Setting Up Google Alerts to Monitor Companies and Industry News

In the video below we are taking a look at setting up Google Alerts. What is a Google Alert? A Google Alert is a simple system where you tell Google a certain phrase and everytime Google finds a new site that has those terms within the page, blog, site, video or group, Google will send you an alert. Go ahead and check out the video: (you can view in full screen by clicking the button with the 4 arrows)

Some things to note:
The more targeted your search term, the better your results are going to be. Get specific with locations and job titles, use longer queries and don't be afraid to test things out. It costs you nothing and you can opt out at anytime to individual alerts.

Take "sales job in Orlando" and change that to "inside telephone sales job + Orlando, FL"
Make "hotel news" and optimize that into "new hotels opening in Orlando, FL"

Please leave any questions or comments below and we will be happy to help you out!
