Search Result Alerts

Could we get alerts to new results for a particular search/keyword?
Speaking from experience within the current forums, tags don’t necessarily cover all needs for alerts, so auch a feature would be very much preferable over having to repeatedly making the same search every day.

Isn’t that what tracking / watching does under Preferences? I subscribed to all sorts of tags (for now) and I get emails.

Yes, that works for tags, but that assumes that everything is tagged by its contents, which it won’t be. Easiest example is that someone other than the original poster will eventually steer the discussion into a direction that would have benefitted from a different tag for visibility, but they themselves can’t add it.

So having free-form keywords/searches that trigger alerts on mentioning fill a different gap.
