Google Alerts: Still Broken

Danny Sullivan at Search Engine Land writes that Google Alerts is still not working properly, despite Google assuring him they're working on it. At, Omar Ha-Redeye has noticed the same, and wonders if Alerts is next on the chopping block, after Google announced they were pulling the plug on Reader earlier this month.

Alerts and Reader are two products that virtually every library person I know uses. It'll be interesting to see what people come up with to replace them. As Sullivan suggests, maybe this is an opportunity for Bing to step in?
