Researching a specific topic? This tool is brilliant.
Did you know that you can get Google Alert emails when new news and information regarding a specific keyword, phrase or niche of your selection.
Simply go to http://www.google.com/alerts/ and type in the search terms you want the app to track, separate them with commas. (If you don’t have a Gmail account you can still fill out the form.)
There are lots of settings to choose from including the types of results or sources you’d like Google Alerts to find and send to you.
You can even go back and change the alert settings later if you need to.
Remember to assess each source for reliability and objectivity!
