How to Monitor Any Web Page with AI?

The Need for Automatic Web Data

Businesses and individuals need continuous access to web data in order to stay on top of relevant information and make smart decisions.

Competitive intelligence teams may want to track competitor price changes, and investment professionals need to monitor market updates and economic indicators to make informed investing decisions. Or maybe you just want an in stock alert when the latest Nike release drops. The list goes on.

But knowing when these changes happen, or extracting data from various sites, can be time-consuming. Manually checking websites for changes is tedious, and requires more effort and resources. RSS feeds are not readily available on the relevant websites you want to track updates on, and building your own web scrapers requires more effort, time and technical expertise.

So use AI instead.

Visualping is one of the top AI website monitoring tools that make it easy to be notified when an update occurs on any website you care about. Available online, it uses AI to monitor, analyse and notify you of changes on the web.

You don’t have to check for changes yourself, and it’s entirely code-free.

And, with the Google Sheets integration, it’s also one of the best web scraper tools that can extract data into your spreadsheets. Crawl any web pages on demand, schedule and crawl jobs in bulk, and even customise your scraping advanced features – like crawling a web source for certain keywords of interest.

Monitor Web Page Changes with AI

Like other website change monitoring tools, Visualping automatically tracks any websites on the internet for the changes you care about. But, unlike many of its counterparts, it leverages AI to make web monitoring easier and faster.

So You Can Read the Summary, and Skip the Details

Visualping monitors, analyses and notifies you when a web change has occurred. On the free and paying plans, it offers several AI functionalities that make it easier for you to stay on top of the web data you need. Unlike similar web monitoring tools, it doesn’t just notify you when there’s a change.

With the AI-powered Summarizer feature, the email alert includes an AI-generated summary of the update, distilled into 2 to 3 lines. The summaries are a concise and human-like explanation of what happened, making it easier for you to understand the update faster.

Common among other website monitoring tools, the email also includes a screenshot of the page change, with the changes highlighted, so you can review the update visually, as well.

So You Can Understand the Impact, Not the Change

With another one of Visualping’s AI features, Analyzer, you can upgrade your summaries so that they’re tailored to your monitoring objective. Make your own custom prompts, so Visualping will summarise and interpret web updates according to your specific needs.

STEP 1: Enter the URL you want to monitor
STEP 2: Enter your email address

So You Can Stay in the Know More Easily Than Ever

The methodology is simple. You’re not required to first register an account, or hit with a sales pitch. On the Visualping homepage, just enter the URL of the page you want to monitor.

It’ll load over a couple seconds, in which case you can select the area of the page that’s relevant, the type of web data you want to monitor (text, visual, HTML, etc), and the frequency.

Once you enter the email address you want to be notified with and hit “Start monitoring”, your first job is set up, and you’re also a registered user (once you confirm your account with the email we’ll send you). Two steps in one!

Premium business plans let you monitor any number of web pages, you can integrate change alerts in Slack and Microsoft Teams, get real-time alerts and manage alerts in your own team workspace.

So You Can Get More Intelligence, Less Noise

It offers several different monitoring modes for notifying you of visual, text, content and HTML changes. Whether the change affects how the page looks, or it’s an update to the visible content, or it’s hidden in the source code, Visualping will detect it.

With Learner™, in one click, users can now teach the AI when a change is irrelevant. Visualping then leverages this user feedback to automatically block similar change alerts in the future – for that specific user’s job, and also similar jobs, from other users.

This allows Visualping to automatically enhance the relevancy of change alerts over time, so that users only get the best, most relevant change notifications. Visualping AI learns from you, for automatic optimization.

For example, Visualping now automatically blocks ads and cookie pop-ups, so you’re not notified of irrelevant changes and you’re not blocked from accessing the web content you want.

With the keyword alerts feature, you can get notified when a specific keyword, number or phrase gets added or removed from the page. That way, you only get alerted of updates relevant to your use case.

How to Monitor Any Web Page with AI

In this step-by-step tutorial, we will walk you through how to set up monitoring a page with AI.

Step 1: Go to the homepage, and copy and paste the URL of the page you want to monitor into the search field.

That’s on Visualping’s homepage. You don’t need to first sign up. Click Go.

Step 2: Once the page appears in the viewport, select the part of the page you want monitored.

You don’t have to monitor the entire page for changes. Select the area that matters, so you only get notified of relevant updates.

Step 3: Specify the frequency you want Visualping to check the page.

That could be every 5 minutes, 30 minutes, hourly, daily, etc., depending on your subscription plan.

Step 4: Type the email address you want the alerts to be sent to.

Then click Start Monitoring, and that’s it!

Step 5: Visualping will send you an email, asking you to make a password for your account.

Don’t forget to do this. The password completes your account, and allows you to login to your user-dashboard, where you can view all your Visualping monitors and email alerts in one location.

Happy AI monitoring!
