There’s been a lot of chatter over the interwebs in the last few weeks about Google Alerts being buggy, erratic or just plain broken google alertand the rumors are swirling that Alerts might be going the way of Google Reader. Before you cry tears of sorrow, we’ve found a fast and capable replacement touted to be even better than Google Alerts – Meet Talkwalker.
