Able to set personal alerts based on search criteria so that I don't have to manually check. Breadth of search functionality is impressive due to Google integration.

The frequency which Google Alerts gets terms from web it's a bit lazy. Even when you know that a term is frequently used, it shows you little information.

we are able to conduct our online research & probes in half the time, for twice the results

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: For a free product, Google Alerts is an extremely powerful service that has allowed us to boost our productivity significantly. Our Grants team used to miss out on more than a few publications of funding opportunities and grant competitions, but that has not been the case since we started using Google Alerts to fish out keywords related to our grants of interest. It has really helped us.

Vorteile:

Google alerts is the simplest business tool to set up, and it comes free of any charges. And one of the features I love most about the service is that the flexibility it gives me in setting up the frequency of alerts and notifications. For less urgent subjects, I am able to avoid the inconvenience or distraction real-time alerts would cause; and for the much more pressing ones, I am able to stay on in sync with developments as they happen.

Nachteile:

Given the increased relevance of social media, I think it would be a great addition if Google Alerts were expanded to cover content from major social media platforms as well, since a great majority of interactions happen there.

Vorteile:

The ease of use and the ability to keep me on track is worth way more that I pay for!

I wish more people used it. We have created many users for Google Alerts through our business dealings with them. They see how it works for us and they use it based upon that. Google Alerts works.

Google Alerts Review

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: My overall experience with Google Alerts has been good. I have benefitted from getting varied sources of information which I would not have to go and conduct time staking research on.

Vorteile:

Google Alerts keeps me updated with the latest information. Which proves to be useful in my line of work.

Nachteile:

The specific words or search terms used and information shared might not be directly related to my area of expertise. The alerts on specific words at times are not directly relevant to the information I am seeking.

Staying Informed

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: When states were beginning to change the sales tax laws for how businesses needed to charge customers, I setup Google Alerts to keep me informed on the latest articles related to the laws being changed. This let me keep informed on which states were implementing changes and how I needed to adjust my business billing processes to ensure I was compliant.

Vorteile:

Being able to setup Alerts for various keywords allows me to easily stay informed on topics relevant to my business. I am able to keep receiving new information instead of having to research information continuously. The ability to set notification preferences with different timeframes and aggregation levels makes the Alerts relevant for me based on topic. Some alerts I like to receive weekly. Other alerts I have setup to send me the information continously.

Nachteile:

At times I receive false positive results from my Alerts. However, this is usually resolved by ensuring keywords are more specific. Using quotes around keywords can help improve the results as well. Sometimes I need to refine an alert to make sure it stays relevant and provides me the accurate results. Editing an alert is simple though, so it does not cause any issue.

I never have to miss an update anymore

5,0 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: Because I can get very caught up in work, I usually don’t have so much time on my hands to browse through endless web pages to fish out all the interesting updates on the topics I have interest in. With google alerts, I am able to keep up without the needing to sacrifice any of my work time.

Vorteile:

It’s free to use and allows a lot of flexibility in setting up the frequency of notifications. Therefore I am able to minimize distractions as much as possible, even while tracking high interest subjects or developments.

Nachteile:

Getting the search sources cover major social media websites will make it a complete solution.

be aware in real time with alerts!

4,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: Despite the fact that Google Alerts is a free service, it has enabled me to greatly increase my overall productivity. I have repeatedly lost out on funding opportunities and grant competitions that could have aided me in the past. Since I began using Google Alerts, I haven't missed a single grant opportunity or competition, and it has been a big benefit. It has been a tremendous benefit to me.

Vorteile:

It's the simplest, quickest, and most cost-effective method to get your business online, and it's completely free. And one of the features I enjoy the most about the service is its adaptability in terms of how frequently I receive notifications and communications. When working with less urgent topics, I can avoid the inconvenience or distraction caused by real-time alerts while yet staying informed of developments as they occur. Rather than being inconvenienced or distracted by real-time alerts, I am free to concentrate on more critical activities.

Nachteile:

Google Alerts should include content from key social media platforms, as this is where the vast majority of interactions occur, owing to social media's expanding relevance.

It is free, easy to use and very productive specially for being updated about any word / term. You may receive alert as soon as it is learnt by the google itself. It also benefits for gathering latest information about any word / term.

Nachteile:

Nothing I found to like least or dislike because it has benefited me a lot at no cost in efficient and productive way. However, some filters can be added.

Never Miss An Update About The Things You Care About

5,0 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: It is a valuable notification service for generating alerts on changes in content or targeted keywords. You can track what is important to you on a real-time basis. You can track important stuff as they happen. After implementing critical alerts, you are bound to comment something like this, “What an Idea!”

Vorteile:

1. Whenever there is a change in chosen keywords or related content, you will get alerts as notifications. 2. The moment there are new results, you will get email notifications. 3. You can customize the frequency of notifications and choose all results or the best ones. 4. You can keep the search terms as wide or narrow as you want. The more niche and specific the keyword is, the better the alerts will be. So it is better to narrow down your keywords. 5. You can choose sources for your alerts: news, blog, webpages, and more. 6. It is a free service from Google and prevents lots of manual searches, saving you time and money. 7. You will never miss critical updates. 8. You can also redirect your email alerts to RSS, especially when the number of notifications is large. By the way, you can create up to 1000 alerts. 9. It can become an effective intelligence tool for your business. 10. It is pretty easy to set up.

Nachteile:

1. It may be overwhelming if you are careless about the number of alerts and notifications. 2. It would be better if it included tracking of content inside leading social media platforms. 3. Some notifications may not be directly related to your keywords and may not be relevant at all.

Un outil très facile à utiliser permettant de suivre des sujets ou des sites grâce à des mots-clés

5,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: Je recommande google Alertes à toute personne qui sait utiliser les mots-clés pour effectuer une recherche. C'est un outil puissant et facile d'accès.

Vorteile:

J'aime la simplicité de l'outil car il suffit d'aller sur sa page Google reliée à son compte pour modifier les mots-clés. J'ai choisi l'envoi d'alertes quotidiennes mais le suivi peut être hebdomadaire. Cela me permet d'effectuer une veille gratuitement. Il peut permettre également de surveiller sa concurrence. J'utilise également Mention en complément.

Nachteile:

Il est difficile d'effectuer des recherches approfondies, notamment pour la veille médias. On passe forcément à côté de certains articles dans ce cas. Mais les logiciels de veilles medias sont. très chers alors que Google Alertes est gratuit.

I use Google Alerts for a long time, I'm a plastician arts teacher, it's a great tool to stay current in my job about important news for me in arts actualities and history of arts, I just have to set up artist names, museums, galleries, organisations or any keyword to stay alerted and up to date, no need to suscribe to many newsletters, I'm currently informed that is just great.

Google Alerts is very easy and rapid to use. You can choice your setting alerts ( dayly, weekly , source, language, region etc) and you receive it by mail it's a very useful assistant sofware for every research. And it's free to use.

Un outil pratique et simple pour surveiller. ses mots-clés

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Je suis très satisfait de l'outil car il est possible également de modifier ses alertes en temps réel. Il faut juste bien cibler ses mors-clés au départ.

Vorteile:

J'aime la simplicité. de l'outil qui permet de rentrer les mots-clés ou les lieux que l'on souhaite surveiller sur le web. Par exemple, pour mon activité, j'utilise des mots clés géographiques me permettant d'être alerté sur les ventes de bateaux à un endroit précis. Je reçois chaque jour une alerte avec une liste d'articles me permettant de me tenir informé de l'activité de mon secteur.

Nachteile:

Le nombre d'alertes gratuites est limité sur un mois. Si vous devez surveiller la presse, par exemple ,sur un mot-clé concurrentiel, vous devrez accéder à la version payante.

know the most in the least time

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Personally, I have loved it tremendously. I no longer digress so much while consuming news and event updates of interest. It therefore allows me to save precious time by doing all the filtering and searches for me.

Vorteile:

Tied to google, it sources its output from the largest domain possible. I hardly miss out on any development related on my subject or event of interest. Also, setting up alerts is quite easy and simple.

Nachteile:

Getting the optimal keywords composition can be quite tricky. Too broad and you get overwhelmed by notifications from several false or unrelated updates; too narrow and you might end up missing out on several important update sources.

A Great Way to Keep Track of Industry Trends

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall I have had a great experience with Alerts and I love that it comes free of charge. It really helps me to stay current with industry news and gives me ideas about what I can implement within my organization.

Vorteile:

I find it impressive that this product is made available for free. It's also very user-friendly, it took me all of two seconds to create alerts that help me keep track of trends in my industry. I also like how you can customize the frequency of these alerts so as to not flood your inbox.

Nachteile:

I'm very fond of using Alerts but I do wish there were more options in terms of the source. Most of the alerts are coming from web news but they are not being pulled from social media sources like Reddit which I find can also be a good information source.

Google Alerts is my go-to for checking my competition

5,0 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: Google Alerts is a great tool to find hidden business. No one would have the time to check all the sites and all the news releases, Google Alerts does it for you.

Vorteile:

Google Alerts is almost a "set it and forget it" software. Once you put in your search terms you are alerted with links to articles and sites where that term is used. It is how we first found out one of out major competitors were filing for bankruptcy! We have a pretty niche market, so it helps us find out when there is something or someone new in the industry as well as help find new projects.

Nachteile:

There are a lot of spam and churn sites that come through in the alerts, but you can find those pretty easily by looking at the URLs.
