Add a Google alerts feed – click Create a Google Alerts Feed »
– Now, in a separate browser window, login to your Google Alerts
– Make sure that where it says “deliver to”, you change that to say “feed”
– Now, while pointing at/hovering over the orange RSS icon to the right of the words “Feed”, right-click, and select “copy link location” (note: don’t choose “copy image location” by mistake)
– Click back to the Sendible browser window, and “paste” that link into the Google Alerts feed field.  The link should look like this:  http://www.alerts/feeds/##########, where # represents a bunch of numbers.
