Here are some alert and monitoring tools that -- alone or in
combination -- should fully meet your needs.
The first is Google Alerts at:
You can use this feature to create a search of the web, or of news
sources, or both...you can also search discussion groups if that is of
Once a search is created and run, the alert will send you an email
notification ONLY when there is new material relevant to your search.
In this way, you won't be bothered with seeing the same old
information you already have...only new search results will result in
an email notification.
A similar alert service -- one that uses Google, but is not affiliated
with Google -- is here:
in case you want to give that a try as well.
The other tool is
Monitor pages, extract new information
and I can't describe them any better than they describe themselves:
...WatchThatPage is a service that enables you to automatically
collect new information from your favorite pages on the Internet. You
select which pages to monitor, and WatchThatPage will find which pages
have changed, and collect all the new content for you. The new
information is presented to you in an email and/or a personal web
page. You can specify when the changes will be collected, so they are
fresh when you want to read them. The service is free!
Between the Google Alert tools and the web monitoring tools, you'll be
able to automatically keep up to date whenever there are new search
results on topics of interest to you, as well as changes to any web
pages that you specify.
I believe these tools should fully meet your needs. However, if
there's anything else I can do for you, please let me know by posting
a Request for Clarification, and I'll be happy to assist you further.
