FeedM8 announces an innovative service that monitors websites and sends FULL updates via text messages to mobile phones.

FeedM8, the global leading provider in mobilization and monetization service, today launches Web-Alerts.com, an innovative free service that monitors the web and sends FULL updates via text messaging.

"Web-Alerts is the ideal mobile service," says Allen Lau, President and Co-founder of FeedM8. "It lets you stay fully connected with news that matters to you, even when you're away from a computer, which is vital in an increasingly mobile world."

To use Web-Alerts, visit Web-Alerts.com and enter the address of any website or RSS feed. Web-Alerts will automatically monitor the website and alert the user via text message when something new appears, optionally checking for specific keywords. The text message also contains a link to the mobile optimized version of the full story.

Web-Alerts.com comes in handy when tracking high frequency feeds like Del.icio.us, Digg or Craigslist, which can have hundreds of updates each day. It is also ideal for staying up to date with popular blogs such as BoingBoing or TechCrunch. Add the latest events or job search results and be alerted even while away from the computer.

Other practical uses for Web-Alerts.com include:

  • monitoring a developing news story
  • staying current on a competitor or industry
  • getting the latest on a celebrity or event
  • keeping tabs on your favorite sports team

Web-Alert.com utilizes FeedM8's patent pending technology that creates a phone model specific version of any RSS-enabled website in real time for display. The transformation takes into account handset specific capabilities and dramatically reduces mobile network bandwidth required to support rich Internet traffic. This delivers optimal speed, presentation, usability and content quality across mass-market handsets such as Motorola RAZR, business oriented handsets such as the Blackberries, and high-tier handsets such as Apple iPhone. FeedM8 also provides mobile appropriate advertisements, shares advertising revenue with the publishers and provides full analytics and in-depth reporting.

To use Web-Alert, simply visit http://www.web-alerts.com. Web-Alert is currently available to subscribers of all major mobile operators in US and Canada.
