Tech Tips: Keeping up to Date Using Google Alerts

Filed under: cool internet stuff,helpful hints,media related — Honilima @ 9:40 am


Google Alerts is a simple way to keep track of yourself, your town, a topic that interests you most, or any other word or topic you can think up. When you log into Google Alerts you can set up so that as it happens, daily, or once a week. You can set how many things you want sent at one and have everything about a certain word or name be streamed into a notification sent to your e-mail address.

Are you a teacher who wants to know what is being said by your students about your classes? Do you want to keep up with the news in the small town you were raised in? Do you own a restaurant and want to keep track of comments made? Or a business competitor you hope to track of on-line? Then a Google Alert will be just the ticket to keep you current as to what is being posted on-line on a topic or name of your choosing.
