We released a feature that builds upon Custom Element Extraction and Monitoring: Alerts for Custom Elements !

This one's a game changer!

Monitoring and change tracking of your on-page SEO elements is great, but… what if you could add other elements for ContentKing to track? Starting today, you're the one setting the rules using XPath, CSS selectors or regular expressions!

Are you doing a content audit and need to figure out:

  • who wrote which articles?
  • how many articles have been published in the past month?
  • which articles haven't been touched lately and need an update?

Or are you in charge of an e-commerce website and want to know:

  • what products are out of stock?
  • which categories don't list any products?
  • what products have the highest review score?

Say no more! Now you can add elements like these and many others to your monitoring settings and ContentKing will take care of the rest.
