Monitor your web presence

I’ve been using Google Alerts for some time to track the online visibility of faculty and researchers here at WCER and other topics of interest to me professionally and personally. I like Alerts because you have lots of options, including tracking online news stories, or blogs, or news groups, or a comprehensive search of all the above. You get a notification email once a day, once a week, or as it happens, depending on your choice. You register for a free Google account and start keying in the phrases you want Alerts to track, for example “teacher salaries” or “autism” or “educational podcast” or “educational technology”, then you get a separate email for each subject you track.
If you want to try it out, here’s the link.
Happy hunting.
