I wish to set-up a custom alert that highlights unexpected sources, for example a formerly unknown site linking to mine.

This can be done setting the "compare to past" check-box and then login at the list for a +100% change AND the previous visits are equal to 0

I'd like to automate this, but I can't find the right options when building a custom alerts.


Check out InboundLinkAlerts by embeddedanalytics. The service was built precisely to detect new linking sites.
