Unitarian Universalism on Google News.

Google introduced a cool new feature earlier this month: a customizable Google News page that allows you to track stories about keywords of your choice along with top stories in Google's other major news categories. I've set up mine to include news stories about Unitarian Universalists just below the top stories of the day. (You can also search recent news stories from 4,000 or so news sources for articles about Unitarian Universalists; I've set up this search string to find anything related to Unitarians or Universalists, minus all the calendar and support group listings.)

OOOh, I should try that with Quakers and Religious Society of Friends on my Google news. Good idea!

That is exactly how I search for news for my blog. I love Google.

Is this similar to Google Alerts? Which can be daily or weekly. I receive daily alerts on Unitarian Universalism, Annapolis General Assembly, my sister's hometown, competitive outsourcing, New Zealand (my son's home base).

I'm now using Google desktop search which works great unless you reorganize your files and folders.

It's similar to Google Alerts, you create a custom section on Google News to show news related to the topic you choose.

I just love Alerts, it's a great source of up-to-date information, although the increase in subscription access is damaging availability quite a bit. Many of the quotes that I send to mailing lists and now to blog forums come from Alerts.
