You can use keyword matching to filter the changes that are relevant to you.
Changes not meeting your keyword match criteria are not included in your email or
your personal web page containing the changes.
Keyword matching is very useful when you are looking for
If you are only looking for news where a certain name occurs, i.e. your
company name, you can enable keyword matching.
Using keyword matching you also have an option for what to match; the whole
page or every individual paragraph. (A paragraph is everything that is collected
between two blank lines in your changes. Have a look at the bottom of this help
page for examples).
If you choose the whole page, WatchThatPage will try to match your criteria for
all the changes on the pages you are tracking. If a match is found, all changes
for the page are sent to you.
If you choose each paragraph, all the changes for each page will be divided into
separate paragraphs, and matching will be done for each paragraph separately.
Only the paragraphs that match your criteria will be sent to you.
Add keyword matching to your profile or your channel
by clicking the 'Add keyword matching' button. This will reveal the options
you can set for the keyword matching. In addition to the option of matching the whole
page vs. individual paragraphs, as described above, there are 4 text input fields:
'With all the words', 'With the exact phrase', 'With some of the words', and
'Without the words'.
The rules for matching are pretty simple. If 'With the exact phrase' matches, there is a match,
even if the 'Without the words' match in any way. If any of the words in 'Without the words'
is contained in the changes, there is no match. Otherwise we will match the 'With all the words' and
the 'With some of the words' which should be straightforward to understand.
If there are no words in any of the 4 input fields, keyword matching is considered off.
The matching words must match exactly, meaning the matching algorithm is not
clever enough to sort out word endings like 'all the computers'. Here
the search term 'computer' will not match. We will look into ways to do this
more properly in the future, but you just have to live with this for now.
Removing keyword matching is very simple. Just click the 'remove keyword matching' button
in your profile or properties (if you are having multiple channels). WatchThatPage will
remember your settings, so if you enable keyword matching again, your previous settings
will be restored.
What is a paragraph?
A paragraph is all text that is collected between two blank lines in your changes. In the following
example there are two paragraphs (in addition to the header)
