I'm not sure what took me so long to begin using Google Alerts, but this has quickly become one of my favorite Google tools. It's incredibly simple and very valuable for any organization!
Do you ever Google yourself or the name of the Church/Organization that you lead? Of course you do! Google Alerts will simply save you time and email you updates from what they find about you online.
It's simple just like most other Google products:
- Go go http://Google.com/Alerts
- Type in the word or phrase that you want to search
- Choose how often you want to be alerted
- Input your email address
Just like that you'll begin receiving alerts about any topic, person, organization, etc. that you would like. I have about 10 words/phrases that I'm alerted of and it has proven to be incredibly valuable!
