    Is there an outside source/website that tells what changes have happened to a website contents? (Like how you can know the changes that have happened on WIkipedia)

    You could check here, but that might be a bit tedious.

    unless you have a your own archives and a way of monitoring it there is no system that does it.
    HTML code does not have any built in system and unless they are marked in some type of change log from the owner there is no way to do it.

    It like if I edit a paper I wrote. Unless you personally go threw it and look for the changes they would not be marked. I sure as hell never market changes in my final copy of a paper.
    In code I might leave the older stuff that I removed just commented out but even that is hit or miss if I bother doing it and if it is needed depending on what I am doing. Heck during the Work in progress some code is commented out that I pulled from else were but in the final version that commented out code or test code is removed as it is not needed and a waste of space as it was not an update.

    What I want is...

    I want the reader to know that certain changes /edits have happened to a static website without I manually telling so in a blog post or twit. I would like the "Recent Activities" function of the Google Sites blog in one of my own sites.

    That's nice. It doesn't exist unless you want to start a wiki. Maybe you'll write a program that does this.
