Search Engine Submitting Problem

Problem:

I need to come up w/a way to submit multiple links from a web site to a search engine. These links will be ever changing. They are members of a group. Sometimes the group changes and people are removed and sometimes peoople are added.

The links might look something like this

www.mysite.com?memberName=BobJones
www.mysite.com?memberName=RickSmith
www.mysite.com?memberName=JonMcHenry
www.mysite.com?memberName=RickDuey

What I need is a way to sumbmit these people to the search engines. If they change, I need them removed from the search engines.

Example
Week1
Add these people to the search engines
www.mysite.com?memberName=BobJones
www.mysite.com?memberName=RickSmith
www.mysite.com?memberName=JonMcHenry
www.mysite.com?memberName=RickDuey

Week4
Add these people to the search engines
www.mysite.com?memberName=JenniferJones
www.mysite.com?memberName=JackieChan

Remove these people from the search engines
www.mysite.com?memberName=JonMcHenry
www.mysite.com?memberName=BobJones

What methods and/or software might I need in order to attack this task? One other fact. This list may be as big as 4000 people.

Your thoughts??

You would need a server side language to do it with the database.

I guess what I'm asking is 'What software out there can help do the sumbmitting to add and remove sites to search engines?'

Most search engine sites (Google) and such ban people that submit sites more then once. They normally only neeed the top domain and the spiders do all of the searching.

I personally would say is create one page that continas all of the links and let the spider find it.

Maybe someone else knows of anything that would perform this action.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
