I understand you can set up an alert that tells you when someone googles my name.  Where do i set up the alert?

Thanks Dingus!

Jim, you can learn more about Google Alerts in the Google Alerts Help Center as well:

Note: Google Alerts will not do exactly what you asked for.  It will not tell you when or who is doing a search on your name, it will only tell you about new content on the web that matches your alert criteria.  A web search is not the same as content.

If somebody created a blog with your name in it, then you might get an alert on that type of activity.

Hmmm, I wonder if Jim is still looking ... here about 8 months later ;-)
