Google Alerts

I came across this nice and useful feature from Google, which is Google Alerts.

Anytime a certain keyword or word combination is searched, you can receive a notification, and you can set that alert in several ways: (1) as it happens, (2) daily, and (3) weekly.

You can also set the number of results, which can be (1) 20, or (2) 50.

As in all things so wonderful (I say it is!), don't get too excited.

You just might be overwhelmed.

Test the waters, and decide your comfortable level. You're good to go!

I've just set up my alerts of 7 keywords, and I'm starting to enjoy it. Hopefully, the main purpose of it being a useful tool be fulfilled in me.

Have you tried Google Alerts yourself?
