We have about 100 daily alerts set up. The numbers coming through dropped on the 18th of March and never really recovered.
I guess, like organic SERPS, the free non-ad-covered alerts are not profit earning and therefore un-important anymore.
They got us in with all the free tools and features ... now we're at their mercy as there is no competition. They were allowed to buy them all up. You can't even get a good analytics service these days. My Urchin is pretty poor, but at least it's not Google ... kind of ... ;)
