It can sometimes be overwhelming and time consuming to keep up with your web
presence. Do you know if others are talking about you on the different social networks and blogs? Are you engaging in these discussions about “you”?
These discussions may be not even be negative but instead may be a simple mention
or even praise. If it is a negative comment or discussion are you there to defend
yourself in a timely manner? If it is positive are you there to give your thanks?
SETUP GOOGLE ALERTS
so now you may be asking yourself “How the heck do I monitor all
that is being said about me on the huge web space?” The easiest
way I have found is Google Alerts http://www.google.com/alerts.
You can setup alerts that monitor your name, your company, etc. You can choose
to have these alerts sent to your email or a feed. I set mine to deliver to
a feed because I can then easily look at that feed each day through the Google
feed reader and respond quickly.
TWITTER SEARCH FEED
addition, I add a Twitter search feed to my Google reader. You can get the Twitter
search feed by going to http://search.twitter.com, perform a search for your
name and then click the “Feed this query” link.
DISCUSSIONS ABOUT YOU IN ONE PLACE
Once you have the Twitter feed, you can simply add it to your Google Reader.
Now you have web, blog, news and Twitter discussions about you all in once place.
This makes it much easier to respond and connect with others who are discussing
Let me know if you have other tricks or methods you use to monitor what’s
being discussed about you. I would love to hear them.
