Google Adds RSS Feeds For Web Search Results
As expected, Google has added an RSS feed for web search results to the Google Alerts service. As seen in the screenshot above, when creating a new alert, you can now choose to get the alert via email or RSS feed. RSS feed alerts are only available to logged-in Google account holders.
As we reported earlier this month, Google is the last major search engine to offer its web search results via RSS.
This is a good addition, but I have to agree with Google Operating System today: “The new feature from Google Alerts is useful, but Google should’ve provided an option to subscribe to feeds for each search result.”
