Are you an expert in programming or someone who have interest in photography or you enjoying traveling to different part of the world? What ever be our profession or expertise we have some interest in some areas. At the same time we are also interested in knowing the related development around the world on our favorite topics. We can do a regular search on our area to know but search results are not that much dynamic to tell us recent developments or to monitor the daily changes. One of the best ways to know or update ourselves on the news and developments is to subscribe to Google Alert.
You can manage different types of alert and also specify the frequency of the alert. Every day I receive one email ( alert ) for each of my area updating me about the subject. Some of my favorite alerts are
Corporate Social Responsibility
I have some other alerts on travel and photography.
