I want to use Google Alerts to search for a specific site with several interesting links:

site: mysite.com

However, I just want to monitor this site and no other sites and get the links which change on this site when they change.

Is this possible with Google?

I tried this with a website yesterday and it actually worked as expected using the query style you have there: site:mysite.com. It has yet to bring up any links from outside the site.


I don't think this is possible with Google Alerts, but there are a number of other products that do exactly what you're looking for. I used https://www.followthatpage.com/ and I'm pretty happy with it so far.

  • Follow that page threw an error when I tried signing up. I signed up at visualping.io for daily updates which are free. It has paid plans for more frequent updates. Commented Mar 24 at 11:22
