Google Alerts

Reading Larry Ferlazzo's website earlier this month, he mentioned Google Alerts and the ability to have them now appear in your RSS feed. I was aware of this feature but had never tried it.

I signed into my Google account and headed over to the Google Products page, by going to the more link and then to the even more>> button from the drop down list. I chose Alerts and was able to set up a RSS feed in just minutes. The feeds showed up in my Google Reader immediately and I could manipulate them the same way I do any feed.

Cool! Now, I have links fed to my Reader regarding items I'm following or search for regularly.
