A nice way to find out when you get back-links and Google indexes your pages

    To do this go to:
    http://www.google.com/alerts

    Fill in the form like this, for back-links:
    Type 'link:www.yourdomain.com' (Without quotes) in the 'Search term' field
    Change 'Type' to 'Web'
    Change 'How often' to 'as-it-happens'
    And write your email address in the 'Your email' field

    Google will send you an email with a confirmation link, click that link and you are all set, you will get emails when ever Google updates your back-links. (Internally they update every day though)

    If you want to get emails when ever Google indexes a page on your website, go to:
    http://www.google.com/alerts

    Type 'site:www.yourdomain.com' (Without quotes) in the 'Search term' field
    Fill all the other fields as above and you are all set.

    Also if you want to get an email when someone writes about you:

    Go to:
    http://www.google.com/alerts

    Fill in the form like this:
    Type "www.yourdomain.com" (with double quotes) in the 'Search term' field
    Change 'Type' to 'Comprehensive' <-- Only for these ones; for back-links and indexed pages be sure to choose 'Web'
    Change 'How often' to 'as-it-happens'
    And write your email address in the 'Your email' field

    Now make another alert like this:
    Type "Exact Title of Your Website" (with double quotes) in the 'Search term' field
    Change 'Type' to 'Comprehensive'
    Change 'How often' to 'as-it-happens'
    And write your email address in the 'Your email' field

    And you are all set:)

    It would be even nicer if Google actually showed you more than a tiny fraction of your backlinks :rolleyes:

    This tool will send you an email (almost instantly) for example when that 7 increases to 8 or so.

    I have been using google alerts for some time now for my blog. Its really a cool thing and would show me whenever somebody links to my blog or whenever my page is indexed with google.
