Copy cell, if content matches certain keywords in Google Sheets

I need to copy the value of a cell if the contents contain a keyword from a list in a Sheet I have.

You can see an example and make a copy here

So if the news story listed in "RSS News Feed" matches a keyword in "Alert Keywords", we copy the name of that news story to the Sheet "We have a match"

I did find a similar scenario that used the function below that would need editing, but as we are looking for keywords within text. Think we perhaps need an alternative function

The possibly function formats

= ArrayFormula(if(len(B2:B),iferror(vlookup(B2:B,'Price List'!A2:B,2,false),"Not found"),))
