Google Alerts are a simple way to monitor mentions of your blog online. Sign in with your Google account, and register the words you want to keep track of (such as your name, or blog’s name) and set the alert frequency.
Google Analytics is Google‘s tracking tool. Once tracking code is placed within a blog, bloggers can receive info including unique visitors and page views. Another feature is “In-Page Analytics” which is similar to a heat map.
Google Sites allow you to easily create a free website. Sites can be worked on by groups, and attachments or info from Google Docs and other apps can be added. It can be edited by yourself or a team of people.
