: Google is trying to charge for its GoogleAlerts — up to $19.95 per month.
Only problem is, I’ve found that GoogleAlert sucks. I’ve subscribed for a long time and I consistently fine that it misses tons of stuff.
Technorati beats Google’s pants off.
But Google is overdependent on advertising and for its IPO it’s following Yahoo’s lead and trying to eke out consumer revenue where it can.
I won’t buy it.
See correction above.
