There are many things that you can do to ensure the success of your Internet marketing business, and one of the most important things that you can do is keep track of the success of your websites. Knowing how well your websites are doing will let you know if you need to modify them in any way so that you can have greater success with them. Plus, it is always just good to know where your websites stand.
You can keep track of your websites in many different ways, but one of the best tools that you can use is Google Alerts. I have mentioned before that Google is one of the most important search engines on the World Wide Web. In all actuality, your standing with Google can make or break your business. Because of these, using a tool like Google Alerts will allow you to see how your website is doing on the Goggle search engine.
With Google Alerts, you can find out what is being said about your websites, you can current with your competitors, you can also find the latest breaking news and information related to your website; which will also help to tell you how your business is doing.
So, how does Google Alerts work? It’s really simple, actually. You start by going to google.com/alerts. Once you arrive on the page, you will see a box that will prompt you to enter your search query. Here, you will enter in the website, the terms or whatever it is that you want to check the status of on Google. You can then choose the type of results that you want from the pull down box; news, blogs, videos and discussions are some of the options that you have. You can also choose how many results you will get and how often you get the results. Once you have entered all of your information, you then enter your email address and select “Manage Alerts.” With the click of the mouse, Google Alerts will notify you, via email, when there are any updates regarding your search query.
With Google Alerts, you will be able to see how your business is doing on the Google search engine with ease. You will be able to monitor what is being said about your business, what other people are saying about it, as well as how your competitors are doing. If you aren’t already doing so, I highly suggest you start monitoring your websites with Google alerts.
