Improved Content Monitoring!

Two new features in TWO DAYS.. what is this new year NEW ME?

When we launched custom content extraction in 2017, I was always a bit annoyed by the ‘pain in the arse’ it was to use, sure it was an excellent feature but we made the user load up a tab and copy the xPath manually.

Since that launch we’ve had ‘make content extraction less shi of a pain to do’ but as things tend to do, other features and improvements got in the way.

BUT NOT TODAY… BOOM!

That’s right you can use our Interactive wizard to monitor as many elements on the page as you’d like and get change monitoring on each of those.

But DOM I hear you say, getting an email EVERYTIME that changes is going to flood my inbox with a lot of useless notifications.

Well random blog reader you are correct and that is why on each content extraction you can use our advanced options to only get notified if for instance a certain word or number isn’t present.

We’ve still got a lot more coming to Little Warden and some quality of life improvements that we are looking forward to sharing (but don’t be expecting a new feature every day!)

Core Web Vitals Monitoring

Today we are launching the ability to monitor your Core Web Vitals on both mobile AND desktop with Little Warden!

Screenshot from https://web.dev

What are Core Web Vitals?
Well they are some of the elements that Google is pushing to for people to keep and eye on to make the web faster (there is also a bit of chat about this becoming a ranking factor)

No, I mean what the hell does Largest Content Paint mean?
Yeah, those names are a bit.. wow but at it’s basic core LCP means enough of the page content has loaded that the page can be deemed ‘useful’

What am I notified on?
At the moment in this initial launch, you will be notified if a URL crosses one of the pre detemined boundries listed above, once we’ve launched and the dust has settled you’ll be able to get notified on things like % change as well.

When can I use it?
How quickly can you login to Little Warden?

I don’t have a Little Warden Account
Then this seems like the perfect time to signup for a trial!

We should have another announcement or two by the end of the week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Thanks

Dom
