#61 Google Alerts For CPD

Google Alerts

If you have a Google account (or something similar, they usually offer the same facilities), you can setup an alert on any topic that takes your fancy.

In Google, it works this way. Once you’ve logged in, click on ‘Settings’. Click on the ‘Accounts’ tab.

From there, choose ‘Google Account Settings’ and choose ‘Alerts’ from the list.

After that it’s a simple case of inserting your search term, choosing where you want Google to look, and how often you want this done. Supply an email address to receive the notifications and you’re done. Reverse this process to delete an alert, by going to your alerts page and choosing ‘Delete’.

Another simple but powerful tool. More information here.
