Have you set up your Fiverr Gig Google Alerts


#1

So I have been commenting several times about how I use Google alerts to drop me a message when there is any internet activity in regards to te keywords I set up alerts for. Anyhow I thought I would let you all know on how to do this:



First off you need to go to this link and have a email address to activate this service



http://www.google.com/alerts/create



You would enter your first keyword in search query and then set up how you would like the alerts to be emailed to you

Result Type

How Often

How Many



I have my results set to

Everything

Once a day

Everything



Since I have a family tree gig my keywords are census, ancestry etc… I also set up an alert for my fiverr screename tn5rr2012 so anytime anyone posts about me I get an alert.



I hope this explains how google alerts work and I hope people get the same benefit I do from mine. Here is a screen shot of the screen you will see

I am glad I was finally feeling well enough to be able to post this, glad you all got something from this post


#5

This is great info :slight_smile:



To expand upon your post, as users may wonder why they need these kinds of updates - it is a great way to find current information being posted, related to your gig’s service- which you can use to promote your service/create a backlink through a comment. That is just how I use it, I would love to hear other peoples uses :slight_smile:



It’s also fun to Google your Fiverr username, I do it randomly and love seeing articles featuring me and my work

really useful information ! thanks for sharing it. I’ll give it a try

That’s really cool. I use Google alerts to get news but I never would’ve thought you use it for Fiverr! I might need to change my user name to something a little more unique, though lol.

Another user recommended Google Alerts to me last month, and I been using it ever since. I use it to catch people trying to resell my gigs and to see who’s using my keyword phrase. I got an alert the other day about a guy trying to sell one of my gigs for $25, he even stole my image from my fiverr gig. I messaged him as if I was going to order, but he didn’t respond. I had to modify my gig because of this sneakiness. This is one tool that all serious sellers can benefit from.



Twistedweb123 brought up a good point. I read an article that suggested setting up google alerts to get notified about relevant articles, then post a comment on it promoting your service. You gotta sound natural and not spammy though of course. If you do it right, that could be a good way to get some very targeted traffic. :slight_smile:

I am glad everyone has received some good use from this. I am not sure how I ever found out about the alerts but I am glad I did
