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 http://www.iopus.com/iim/help/faq_search_keyword.htm for details

2. (Recommended) Use the IMAGESEARCH command, see http://www.iopus.com/iim/help/image_recognition.htm for details.

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