Monitoring specific keywords
Instead of (or in addition to) selecting a HTTP status code as your monitor rule, you can also observe if a website or service contains or does not contain a specific keyword.
Say, you have a web page that returns information on a specific product and you want to monitor that the phrase "is available in stock" is present. You could set up your rule as follows:
The monitor would appear as Down once the phrase is not present on the page anymore.
Identifying keywords on a web page
When monitoring the presence or absence of one or more words on a page or for an API result, make sure that you are checking the string as it appears in the raw HTML/text document and not as it is rendered by your browser.
If you have trouble locating a string on a web page you want to check, use the
View Source option or the Network tab of your browser's
Inspect function. As a last resort, always feel free to contact support.
