google alertsWelcome to Google Alerts. All you need is a google account and a deep desire to be a fly on the wall on conversations based on your words of interest.  To get this happening, go to Google Alerts and enter the words you would like to monitor. When google finds the word, you’ll get an email with the thread.

Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your choice of query or topic.

Some handy uses of Google 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

The world is getting smaller.
