IPL Just started and everyone is trying to keep themselves updated about the happenings of it. But for working people it becomes tough to keep track of it. There are paid services from where you can get information about IPL on your mobile but that too limited. So how to use the amazing powers of google to explore IPL like everyone else? Just follow few simple steps and you are ready to get all IPL informations–
1. Open http://www.google.co.in/alerts , you will get the google alerts home page.
2. Now type “ipl” in “Search query” box and on your right side you gets Google Alert for today.
3. Now click on Result type: here you get many options like Everything, News, Blogs, Video, Discussions, Books. You can select any one of them and you get filtered information on IPL direct to your mail box and phone.
4. Google is just Google Why? Because it gives users so many options like this one, How often: Here you get a chance to select how often you want these information’s so you have options to choose from As it happens, Once a day & Once a week.
5. As google finds many informations about IPL it gives you option to choose ‘ only the best results’ in “How many” option, it helps you get the best info in right time.
6. Now we come to Delivery place that is your email id or your feed and both can be connected to send sms to your mobile ( this you know gradually in this topic).
