Track Google Alerts on your dashboard

Google Alerts lets you monitor the web for interesting new content

By creating a Google Alert, you can get notifications any time Google finds new results on a topic that interests you. For example, you could get updates about a product you like, find out when people post something about you on the web, or keep up with news stories.

You can track your Google Alerts on your Geckoboard dashboard.

Step 1: Create your Google Alert with the required configuration and set it to 'Deliver to' RSS Feed. 

For tips on creating your alerts, please refer Google's guide here.

 

Step 2: Once the Alert is created, get it's RSS feed URL using the icon shown in the screenshot.

 

Step 3: Pop that URL under our RSS/Atom Feed widget.

 


With that you should be able to track your Google Alerts on your dashboard. This is how the widget will look.
