No I didn’t lose my mind – this came about tonight as you all know that I love using Google Alerts – well have you ever added your name, your website, your report, your blog in there and see what others are seeing. I have always Google myself once in awhile just to see what others are seeing BUT this makes it lot easier as it comes to your email immediately.
If you have not tried Google Alerts yet then go and set this up and give it a try. Now you don’t have to set up alot of alerts to research yourself and you are wondering why in the world would I want to read about myself. Well what better way to find out if you are putting the right image out on the net that you are wanting for one and the other – it’s a great TEST to see if you what you are doing is really getting out there.
I know you are thinking that the minute that you hit send, publish, etc – haven’t you ever been curious how fast it shows up on Google – I know I have. Well I have to say that it’s amazing how fast things to show up and even more amazing how quick that you are sent the alerts.
This last week, just out of curiosity – I set up Google Alerts with my name and my blog name as I wanted to see what would pop up in the alerts and I have to say that I was shocked. This is a great way to see what you did for the day also – sure was an eye-opener for me.
Each day I have a routine of things that I do (or at least try to do) and then when I have them done then I add some of the weekly things that I do – and the one that I have been working on is writing more blog post – on as many sites that I can and then also using my alerts to post on other’s blogs that are in my niche.
Now what I did was set them up to be delivered daily and what a wow. This has not only showed me that my stuff is getting out there but also showed me just what I’m getting done in a day. Now I understand why I go to bed exhausted lol It’s also been interesting how ofter your name is mentioned by someone else – yea that shows up also
Well, I know you are curious now – so go ahead go to Google Alerts and put in your name and your blog name and wait till you see what happens. Now don’t do that and go on vacation for a day or two – you do have to be doing something lolololol
So how many are going to go and research yourself?
