Tracking Internet content with OnWebChange

There are three distinct ways to track changes to Internet content with OnWebChange

1. Tracking specific parts of web pages

With OnWebChange you can track specific parts of any public web page by using 'CSS Selectors', for example just the price of a shop product, or job listing for a particular company website, version numbers of software... or anything you want. You can even track multiple parts of the same web page.

This is arguably the most powerful and most unique feature of OnWebChange.

2. Changes to online files

OnWebChange also allows you to track changes to online files such as PDF documents, images, videos - or any type of file you wish.

This is very useful to track content that would otherwise be impossible, for example OnWebChange could track changes to data graphs and charts, maps, diagrams, terms and conditions PDF files...

3. Changes to files as plain text

With OnWebChange, you can also track web pages as 'plain text'. Although you will not be able to track individual part of the page, you can track changes to things like the html markup and embedded scripts. However, this technique is mainly useful for tracking non-html, but plain text files, such as text, CSV, JSON and xml files.

When tracking content as plain text you can also employ the Rules engine to notify only when the content contains certain words or phrases.
