How does this differ to using Google Alerts?

Market Monitor builds on the process that someone might already have with Google Alerts. For one, it'll do the work of trying to make sure that an article is contextually about your business or a competitor business rather than just an article which contains the name.

Imagine a company called "Orange" (those in the UK can use their memory instead!). A Google Alert for 'Orange' would fire more often than we'd like, so Market Monitor checks that the article is also about the industry that they operate in as well, namely the mobile telecoms sector. Combine that with some more analysis, and Market Monitor returns far more contextually relevant results – with less setup from you.
