I am posting this as I received a question from another ActiveRainer about how to set up Google alerts. And I am sure it has been posted before.
I have a Google alert set up for my own name, Newport Beach Real estate - and related topics to real estate in my area.
This is a great opportunity to find out what people are searching for and what comes up when they do. Also - it is a great opportunity to see how fast Google finds your blogs (I find this very interesting!).
So here goes -
1. Type in google alerts in your browser . . .
2. Or type in http://www.google.com/alerts in the address bar
Then - the Google alert page will ask you for your search terms - set up multiple accounts. I personally google my name and real estate related items in Newport Beach.
Then enter your email address and how often you want to receive it - and that is it . . .
I receive emails daily from what I have set up.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
