Mathew – I use this URL to get series update info.

String url = “https://api.stlouisfed.org/fred/series?series_id=” + this.name + “&api_key=” + ApiKey.get();

I check 3300 series I watch each day. The problem is FRED throttles requests so I pause a random period of time between each call. Still, at points I will begin to get null data back and need to pause to 30 seconds before FRED accepts requests again. It takes around 25 minutes to find those series I watch that have been updated.

You may be able to work with them to get a list of daily/weekly updates or for them to remove throttling in middle of night.
