I am a newb to the forum as a poster but a long-time reader. I am looking for advice from someone that has successfully gotten their site content / articles to show up on google alerts for a specific keyword. We have a client where a win for them would be to show up under their main keyword anytime an article is posted.
I know the name of the game is to be a content authority and be regualarly spidered.
If you have a road map of what you had done and how to best go about it, I would greatly appreciate it.
google alerts are mostly for news articles / press releases. Thus, write a news article and/or press release with the keywords you're going after and submit them to newswires (free or paid). Make sure the keyword is there, but don't spam it.. just try to make it interesting and you're sure to get an alert. I get them all the time.
Articles get spidered and linked but they shouldn't get google alerts really.
oh yeah make sure your email is set up to receive the alert you are looking for :)
Thanks for the replies... I do understand that Google alert is for News PR and Blogs. But how do you get a news site(our site, provides specific indusrty news) to show whenever new content is added to the site.
I see other sites that are not PR releases and blogs being found in the alerts when they have new content pertaining to the alert keyword.
