Google Quietly Brings Back RSS Feed Option To Google Alerts
In early July, Google quietly dropped RSS delivery as an option for Google Alerts. I lost tons of the alerts I’ve set up, however, they still seemed to work with Feedly, when I transitioned from Google Reader after Google Reader closed.
Here is a picture of the need “Feed” option within Google Alerts:
As you can see, you have the option within “deliver to” to deliver the alert to a feed.
I am grateful that this option is back, just sad I lost most of what I had set up previously. I wonder if Google can restore the old alerts?
