Hi Blurbpoint Media Friends,

Today I am going to demonstrate, how Google Alert can be utilized effectively. As we all know, we get an alert of the keyword which we have put in the alert as soon as Google index pages containing that keyword. But I don’t know you people know or don’t know about it, you can filter Google Alert Results. Suppose I only need news results then one has to select only news in the category.

The main thing I want to highlight to all my SEO Friends is that you can compare between all results and best results as per Google. If you have six or more months of data of all results vs best results then it will help you in building future SEO strategies. For example, You can collect the best news website data, best discussion websites, best blog websites, best video websites and best book website data which normally comes in the best results. Which type of content normally comes in best Results.

I have collected six months of data for one of my websites. It has helped me in finding the best article writer for our article submission service and press release submission service because I mainly get their articles and press releases in the best results. Hope you people like it. I am waiting for your valuable comments.
