    Read a very interesting blog post today from someone who uses Google alert to alert him whenever anyone posted anything to do with his keyword.

    here's the truncated url:

    theaveragegenius.net/forum-profile-links-and-stealth-seo-tactics

    And here's the interesting bit (for those who don't want to read the article):

    Obviously if Google Alerts was alerting him as to what was going on, then of course Google by definition knows something is happening too (I wonder if their spam team has alerts set up too!) LOL

    Careful out there and don't build links too fast.

    Yea, google knows everything that is going on, the only thing about alerts is they have to be paying special attention to what you are doing...out of the gazillions of nitches, sure they *could* be watching yours, but it's pretty unlikely.
