Setting Domain Google Alerts

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.

    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: and
