I Heart Great Tips

I love it when I'm reading on the loops or on a blog about a problem an author is having, and then read a very easy and sensible solution.

Take for instance Google alerts.  I have an alert set up for Linda Mooney, but I may get a ton of responses, some for just Linda, some for only Mooney, but not that many with Linda Mooney.

Here's the tip.  Put your alert words in quotation marks like this:  "Linda Mooney".  From then on you will get alerts ONLY for those words, and in that order.

Cool, yes?
