This week tech bite is Google Alert.

What it will do:
Google Alerts are emails automatically sent to you when there are new Google results for your search terms.

How it Works:
Google Alerts currently offers 6 variations of alerts - 'News', 'Web', 'Blogs', 'Comprehensive', 'Video' and 'Groups'. We can define the frequency of the alert like 'once a day', 'once a week', 'as it happens' .
You can create up to 1000 alerts.
