Frequent Questions : Does ChangeDetect monitor all web pages within a website or operate as a domain spider?

 

 

Does ChangeDetect monitor all web pages within a website or operate as a domain spider?

No.  Each ChangeDetect monitor you create only monitors one web page at a time. ChangeDetect is not a domain spider and will not search a web site for additional web pages. If you would like to monitor multiple webpages within a website, then create multiple ChangeDetect monitors.

Keep in mind that it is OK to monitor the home page for a web site, if the homepage contains the content you want to monitor.  But do not enter the home page of a website and expect ChangeDetect to monitor the pages buried underneath in different files or subdirectories.  

To correctly set up a monitor, you must click through the web site until you find the web page of interest. With ChangeDetect you must enter the address of the actual page of interest (i.e. product announcements, price lists, employment opportunities, news releases, etc).
