Live Search Launches News Alerts Service

Microsoft's Live Search has launched a news alerts service. This service will let users know when a keyword they choose appears on a news website. This is similar to Google alerts.

Here's the process for setting up a Live Search alert:

  1. Go to news.live.com.
  2. Sign in with your Live ID (or get one if you haven't already).
  3. From any page within news search (like the default page for top stories or the results page associated with a search), click the News alerts link (in the right column).
  4. Click Create alert.

News alerts are a great tool for keywords or topics that you're perpetually searching. Let the results come to you.
