Google Alerts allows you to setup an RSS feed for the alert delivery. That'll probably be your best bet to get the data in a structured form.

I like the idea of using hash sums to check for changes in files. I don't like that the one you link to is installed on the server itself. If the server is hacked, that file is likely to be modified too. I would use a command like this to ssh into each remote server and checksum all the important files in the web directory. ssh mywebsite.example.com '...

A few simple options to automate malware scanning of multiple sites: Use a paid automated malware scanning service such as Securi, 6Scan or SiteLock. You might want to encourage your client to sign up with these services, or offer it as part of a monthly maintenance contract. Use a free plugin for your content management system, such as Wordfence for ...

One of our sites was recently hacked and we didn't notice for a while, because nothing was broken, until we became aware of our site appearing with spammy words in Google searches. Since our site was using git, I came up with a quick and dirty solution for monitoring the site for unauthorised file changes using the git diff command. It is a bash script (but ...

One thing that I have done is implemented logging of client side JavaScript errors to the server. See: Logging Clientside JavaScript Errors on Server This involves: Putting in a JavaScript function to catch all error events Firing off an AJAX call to the server in that function Creating a server side script to capture that output and log it Creating a ...

I know two good German tools: OnPage.org and strucr.com Both crawl your website regulary and show reports. OnPage.org is probably better for smaller sites, but have nicer reports. Strucr is good for big websites with many pages, but the reports are a IMHO bit more complicated. Monitoring your SEO keywords in the SERPs only will show changes too late as ...

Two tools that run on windows might work for you md5deep and AFICK - another file integrity checker. The allow the auditing and also become aware of new files. AFAICK there is now web interface for them but you might want to send you the report via E-Mail right from the moment the tools flag a warning anyway.

I would recommend installing PhantomJS and using rasterize.js to take screenshots of web pages. Example: phantomjs rasterize.js https://www.google.com/ screenshot.png This is an especially attractive solution for developers who are developing with server-side JavaScript. You can view the source code for rasterize.js here: https://github.com/ariya/...

A 301 redirect should not normally cause pingdom any problems. If it encounters a redirect this should just appear as an additional step in its report. #maybe this is causing issues to pingdom.com RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mydomain.com$ RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/www\.mydomain\.com\/" [R=301,L] However, it looks like there is a problem with your redirect. ...

I'm really far from an expert on anything SQL / database related, but I think New Relics analytics may have something that can monitor this.

I would highly recommend investing time into PhantomJS or CasperJS. They are browser simulations that interact with HTTP and DOM level JS. We use it at Top Hat to test our app and it's a very heavy JS client. PhantomJS isn't for the feint of heart as getting it to work exactly like you want it to can be challenging however, it's worth the time. Good luck,...
