The Power Of Google Alert

On a daily basis you may be spending quite some time generating publicity for yourself and don't always get to see the fruits of your labor. Maybe you have sent a few hundred press releases out to media outlets and not even a cricket is heard back. You may be amazed to know how many people are actually writing about you and giving your music rotation without you being aware. A sure fire way to know who and what press is paying attention regardless if it is a write up or album review is to utilize Google Alerts. The advantage to using Google Alerts is made evident by receiving an email any time Google indexes a new mention of your artist name or band on the web. Your settings dictate how often you will be emailed.

Google Alerts can tracks things such as:

Album reviews

Press mentions

Incoming links to your site

Fans talking about your music

Show reviews

And any other place you get mentioned on the web!
