Google Alerts – nice, but… – great for getting regular search results in niche areas – mine are for Hao Wu, Abdelkareem Soliman, Tony Greenstein, academic boycott and Personal Learning Environments. This is a good complement to syndication – I can spread a wider net than if I relied on a few sources. My only problems with it are that the longest interval between emails is a week – reckon they should offer monthly and quarterly (for keeping up with imprisoned bloggers, for example) and that I want to aggregate my search results rather than receiving them by email. But still, it’s good.
