Once you have added alerts according to your requirement, you can see all the set Google alerts on the same page. You can always edit any alerts settings & modify it.

Manage Google Alerts

I would suggest you to create alerts for topics that you like to read always. Ensure that you don’t end up adding a lot of alerts, as you will be bombarded with emails.

If you will use it wisely, you can be the first one to create any breaking news. Don’t over do the alert, else you won’t be able to keep up with all the updates.


Do add your domain name, brand name, your name, email in Google alerts. This way you will stay notified when somebody is talking about you or your brand.

    I’ve been using Google Alerts for a long time. I don’t worry about the Alerts clogging my Inbox because I just set up an email account (using my domain) specifically for the alerts.

  2. Stefan says

    This is actually a great tip for everyone who is blogging or maintain a niche site. At the moment I’m still using Google News for updated within my niches but I guess it’s time to change.

  3. Veera says

    yup. it’s a nice idea to use Google Alert as information source.

    Another tip: You can set an alert for your site/name (for example, Shoutmeloud) so that if someone in the universe referring your site/name, you will immediately get an alert. :)
