Search Alerts

This question is answered

I am a Microsoft focused technologist and do quite a lot of reseach on Microsoft products. I find it ironic that I use Google Alerts to notify me real time when that search engine discovers that that mention the search keywords I set which are related to Microsoft

I would like to see Bing implement a similar service which can do better than Google by using Windows Live Alerts amongst other ways of notifying me.

  • I did not realize Microsoft had an alert for a topic. Most of my friends and i use Google Alerts to get breaking news etc.

    It is a shame that they do not have a tab on Bing allowing Bing alerts. It would drive more users to bing over time!

  • Google Alerts are the best in all

  • I like google alerts too. If BING or MSN can provide a better or similar service then it would be more than welcome.

    Hi friend not to be shame but like Brett Yount already told - " I'll add this to our feedback mechanism", so wait and watch as Bing is new so it will take time.

     

  • WIth more and more sites being added on everyday and people having lesser time to search and browse many websites, Google alerts is a convenient tool that saves a lot of time. Bing must have a feature which is similar if not better. Bing can make it better by customizing the alert as per domain or geography. Maybe a new feature could be an alert for picture tags or video tags which some people like who would like to view pictures or videos of events....

    Thanks, Please visit www.commonwealthgamessports .com for the latest news on CWG 2010.

  • I'm a Bing loyalist and would also like to see Bing alert kick off. I know many people are looking forward to seeing this feature, which will draw in more followers.

  • if bing can integrate the alerts that will rock.

  • on Bong you can set a news alert, just not a web search alert.

    still waiting. :-)

  • would also like to see this. please let me know if it is added.

  • This is undoubtedly a fabolous suggestion. Most of us were ignorant of this fact that Bing does not have a service like that of Google alert. I think Bing should come up with something that is something more unique and innovative than of Google alert.

  • Would like to see bing search alerts.

  • Google alerts is a convenient tool that saves a lot of time. Bing must have a feature which is similar if not better. As Brett said they will be adding a feature soon ....so lets wait and watch
