As all of us were expecting, Google has finally launched RSS feeds as one of the options to Google Alerts. It was discovered by the Google Operating System recently.

“Google Alerts has a new option: you can now subscribe to feeds instead of receiving periodic email messages. Google Alerts notifies you if there are new pages in the list of top results for a certain query. You can subscribe to alerts for web search, Google News, blog search, Google Groups and Google Video.”

The new feature from Google Alerts is useful, but Google should've provided an option to subscribe to feeds for each search result. Right now, the feeds from Google Alerts have cryptic addresses like:

(http://www.google.com/alerts/feeds/LONG_NUMBER/ANOTHER_LONG_NUMBER) and you can only generate feeds from Google Alerts. – Google Operating System

You just need to login and then click on “manage your Google Alerts.”

After clicking on this option, you can set up your new alerts and even modify the already existing ones.
