As far as I can tell, Google Alerts, has dropped its RSS feed option from the standing searches I used to be able to create. Now they just allow e-mail updates. The good news is that it now seems to be including Google News in its search which it didn’t before. More good news is that you can create more than five alerts.
So how am I still going to collect my alerts into my Bloglines account? Simple…I just changed the e-mail on my Google Alert account to one of the Bloglines throwaway e-mails that they provide. So, the e-mail messages with the news headlines from Google Alerts end up in my aggregator anyway.
On par, the addition of Google News to the service makes this a win, even if you have to hack your way into aggregating the results.
