New Katrina Missing Persons Meta Search Site & Spidering Issues With Red Cross Site

Katrina Search is another new
service designed to let you meta search from a variety of web sites that have
information about people missing in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Search Katrina Missing Persons Sites
from Lycos and Katrina: Search
for Missing People
from Yahoo are two others we
going up last week.

Sites not
yet in sync on searches
looks at how Yahoo cofounder David Filo got
personally involved to create the Yahoo service. It also illustrates how what
sounds to me to be dynamic URLs from a Microsoft server platform meant a new
site from the Red Cross became unspiderable by Yahoo and other services.

That’s apparently been fixed or will be shortly. The story calls the site
"Family First" but I believe it is actually this one:
Family Links Registry.
