Google Alerts RSSOver two months ago, Google quietly dropped support for Google Alerts delivery via RSS/feed. It was believed that it was dropped because of the demise of Google Reader and that has not changed.

What has changed is that the RSS/Feed delivery option has returned, as TNW reports.

If you go to Google Alerts and select from the "Deliver to:" section "Feed" you will be given an RSS feed to populate and subscribe to in your new favorite RSS reader.

I am for one excited this feature is back and you should be also, since it helps me report new things to you guys.

And they had tried to kill off RSS by killing off Google Reader just to promote that stupid social network of theirs.

Google chooses what to promote and what not to in spite of users' feelings or thoughts
