Using Google Alerts for the inside scoop on Google I/O

23 January, 2011 § 1 Comment

Just a couple weeks ago I wrote a post on how to get the inside scoop on Google I/O. I listed a couple Twitter accounts to follow and also explained how to set up a Google Alert for details about conference registration.

Since setting up the Google Alert on January 1st, I gotten twenty-six alerts. Some have been interesting, most have been worthless, but one of them was great! It appears that Google indexed the preregistration page, and sent me an alert saying so.

While this alert didn’t allow me to register earlier than anybody else, I was able to know that registration was coming soon before I saw it on any other blogs.

    Hopefully the wounds have healed since Google I/O registration opened & closed so fast and you were minutes too late! This just shows that there is a lot of interest in these events and that Google perhaps should make more events. But I do think you had the right approach of using Google Alerts to get notified of when registration opens!
