Follow developing stories, from your inbox.

Google Alerts is a powerful tool that helps you stay on top of all the things that are important to you. Once you set it up, you’ll get email notifications any time Google finds new results on topics you care about.


For example, if you’re a reporter covering a specific beat, creating alerts on relevant keywords will help you stay up-to-date with emails that support your research.
