Admit it. You've screened your calls at times thanks to caller ID. Caller ID is one of the most popular features on home and cell phones today. Wouldn't it be nice to know a bit more about who's "calling" for you on the Internet as well? In other words, who's Googling you?
ABC and Fox news have recently produced a news story that describes Ziggs' Search Alerts service as "caller ID for the Internet." If you're familiar with Ziggs Search Alerts, you may already know how valuable it is to get an email notification from Ziggs each time someone has searched for you and then viewed your Ziggs Profile through any search engine.
Elizabeth Yekhtikian, Account Director at Blanc and Otus, says she receives a search alert from Ziggs at least once per day. "I can check on the site and it shows me with little maps where the searches are coming from, and from exactly which town, within which state or part of the country or the world," said Yekhtikian.
You may be wondering how Ziggs knows where someone has searched for you from? Technology is the key, according to Tim DeMello, CEO Ziggs: "Every computer has a Web browser that has an IP address, which basically gives you a location," said DeMello. "It gives you the ability to time stamp it. So if someone goes to Google and they are in San Diego, we clearly know the time they went on and the time it came into us. We know what browser it came from." If you're a member at Ziggs, we share this information with you.
If you'd like to get notified and learn more about who's viewed your Ziggs Profile through any search engine, just register for free at Ziggs. This service and many others at Ziggs - services that help you develop an online profile and control your online image - are all free.
