Let’s imagine you are monitoring a rumor on a blog. You take action and contact the post author/blogger to ask him with arguments to modify his post in order to avoid crisis communication. The blogger does agree and modifies his article. BUT the URL of the post does NOT change so that you don’t receive any alert via RSS.

How do you monitor any relevant change in copy of a webpage ?

There are quite a few desktop solutions to track these changes. BUT I’m looking for web based (ASP/SaaS) solutions. Up to now I’m testing ChangeDetection and WatchThatPage. The only problem with those 2 web solutions is that they alert you every time an element (widgets, tags,… not only copy content) of the monitored page changes.

If you know any of professional web based tool to track change in copy of a webpage ? Please tell me!
