Suddenly I have received many questions related to various google products so I have decided to deal with all of these questions with the common posts like this one rather than answering each question individually. So keep watching for more as there are many interesting questions.

What is Google Alerts?

Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your choice of query or topic.

So many interesting blogs and so little time! If you’re anything like me, you like to pick and choose what posts you read on any given blog. You may only want to read a post about a topic of your interest, or perhaps you only want to read blog posts by a particular writer or two. Hence the new Blog Alert, which notifies you about new blog search results.

Google Alerts enables you to set up an email alert on a daily or weekly basis or if you prefer, in real time.

How to Use Google Alerts?

Some handy uses of Google Alerts include:

  • monitoring a developing news story
  • keeping current on a competitor or industry
  • getting the latest on a celebrity or event
  • keeping tabs on your favorite sports teams
  • accessing statistics to use in presentations, reports and articles
  • identifying potential joint ventures and strategic alliances
  • discovering new business tools
  • research for my book
  • content for my products, programmes and live events.

Here are the Steps to Sign for Google Alerts and start using it immediately:

1. Create a google account first.

2. Go to Google Alerts page.

3. Now type in a keyword or a phrase in the google alerts form that you want to be notified about.

4. Confirm your email. Now you are done!

Now, all you do is wait, and once an active discussions are located, Google Alerts will send you a e-mail verifying that there is an active discussion talking about that specific keyword.
