Search: Google Alerts

Google alerts are useful ways to keep tabs on issues, people, events and topics you cover. Here’s how to set them  up.

Go to google.com/alerts

Fill out the box:


Search terms follow the usual Google search operators. To limit your search use “”s etc

You can select everything or limit your search to News, Blogs, Discussion or Videos

You can set the number of times you receive an email to once a day, once a week, or as it happens (in other words, when Google finds a match.)

You can choose to receive the alert as an email or as an RSS feed.
