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.”
