Google Alerts have now a new option in Type which says “Updates” and its pretty fast as it picks up data from Google’s Real Time search index. You can use this now get update faster from Twitter and Facebook without even going and making a search there.
As soon as I did an alert change for this blog, There was an alert sent to me in a minute, our recent post updated on Facebook.
The only drawback is your Inbox will now have even more email if it is sent out as it happens.!!
