Have you ever wished you could be a fly in a wall in a room where your fans talked candidly about what they liked and disliked about your music? Google Alerts lets you do just that. Google will scour the internet for conversations about your music and deposit that info right in you email inbox.
Google Alerts are “email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your choice of query or topic.”
By setting Google Alerts for your own band name, songs, and album titles, you’ll be able to stay on top of everything people are saying about you online. Plus, you can customize your results by choosing the type of source (blog, news, video, etc.) and frequency of notifications (instantly, daily, or weekly).
Setting Google Alerts will allow you to:
* see when your music goes live on many of CD Baby’s retail partner sites like AmazonMP3.
* monitor online chatter about your work so you can respond to fans and thank music critics who’ve written reviews.
* gauge the effectiveness of your promotional efforts.
