Google Alerts

I wanted to introduce my fellow handcrafters to a great tool call Google Alerts. I'm sure most of my fellow handcrafters that have been around for awhile already use this helpful tool, but it's a great reminder.

You use google tools to search for certain terms. It can be your business name, products you make, blog addresses, website address, or anything. Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your choice of query or topic.

Using Google Alerts is a great way to see who is praising you or giving you hints to improve. Who knows you may even see someone who gives you the most sincerest form of flattery.
