Uptime Robot Gets Keyword Checking & RSS Alerts
But before that, thanks very much to everyone who supports the service by using it, sending us suggestions, tweeting, etc.
Uptime Robot has added 2 new features today:
- keyword checking
- uptime alerts via RSS
which will enable you to monitor your websites in a more flexible way.
Now you can set Uptime Robot to check if your website contains (or doesn't contain) a keyword you define.
It is possible to find many creative uses of this feature like:
- finding out if there is a database connection problem (set the keyword that your website displays when a db problem occurs)
- detect if a module of your website word or not by setting a keyword from that module (like the calendar in a webpage)
- & much more..
Well, RSS alerts is nothing creative. The service instantly updates your special feed when there is an alert.
But, it is now possible build desktop notifiers & more using these feed URLs.
P.S. Announcing every new feature from WRD is definitely not the plan. However, it can be a good idea to share milestones considering most WRD readers are already users of Uptime Robot.
