Use Google Alerts to keep up to date
Google Alerts monitors the web and sends you an email notification when Google finds new results on a topic that interests you.
- Think of it as a selection of interesting content (that you define) from familiar and far-flung places on the web.
- You can choose how often (as-it-happens, daily or weekly) you want to receive an email. There are also several other customisation options such as region, language and sources.
- It is easy to sharing content from a Google Alert on other platforms.
How I Use It
I have Google Alerts for:
- digital literacy
- my name (several spelling variations)
- my business and
- libraries zealand
There are plenty of tools available for keeping up-to-date through email digests, which ones do you use?
