Google alert is one very useful tool for blogger. All the professional blogger takes help of google_alert_logo Google alert to set alerts for the topic on their niche to get notified about what’s happening on the web.

In official terms

Google Alert is the web’s leading automated search and web intelligence solution, allowing you to catch new information as it appears. Google Alert uses its unique Web Intelligence technology to track the entire web for your personalized topics and send you new results by daily email.

Though the things has changes now, You can also opt for feed subscription option to subscribe to alert. In my opinion it’s better then unlimited Email alerts.

How to Create an Alert using Google Alert

  • Go to Google Alert website
  • Login using your Gmail ID

  • If Email : Than Select the Delivery frequency.

    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.

    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.

  • Veera

    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. :)
