Is there a way to get notified if a new question is posted in one of my Favorite tag other than me clicking on the tag or browsing through new questions all the times?

I have a favorite tag (Bloomberg) with low monthly number of questions in it (around 30-40).

And since I can be of great help in that area to other people, I would like to see if there a notification system in place (such as email).

  • With all due respect , even though the answer to the above question is similar to the answer to my question. The questions themselves are quite different – Joe Tatavaran Jul 10 '13 at 13:27
  • This is not a dupe. Voting to reopen. (guess I missed something two years back) – Shadow Aug 17 '15 at 6:09

Mouse over the tag, and in the popup click on 'subscribe' or 'rss':

Subscribing means you'll get emailed for new questions (you'll be sent a confirmation email first); the RSS link should take you to your RSS reader.

Email subscriptions can be managed on your Stack Exchange profile (click on your name in the top bar); there is a 'subscriptions' tab there, tag subscriptions are grouped under the 'Filters' header:

  • OK. and what happens after that? I'm not used RSS before. What I need to use it? – Joe Tatavaran Jul 10 '13 at 13:05
  • @JoeTatavaran: You install a RSS reader, or a RSS extension for your browser. If you just want email, use the subscribe link instead. – Martijn Pieters Jul 10 '13 at 13:06
  • See Wikipedia for a general overview and options. – Martijn Pieters Jul 10 '13 at 13:07

    @Joe after you subscribe you can change the settings through your network profile, you will see "subscription" tab there. – Shadow Jul 10 '13 at 13:07
