Setting up Google Alerts is a simple process — you don’t even have to have a Gmail account to use Google Alerts.

Go to http://www.google.com/alerts/ where you’ll see this page:Sign in if you have a Gmail account. If you don’t have a Gmail account, you can just start filling out the Google Alert form.
Enter the search terms you want the Google Alert to track, separated by commas. You can edit this later if you find you have too many or too few terms. If you’re not sure what to track, start with your name and your blog’s name. You may also want to include keyword phrases related to your brand and your niche.
Choose the Type of results you want Google Alerts to find and share with you.You can choose from the following:
— News
— Blogs
— Video
— Discussions
— Books
— Everything (so you can track it all)
Choose how often you’d like to receive your Google Alerts. I like to receive mine once a day or even once a week simply because I’m trying to cut down on the time I spend checking e-mail. However, if you’re tracking a timely project or news story, you may want to choose as-it-happens. Likewise, if you’re just keeping tabs on something that mildly interests you, but isn’t critical, you can choose once a week.
Choose how many results you want to get. You can receive “only the best results” or “everything” depending on your needs.
Choose where you’d like the Google Alerts delivered. If you have a Gmail account, you can receive them via gmail. If you’d rather, you can receive them via RSS or another e-mail account.
Click the Create Alert button and finish.
