Once you confirm your alerts, a page will show up saying that your alert has been created. If you are not able to see this page, you must go back to the initial email and re-click on the confirmation link. Please remember to repeat clicking on the links for each of the new alerts you create.

This is an example alert notification that you will receive by email. They are very similar to Google results. There will be links to the pages where new media mentions that include your names are shown. You are suggested to visit them, take screenshots and include them in your press appearances if possible. If you have a website, you could also comment under some of the articles where possible, and say for example: further works can be seen here: and provide a web address for people to check.

If you have won a design award, you might also want to track the name of your project, because sometimes your name could be not included, omitted, or simply confused. Therefore it is best to set-up a special alert for your design name. The steps to confirm this alert is the same as others. Click and verify the confirmation email.

Furthermore, you might also like to track media appearances for your design studio or company name; i.e. your brand name. You are also highly suggested to set-up an alert for tracking your brand name as well. Once you have set-up all three alerts, you will be able to track all the online media appearances and mentions where your name, your design name or your brand name is mentioned.
