Google News Alerts are sent by email when news articles appear online that match the topics you specify. Some handy uses of Google News 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
Too bad it doesn't search blogs too, huh?
Of course, we've had alerts on Yahoo! for ages.
