Quick hack for managing your online presence

The web is often construed as this one giant place things get lost. You can post something and it disappears into the ether. Someone can post something about you on the internet and you'd never even know it.

Until today.

One little known secret is that you can monitor anytime a website posts something about you.

How is this possible?

Google Alerts.

 This is my setup here. Feel free to add these alerts to your account if you're obsessed with getting the latest scoop on me!

Whenever anything about you gets posted to a website online, Google Alerts will let you know by sending an email to you.

Amazing if you're a writer who's content might get referenced somewhere else.

Also, if you're doing work for a company and your job is to manage their PR (public relations), this is a solid way to track if and where you're getting coverage. This is just one of many useful tools for being in the know about what people think about your company.

So quick one from me today, but hope that helps you manage your online presence better!
