I am trying to search for updates on a specific website that does not have a search function. Is there a third-party tool or scanner that can do this for me on a regular basis and then alert me to my phone or email?

Hi

Not sure what level of detail you need but let's assume you have a favourite page that promotes something only randomly and unannounced and you want to make sure you don't miss the promotion, you can use:

https://www.followthatpage.com/

Simple, sends you notifications whenever the site changes.
