I’ve discussed why I think its important to set Google Alerts, and I hope you’ve considered the reasons. Not only does it allow me to immediately see breaking news stories related to the domain industry, but it also helps me find articles I may have missed otherwise.
I want to share my domain-related Google Alerts.
“Dark Blue Sea”
I have most of my alerts set to Comprehensive as it happens, allowing me to receive them nearly instantly, as they are indexed in Google. Since I get dozens of alerts every day, you may opt to set your delivery to once per day or week. Keep in mind, the more alerts you set, the more emails you will receive.
It’s also a good idea to set alerts for your domain names and websites as well. I have many Burbank, Lowell, and Newburyport related alerts as well.
You can get them via RSS Feed now and if you’re getting a ton of emails, I think you’ll appreciate this :.)
I setup google alerts and have certain terms directly fed into my twitter account via RSS. A couple of your blog entries, including this one have actually been send to me via google alerts.

Google Alerts are great, especially for sourcing blog posts (although not always their own Blogspot blogs, strangely) and although their Google News service is superb, they don’t pick up on all sources – other aggregators such as Moreover or NewsNow often index sites which Google doesn’t.
Domain news/blogs/articles feed sites which try to ‘cover all bases’ are best for web-based live updates. This is what I’ve tried to do with my own domain news & auction listing sites: http://domaindizzy.com and http://domaindizzy.com/auctions/
