  • Patent number: 9880983
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for the collection of content, such as webpage content, and for detection of changes in content. Files composing a document at a different time periods may be accessed and sets of hash values corresponding to files composing the document at the different periods may be calculated. A determination is made as to whether a file in the identified files at the different time periods is an HTML file, and if so an additional hash value corresponding to the HTML file is calculated. Aggregated hash values may be calculated based on hash values in the sets of hash values. A report may be generated reporting hash values for the document as it exists at the different time periods, including the hash values for the files composing the document, the additional hash values for respective HTML files, and the aggregated hash values. Changes in hash values may be indicated.
