VisualPing – not every website has a RSS feed, which can be a bit frustrating if you want to keep up with new content, and there’s no way to sign up for instant updates. VisualPing is the solution to this problem. Simply type in the URL of the website, your email address, the checking frequency, and how much of a change there should be before you are notified.

    The RSS feed tool is awesome, does it also send out feeds for search results?

      I wouldn't say that VisualPing is a RSS tool. It's designed for pages that don't have a built-in RSS feed. And it is purely email-based.

      It is designed to detect changes on a webpage. If you want new search results as they happen, I would suggest using Google Alerts.

      Wait.....a VPN can only be accessed by using a VPN? That's ironic.
