Web Page Monitoring – How It Works

Web Page Monitoring – How It Works

With the release of web page monitoring services, monitoring content of interest to users has never been easier.

To monitor web-enabled content for changes, all that is required is an e-mail account and a strong mindset for being the first to know about relevant changes to recently updated content.

Web page monitoring services are user-friendly with all services driven by custom user settings and subscriber preferences.

Overview: Web Page Monitoring

A vast array of content is available on the Internet.

With the assistance of top search engines like Yahoo or Google, most Web users have mastered content discovery.

On the other hand, keeping up to date with content updates is a challenge for most Internet users.

Sure there are “RSS feeds” and many web sites today offer proprietary update notification services, but not everyone wants to deal with complicated web technology such as RSS or yet another content change notification service that is specific to a particular website. Besides not every web site is deployed with an RSS feed. Furthermore most on-site content change notification services are controlled by the webmaster which means less choice for Internet users.

As such, most Internet surfers prefer a simple means to track the hidden web or sensitive content for most any web-enabled content. This is likely to be at odds with the goals of a webmaster who may not want Internet visitors to track updates to certain areas of the website he administers.

Therefore Internet users find value in centralizing web page monitoring and update notification with a single, simple third-party service.

There are two ways in which web page monitoring solutions are deployed.

  • Download software
  • Online web services

Of the two web page monitoring delivery approaches, online web page monitoring services are of higher value because there is nothing to download to your computer and new web page monitoring features can easily be added to the service.

With online web page monitoring, everything executes safely on the Web as a secure Internet service.
