December 13, 2005 - TheWebWatcher (http://www.thewebwatcher.com), an internet content monitoring and alerting service has announced its new feature - monitoring of RSS/RDF feeds. The new feature gives the opportunity of its customers to monitor RSS/RDF feeds for changes and keyword related content.
Rich Site Summary or RDF (Resource Description Framework) Site Summary is an XML format for sharing content among different web sites such as news items. The idea is simple - a web site can allow other sites to publish some of its content by creating an RSS document and registers the document with an RSS publisher.
Now, TheWebWatcher can monitor these RSS feeds for you.
The service can send you all new items from the monitored RSS feed or only the items that contain predefined keywords.
"Being in the business for more than a year, we have understood that the RSS feeds contain the essential of the information needed by our users, and now we want to give them the opportunity to explore the golden vein of the information.", concludes the product manager Matthew Berger.
The Web Watcher is a content monitoring service that periodically watches web pages, web sites and other Internet resources for keyword related content or changes. Supported are HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and FTPS protocols.
This service analyzes the content of web pages and RSS feeds and sends alerts if there are any differences. The wide range of options allows users to configure their watch-filters in an appropriate way to track only desired information. A detailed reporting system keeps information from every check and gives real-time picture of every change on the monitored resource. The service is free of charge and can be used without installing any software.
