Keyword or text validation allows you to specify keywords to be verified on a page each time the page is loaded. Keywords are available in several different kinds of monitoring tasks including some ServerView, BrowserView and UserView tasks.
Keyword validation allows you to specify one keyword phrase per line. A keyword phrase consists of one or more words in exactly the same format as they appear on the page. You cannot include multiple keywords from different locations on a website in one keyword phrase.
Keyword validation is often used to show that not only is the server responding to a request but that it is serving up the proper data.
