Google adds email alerts option to Google Trends

Google Trends is a pretty fair indicator of topical winds across the Web. It helps us understand the hot searches and also allows us to look into the past and see historical trends. Google recently made it a little bit more convenient to stay in the know with email notifications for Google Trends.
