Google Alerts

Has anyone ever tried using Google Alert feeds as a way of keeping up with literature in a very specific subfield? On of the areas I'm currently investigating has some active research in journals I don't always think to check, so I'm wondering if this is a reasonable way to find papers faster.

Either way, I'm going to set up a few alerts on my favorite queries, and see how it goes. I do wish I could restrict Alerts to Google Scholar, rather than a full web search.
