The way I set this up I will receive one email a day with all the new results for the full search term “free crochet patterns”.
You can narrow down the search if you prefer.  The options included are:
Result Type: everything, news, blogs, videos, discussion, books
How Often: daily, weekly or as-it-happens
How Many:  only the best results or all results
You can also set up an alert to notify you whenever your blog is linked!

To do this type [link:yourblog.com] and replace yourblog.com with your actual blog url and don’t use the brackets.
