Services you can subscribe to. For instance: Google analytics, Google calendar, Google base, Google adwords, Gmail, and Google alerts to name a few.
3) Click on the Alerts logo and start to add anyting on the web you want to be alerted to, especially do your own name so you can see when anyone mentions you. The alert will come straight into your email.
In this exponential growth in blogging, it is good to see when you are mentioned or the cities we work in are mentioned.
Here is an example of a few of the Alerts I have received:
