Setting up Google Alerts for Email
Why use Google Alerts?
Having Google deliver the most relevant information about a specific topic right to your inbox is a huge time saver. If you want to keep up to date on what is going on in your own industry, or if you simply want to keep up to date on the latest in fashion or technology, Google Alerts can help. You choose the topics and Google delivers the results.
So now that you’ve decided you like the idea, how do you set up a Google Alert?
You will need a Google account in order to use this service. Creating a Google Account is easy and well worth the effort.
- Visit Google Alerts
- In the Google Alerts search box, type in the subject you’re interested in. As soon as you do, you will see a preview of the content Google would include in the alert for that term.
- If you click on “show options” to the right, you can choose how often you want the alert delivered, where you want the content pulled from, the language, the region, and whether you want all results, or only the best.
- Enter your email and click on create alert.
- You can create as many alerts as you would like in the same way as you set up the first.
You will now receive an email with the latest news, or blog posts, depending on your choice in the where the content was pulled from, on your chosen subject.
Now you can filter through and see what you would like to share with your clients or just simply read the articles for your self.
