10,000 Birds on Google blog alert

Mike's post about The Songs of Wild Birds by Lang Elliott appeared in a recent Google blog alert for the word "bird." Congrats to the I and the Bird creator!

Just curious: Can someone explain how some blogs that include the word "bird" appear on a Google blog alert and so many others don't? There are numerous birding blogs, but so few appear on the blog alerts.

Thanks, Amy, for pointing this out. I had no idea. Guess all those cookies I've been sending to the Googleplex are starting to pay off!

I have noticed my blog and a few other birding blogs appear on Google alerts under various search terms. I am not sure what makes the difference. Maybe it's the use of a Google Site Map or Adsense.

I've not familar with Google blogger alerts, Amy. I wouldn't even know where to start looking for them. Would you mind expanding on this topic?

John,

If you want a one-stop sign-up for various types of alerts (news, blog, web, etc.), you can visit Google Alerts.

I had subscribed to news alerts for "bird" a long time ago. The blog alerts started in the last month or so (I think).

You also can go to Google Blog Search and enter a search term.
