Do you have a specialized topic you'd like to keep tabs on? Is there something in the news you'd like to follow? Are you interested in what blogs say about something? Do you find yourself constantly searching for the same term?

If so, you need to set up a Google Alert. Google will send you an email when there are new results for your search, so you can keep up to date without constantly running searches for the same words.

To get started, go to www.google.com/alerts.
