The Online Marketer's Home Page

Mar 12th

Using iGoogle or Google Apps you can easily create a page like this, which tracks brand mentions on blogs and other active parts of the web. If you know why people are talking about you then you can create more things they may talk about. If nobody is talking about you then you need to stir up conversation. :)

Incredible idea! i actually use your keyword tool on my iGoogle page now. I never thought of keeping tabs on other things though. I also never heard of partner pages. Thanks for the info

Another bookmarkable post! I knew something like this would be possible, but hadn't put much thought into actually working on one. Nice page! These resources are great to have all in one place.

I have created a few gadgets and stuff so far but I would be interested to see how you make the page full themed to your brand, can you point me in the right direction at all Aaron?

[edit] Do you have to be in the Google Partners Group?

Hi Diablos
You can theme it inside of Google Apps.

That is excellent. Sort of like a Google alert compilation.
But if the goal of the page is to monitor branding PR on google links, I would like to see some sort of quantitative metric, a meter (e.g. pagerank) to use in my toolbox full of other meters, which is really the way I monitor degrees of success.

I think that WHAT people are saying is far more important than their PageRank. Recently a person basically made a post saying they stole my ebook and loved it and would have gladly paid for it. That is much better than a high PageRank person referencing me in a negative light.

True dat.
I am always looking for ways to quantify the qualitative, but
as you said, the details count.
