Aibek Esengulov 06-07-2008

Google Alerts is an extremely useful service that helps you monitor and stay up to date on latest developments about any product, website, blog, person, news story etc. It continuously scans web for relevant stories and delivers updates to your email address.

News Alert Email

There are 6 types available: News, Blogs, Web, Comprehensive, Groups and Video. News alert monitors news sources, Blogs for tracking blogs, and so on.

Google Alerts News

Some ways to use Google Alerts:

  • Stay up to date on a developing news story.
  • Get latest news on a celebrity, your favorite sports team or event.
  • Be the first to know when you or your website make the news.
  • Stay current on a competitor.

What makes Google Alerts particularly useful is the ability to use standard Google Operands like quotation marks, OR and AND connectors. For instance setting up an alert for Clinton AND Obama will bring you all news stories that mentions both of them.

Registration is not required, all it needs is an email address where you want to receive the alerts. Though if you subscribe you will be able to manage and edit their alerts from one place.

    I know I am replying to an old post. I was researching web alerts tools and I cam across this site which has some really good features which I felt apt to share with you. was launched last month. It's a new service in the market which actually has the potential to overtake all the other web alert online services, including Google Alerts. It helps you track just about anything - movies, books, youtube videos, events, jobs, birthdays….just anything and everything which is traceable on the internet. It also provides real time RSS feeds and alerts of things like job listings, product prices and financial information, which is really cool.
