Fair use rationale for Image:Googlealerts.gif
Image:Googlealerts.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Would someone (with more Wikipedia experience than myself) please review this article and either remove the stub classification or explain what is required to get it removed? Thanx
Instructions for usage
Can someone put on the page how to actually use the page? I understand how to use the different fields, but I don't know what I need to put into the "Search query" field to get a desired result. Thanks. Allen (Morriswa) (talk) 16:51, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
Difference between Google Alerts and ordinary Google search
It would be very helpful if this article could explain the differences between the results that are found with Google Alerts and the ordinary Google search. Especially when a Google Alert is in place for years and no results are found, but entering the exact same search as an ordinary Google search will find multiple recent occurrences. Is there an algorithm that determines which Alerts will be ignored and if so how does it work? Perhaps this behavior is a bug and Google Alerts has been abandoned by Google and is no longer supported? Google Alerts does not appear on the list of Google products: https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/products/ Lloyd Ewing (talk) 21:33, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
