1. Create Google Alerts for Your Name
Unsurprisingly, Google is one of the best ways to monitor your Google searches. Although you cannot use Google to find out who is searching you, setting up Google Alerts ensures you are notified as soon as any content is published using your name as well as whenever Google has a new search entry containing your name. You will want to take note of the sorts of information published about you, which may reveal the source. Should you find anything defamatory or potentially harmful to you or your company’s reputation, RMG Digital is able to ensure rapid, effective measures are put in place to stop the damage before it starts.
2. Monitor Your Facebook
Facebook can be especially useful when trying to find out who is looking for you within your circle of friends. No one is certain how exactly this algorithm works, but if you view your profile, the first friends whose icons appear in your friends list are said to have the most interaction with your account. Should something suspicious appear in Google, it would be wise to take note of any unusual people popping up on your profiles friends list.
3. Optimize Your Website
Having your own website has a number of professional benefits, but the ability to monitor user traffic is possibly one of the most useful. Because of this, it is essential that your website has the most up-to-date content and appears high on Google Search Results. RMG Digital has innovative measures to boost your page so that your website appears as one of the first search results, allowing you to monitor your audience effectively.
