Automated checking of websites is is a classic use of lynx.
Depending on the level of detail required you can confirm everything from
certificates to content integrity to simple availability. I usually have the
checking system email a text device if an error condition is detected.

At the simplest level this will do for any served page.

lynx -dump -source > /dev/null 2>&1
if [ $? == 0 ]
echo "ok"
echo "nope"

I hope this helps.
