Generally, there are some services offered by Google which is not very much known to the general public. One such service is called as Google Alert.
This service from the search engine giant keeps us up to date on everything, be it any political news or technological news or the news of any field you want to know. Moreover, you can also set alert for a specific keyword phrase, as well.
The service sends emails to the user when it finds new results—such as web pages, newspaper articles, blogs, or scientific research. Today, we have compiled steps to create Google Alert for yourself.

Step 5: Click Show options to say how often you get alerts, and more.
