Google Alert!


Google Alert provides users with regular updates on upto three 'search strings' or 'keywords' of their choice. My top three are 'artist illustrator', 'Jonathan Furness' and 'Ultralab'.

Essentially this service performs these three searches and emails you (sometimes daily) with the details of any new webpages containing these keywords. Handy if you are interested in how your website or chosen keywords are being used on the Internet.

Here's an example of what Google Alert can send you.....

Google Alert has new results which can also be browsed interactively:

I've just been using the alert over the last couple of days to keep track of something - its excellent and today I had the same thought as you, of setting up an alert for Ultralab and Ultraversity. Its amazing - cuts down on searches. Maybe the Ultralab alert could be used to feed stuff into the News page on the web site.
