Anyone know a way to instantly receive updates from a site? ie: when it's published, I'm notified?

    have you tried setting up a google alert?

    Yeah, but they're not instant so far. I need it to be within at least a few minutes -- if not, as soon as they hit the publish button. Any more than that and the comment is 20 to 30 deep and gets a trickle.

      You could run a script that checks the site every minute or five or whatever, looks for changes, and sends email appropriately. It would have to be aware of "unimportant" changes, for dynamic things such as the number of comments for each post, certain timestamps, local weather info... anything that "doesn't matter" to you.

      Ah, yes, some themes are extra wide, and don't permit sufficient downloading by the client for parallel processing during the plugin option setting updates, so make certain to factor this in with the schematic partitioning!! Don't you think? Otherwise, you might gain a full comprehension of the OP's original query, dear Friend!

    If he doesn't run his RSS feed through an aggregator, you can hit the feed every five minutes and check the first title. If it has changed from the last hit, you have a new post.

    Google Alerts my friend...as someone already mentioned of course. But I give my +1 to it.

    I remember years ago I had some sort of program installed that played a "ding dong" sound each time someone landed on my site. That way I would be notified and would proceed to present a live chat window to be able to close that person in real time. It worked pretty darn good, even too good lol. That constant doorbell sound started to drive me crazy so I disabled it (with sales taking a bit of a hit)

    I'm thinking Google Alerts, RSS, or a desktop notification software where you receive "pop ups" on your desktop when something new happens on a particular site (you have to be connected to the internet though).
