How to to feed Google Alerts into a RSS Reader

In this lesson I will show you how to monitor a specific keyword using Google Alerts and how to feed the results into your favorite RSS Reader. I use Google Reader as my RSS Reader. You can use any RSS reader that you like. This is especially important if you want to monitor a specific news item, a market niche (think keywords). By default, Google Alerts sends you an e-mail whenever an article with your keyword shows up in Google.

Go to Google Alerts Website
