That's right. Google Alerts. I know what you are wondering right now. What in the heck is a google alert? Google Alerts are email updates sent to you of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your queries. A google alert is a great way to monitor what is being said on the internet about a particular topic.
For example, let's say you are really interested in a particular gallery. If you set up a google alert for this gallery then google monitors the web for interesting content and sends you an email anytime there is new news about the gallery.
So why do you need a google alert? It is important to know when there is news about something important to you on the web. Some things you should set up a google alert for are:
1. your name
2. any art galleries you are in or would like to be in
3. a particular style of painting, medium or subject matter that you would like to stay informed about
4. an artist you admire and would like to learn from
5. Anything else that interest you.
Every artist should create a google alert for their own name. It's a great way to keep up to date about what's being said about you on the internet. I find articles and blog posts that mention my name through google alerts and it's often the only way I know to thank people for mentioning me! To set up a google alert just go to this page and create as many as you want. You can determine how much information you want to receive and how often you want to receive the alerts. Google alerts are a great way to keep updated on what is happening on the web. I like the alerts because they let me know when my name is mentioned on a blog and I can then comment and thank the author for the shout outs!
