    Google Alerts is a content change detection and notification service, offered by the search engine company Google. The service sends emails to the user when it finds new results—such as web pages, newspaper articles, blogs, or scientific research—that match the user's search term.

    Google Alerts is fairly easy to set up, and it’s main purpose is to monitor the web in search of keywords a user wants to keep track of.

    The way it works is based on Google indexing a veriety of websites. The bigger a given website is, the more often it is indexed, which results in Google Alerts being up to date with whatever’s new in relation to a keyword you set up in your alert.

    The thing is, in most cases, notifications have major delays, and the time from when a mention appears on the web to actually getting a notification is way too long to react in real-time, I am afraid.

    I can tell you that Google Alerts misses out on a lot of results, too. Plus, it doesn’t collect results from social media, and that’s where majority of online conversations happen these days.

    Yet, I still come across people every now and then who claim Google Alerts as their go-to internet monitoring tool. That’s not a good thing.

    There are quite a few alternatives to have a look at if you’re expecting quality results from your keyword monitoring, just to mention Brand24 (it’s a biased recommendation - a proud team member here!).

    It allows for tracking keyword mentions across different digital media, including social media and blogs, news sites, message boards and forums etc.

    Once the monitoring project is created, the tool starts picking up all mentions containing the chosen keywords and delivers the results to a user.

    Not only will it collect mentions for you but also compliment it with a number of different metrics that can be crucial for you as far as your reputation is concerned. That includes:

    number of mentions
    social media reach
    number of likes, shares and comments
    influencer score
    sentiment filter
    location

    Each of them will help you evaluate which mentions you should reply to in the first place. That’s thanks to the reach a social media post or a piece of content could potentially have, or the influnce an author has on his or her audience.

    Not to overwhelm you with too much information, I just wanted to add that that Brand24 is just one of the social media monitoring that you can try as a replacement for Google Alerts and there are many more like Sysomos or SocialMention that you could test to see which one is best for your needs.
