Excite is closing its NewsTracker service as of November 15, while its "Search Voyeur" live display feature closed last month. That service showed what people were searching on at the Excite service. It grew out of the WebCrawler Search Ticker and thus was the first and oldest of the live search displays offered.

For those of you who were still depending on NewsTracker for news search needs, don't worry. There are plenty of great alternatives, which you will find below.
