Each update rewrites a previous update. For example, if the tool detected yesterday that
200 pages were added, then you removed 300 pages today and run the tool, the tool will display the last check results.
So, the information about 200 added pages will be replaced with 300 removed pages according to the last check.

- Select a tool (Watcher, Website Audit or Index checker).
- Add a wildcard to automatically import updated pages.*
- Set a maximum page count.**
*By default the tool uses '/' as a wildcard ('slash' goes for a root directory). It means that the tool will scan all pages to detect any added or deleted pages to add or delete them from a sitemap.
You may need to track only certain website parts. For example, a catalog or any other sections. To set the Tool to scan only the particular sections, add a wildcard of a particular website sections.
**A CMS failure may accidentally add, for example, 1000 extra pages to your sitemap. If you have an enabled auto-update feature, all new pages will be imported to your sitemap and the tool will run a scheduled update. The total cost will be based on the page count.
Please note. Set a maximum page count to prevent an accident money loss.
