Google Tools - Google Alerts Keep You Informed

Google Tools - Google Alerts Keep You Informed

Why would anyone go searching the web for content of Interest?  How do you protect your Brand and your reputation?  What system do you have in place to inform you if someone is writing or talking about you or your company on the Internet?  How do so many people know so much about what's going on in their industry and how do they keep up with it all?

EASY!  Google Alerts.  Google Alerts allows you to create and setup alerts that notify you via email any time the keywords, phrases, or names you enter get picked up by the search engines and the Google Alerts management tools.  A great example is your name or company name.  If you setup a Google Alert to notify you anytime your name or company is published on a website or Blog post, you'll get an email on a daily basis.  This allows you to monitor and track anything and everything ever said about you.

Google Alerts lets you setup topics and search terms, what type of alerts you want, comprehensive, blogs etc.  You can create an email notification campaign and select how often and how many al;erts you want, and specify which email address you want them sent to.  Google will not sell or share your email address.

On an even more beneficial note, imagine having notifications coming to you about your competitor, your favorite topics, new technology, Industry news, even sports updates and stockmarket information. Why go out and serach for this stuff when you have time (which none of us do) when you can have it delivered to your email inbox daily?

If you're not currently using Google Alerts, you are missing put on one of the most powerful tools Google has to offer.  Instead of me alerting you via this Blog post, you could have setup a "Google Alert" for "Google Tools" and been notified via an email.  Now you're probably checking the date on this post to see just how late you really are to the game.

Google's Gmail - The Best Email Service on Earth

Image via Wikipedia
What makes Google email the best email service in the world?  There are three reasons that every Internet user should be using Google email.  These are three of the most powerful tools and why many are now changing to gmail.  

1. First is Google Voice

A Deaf, Hard-Of-Hearing or Speech-Impaired per...When you setup a gmail account, make sure you setup a Google voice account at the same time. This allows people to contact you via your custom phone and voice mail number which gets transcribed and then converted to text and sent to you via Gmail email. The transcription is not always the best but the ability to play the message withing the email message makes it very convenient to receive and manage your email along with all your voice mail messages.

2. Second is Attachments

Using video in communication now days is a powerful tool not only for business, but for personal use as well.  Youtube is owned by Google and it the largest video hosting site in the world. When you attach a video link to a gmail email, the video is displayed at the bottom of your email as an attachment and can be played and reviewed without ever having to leave the email message.  This is a convenience for both the sender and the receiver.

3. Third is Video and Chat Messaging

Once you build up a suitable database of contacts in your gmail contact database, the ease of instant communication makes Google Gmail a great resource for accessing all your clients, friends, associates etc from your inbox.  If any of your contacts are online at any given time, you can click on their name, send them a chat message, and if video is available on both computers, have instant video chat with a single click.

Google email keeps expanding with new and exciting features and benefits like "Google Buzz" and others, and there are many more great features and useful tools with gmail, but these are the three we use most often and find the most beneficial at this time in our online business and busy social media lives.
