Majority of the currently available webpages are dynamic in nature and are changing frequently. New content gets added to webpages and existing content gets updated or deleted. Hence, people find it useful to be alert for changes in webpages which contain information valuable to them. In the current context, keeping track of these webpages and getting alerts about different changes have become significantly challenging. Change Detection and Notification (CDN) systems were introduced to automate this monitoring process and notify users when changes occur in webpages. This survey classifies and analyzes different aspects of CDN systems and different techniques used for each aspect. Furthermore, the survey highlights current challenges and areas of improvement present within the field of research.
