How do I use Google alerts to monitor the SERPs?
i don't use Google alert as keyword position checker tool.. even they fill my inbox with unuse mails
i do monitoring of my keywords manual..
Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your queries. so everything you need is based on your query in google alerts.
You can use Google alerts if you have any query to be solved but instead of using Google alerts for checking keyword rank, I would personally suggest you to do a manual analyses of keywords.
Yea, very well said.. The keyword's ranking should be checked manually as it will give you correct results.. On the other hand Google alerts will help you best in solving queries..
