VisualPing.io is a new web service that allows its users to monitor changes on web pages. It notifies about changes and sends an email alert when it detects any changes in the content of a weppage. Visual Ping works as a web app which is easy to setup. Best of all it is free to use!
Visual Ping is very simple to use. By entering a web address of a web page to monitor, it creates a screenshot of that page and allows the user to make a graphical selection of areas that should be monitored for changes.
When the web page’s content changes, Visual Ping takes a screenshot of the same page again and emails the before and after screenshots to the user’s email address. The monitoring intervals are generally set to one hour.
VisualPing.io appeared to be very reliable in our tests with popular websites also with frequently changing popular news websites. The screenshots were sharp and clear and the email alerts arrived on time.
