Feedster Provides Online Resource for Job Seekers


San Francisco, CA, January 19, 2005 -- Feedster is a rapidly growing Internet search engine that leverages the massive adoption of RSS and XML to provide timely, meaningful search for web service developers and consumers. Today, the Company announced that is operational and ready to deliver search results from its database of constantly updated RSS job feeds.

From its current sources, Feedster adds over 5,000 job postings to its index daily. This number will increase exponentially as several more significant resources add their feeds to the Feedster index and as RSS feeds become an important publishing media for timely and relevant information.

“Our organic growth has accelerated as the rapid adoption of RSS continues to move more mainstream. Feedster now indexes more than 3.5 million RSS feeds and quickly approaching 4 million,” said Scott Rafer, CEO, Feedster. “Out of that index we deliver tens of millions of search queries monthly from our site, through our network of distributed content providers, and to individual users subscribing to Feedster search feeds.”

The launch of is significant not only for the value it provides to job seekers and employers but also because it is the first of Feedster"s vertical search offerings. Several more vertical search services will follow throughout the winter and spring.

Creating RSS feeds for content such as job postings provides the publisher with a means to distribute content across the Internet. Job seekers can both search postings at and also subscribe to feeds that match their criteria. Those subscriptions make sure that job seekers get new and updated postings from all sources delivered directly to their RSS reader.
