Google Alerts™ is another very useful content monitoring service that sends you emails when it finds new information about any search term you want to monitor on the Web. This free service works similarly to the search function in the Google® search engine, except that it keeps watch for your keywords in case they appear on the Internet in the future. You can use Google Alerts™ for getting news or tracking someone or any topic. People often use the service to get the latest information on celebrities, athletes, a company, product or developing news.

Below, read how to set up Google Alerts™ and customize it to get the updates you want in your email inbox.

Setting up the Google Alerts™ Service:

  1. Open your Internet browser and go to the Google Alerts™ website.
  2. In the “Search query” box, write the name of the person you want to track. You can add more specific information, such as occupation, hometown, etc.
  3. In the “Result type” dropdown menu, select what kind of information you want to receive (e.g, news, blogs, video, discussions or books).
  4. In the “How often” dropdown menu, select an interval for how often you want to be sent an email.
  5. In the “How many” dropdown menu, select the type of news you want to receive, either only the best or all results.
  6. Type your email address in the “Deliver to” box.
  7. Click the “CREATE ALERT” button to finish the action.
