Why would Google Alerts send me an alert about a year-old post on my own blog that I deleted weeks ago? Weird.

Google Alerts is a good way to find out which spam sites are stealing my content, but it's not like I can do anything about it once I find them. I've been using Google Alerts on my own name and the name of my blog for a long time-long enough to know nobody in the world is talking about me.

Do you use Google Alerts, and if so, for what purpose?

  1. No I don't, but I'd be interested in hearing more. How does it work?

  2. I tried google alerts but it kept alerting on my comments. I couldn't see spamming myself, so I deleted it.

  3. I use it to see if anyone's linked to my blog. Usually it's just the WP auto-link thing. No one's scraped me in a long time. I'm irrelevant now I guess. :)
