    Staying Up-to-date on News

    What is the best way to keep up with news in a niche? I normally get my news from certain websites/blogs but I am starting my own website and would like to get the news when the other sites do. That way I don't fall behind and lose visitors because I am always late on posting. Specifically I am looking for news on new Internet startups as well as news on established Internet companies. For example, TechCrunch just reported this story. Where did they first hear about that?

    What is the best way to stay on top of this news?

    Thanks.

    Probably you should subscribe to a number of different RSS feeds and watch them like a hawk.

    agreed. You need to stay on the ball. Sometimes you will miss a story but if you can catch a hot topic early it can give you a good boost of traffic.
