What is this for?
Similar to Google News alerts, but we alert you via RSS, see below for more information. You can choose whatever keyword(s) you want to be alerted on, and if the word(s) all appear in any one of our articles, you will get notified of the headline of the article and a link so you can read it.
RSS, what's that?
See the left side of this page.
But why by RSS?
Because RSS has many advantages over Email, even though you can still get these alerts into your email (keep reading, we'll come to that.) Some of the advantages are that you get to choose where, when and how you are alerted, unlike with Email most of which never gets read (expired accounts, junk mail, too much to read...).
Give me some cool ideas?
First, get yourself a cool RSS reader if you don't already have one, or an RSS alerter. (See the left side of this page for some ideas). We recommend Thunderbird because this can be used for both Email and RSS and has many other advantages.
Then just use the box below (which you can also find at the bottom of any of our news articles), to create as many RSS alerts as you wish.
How do I start?
Easy. Just type the keyword or keywords that you want to get alerts for, whenever they appear in a news article. So if you want to be alerted for Your Company Name, put that into the box. But remember, if you want to get all alerts about either Toshiba OR Budapest, then you should put the 3 words: Toshiba OR Budapest into the box. If you want only articles that contain BOTH words, then you put Toshiba Budapest. So, if you have many interests, be sure to put OR between each word, or make many seperate alerts, unless all the words must be found within a single story.
Then just copy the http address from the top of your browser on the page that will come up when you press the button, and paste that into your RSS reader or alerter. Bloggers, site owners, add headlines to your site.
