AltaVista News Makes Some Changes

AltaVista News which I like for some of my research since it has a longer archive than Google News (AltaVista's goes back to July 2001) has made a couple of changes.

AltaVista was using Moreover to stock their news search engine until late June, when they switched over to AlltheWeb's crawler. They have added more sources (they have about 4,000) and have a total of about 9.5 million unique articles in their archives.

I learned about this change via a phone call with AltaVista I had recently. I can't get into everything they told me yet, but I *will* say that I do feel better about the Yahoo acquisition of AltaVista. Stay tuned.
