There are two methods to detect or monitor a specific keyword on a web page:

1. Look for a keyword using the EXTRACT command, see for details

2. (Recommended) Use the IMAGESEARCH command, see for details.

Method #2 works with EVERY web page, even with images and inside of Java- or Flash applets.
