Help me set up a Google Alerts, Analytics or other search to spot sketchy use of my nonprofit’s name and logo!

I’m not fluent in internet searches but I learn fast. I want to set up a search (or multiple searches) of websites, as well as Facebook and also YouTube for video. My goal is to look for sketchy use of my nonprofit’s name so I can decide whether to take action for illegal use of our name and logo. That means that I don’t want to monitor my organization’s own website, which seems to be the purpose of Google Analytics. I also want to be able to weed out mention of our name in mainstream newspapers, which is likely to be legitimate. Rather, I want to see what else is coming up out there. Maybe a few Google Alerts are the way to go – in which case can you help me set this up? But maybe there are other tools I should know about? Also, do I need to set up separate searches for YouTube, Facebook and Twitter?
