Dear PC Doctor:
I have a small business. I know that there are places online where customers review their experiences. I heard there’s a way to get an e-mail message whenever the name of my business shows up online. How do I do that?
It may be that you are thinking about a “Google alert.” A Google alert is a service you can sign up for, (with Google), which will send you an e-mail to let you know when Google finds new information on a topic of your choice.
To set up a Google alert, first log in to your Google account. (If you don’t have a Google account, first go to google.com, click Sign in, then click Create account.) Then, visit https://www.google.com/alerts on the internet. In the search box on top, enter the name of your business (example: Joe’s Pizza). You will also be asked to enter your e-mail address. Then, click CREATE ALERT. Soon, you will start receiving e-mails containing mentions of your business!
I hope this helps.
Until next time,
A note to the patron who dropped a PC Doctor question in the library’s book drop: please give us a call! We need to know a little bit more before we can help. Thank you!
