Track Your Writing With Google Alerts

Google Alerts are email updates of the latest Google results based on a “search term”. For example, I have a Google Alert set up for “Writer’s Residence” and get an email whenever a blog or website mentions that phrase.

Writer’s can also use Google Alerts as a handy way to see when their articles are published on websites. Susan Johnston at Urban Muse has this tip:

Here’s how to do it: Go to Google.com/alerts and create an alert for “Your name” Site:website.com. For instance, I could set up an alert for Experience.com by typing “Susan Johnston” site:Experience.com. Then, once I find a new article I’ve written, I bookmark it in Delicious for future reference.
