Google Alerts - Another must for the Bloggers Toolkit

If you want to be at the forefront of breaking news it can help to set up various Google Alerts for the key words that are applicable to the topic of your website or Blog.

Daily, as it happens or weekly you can have the latest information that Google picks up on emailed to you automatically. To set this up you first of all need to be registered with and signed into Google. Then go to..

http://www.google.com/alerts

Google Alerts currently offers 5 variations of alerts - 'News', 'Web', 'Blogs', 'Groups', and 'Comprehensive'. ref: Google FAQs

A 'News' alert is an email aggregate of the latest news articles that contain the search terms of your choice and appear in the top ten results of your Google News search.
A 'Web' alert is an email aggregate of the latest web pages that contain the search terms of your choice and appear in the top twenty results of your Google Web search.
A 'Blogs' alert is an email aggregate of the latest blog posts that contain the search terms of your choice and appear in the top ten results of your Google Blog search.
A 'Groups' alert is an email aggregate of new posts that contain the search terms of your choice and appear in the top fifty results of your Google Groups search.
A 'Comprehensive' alert is an aggregate of the latest results from multiple sources into a single email to provide maximum coverage on the topic of your choice.
Enter the search terms that you are interested in, choose a type from the options above, add the frequency and your all good to go! Another useful tool.

Rob,
I've got news of another paid review type site for you:
http://www.sponsoredreviews.com/
Isn't up and running yet but should be soon. The reason I mention it is because it is likely they'll ask bloggers to write a review about their product to begin with - should be some quick cash (hopefully).
