Google Alerts

If you have ever missed important information because you had not searched the Web for a couple of days, you will greatly appreciate this Google Alerts.

Go to [http://www.google.com/alerts] and log in. Then choose a search string or a topic that you want to be notified about if new stuff appears in the search results for this string and topic.

For instance, I have several topics that I regularly monitor the Web about and it is really valuable when I get results delivered right to my mailbox, rather than perform searches manually and wonder if a particular entry is a new one or not.
