Best Buy Co. and American Express Co. are among the companies popping up on a new "Offshore Tracker" Web site attempting to monitor the overseas employment moves of U.S. companies -- a hot-button issue this year on the presidential campaign trail.

The Web site address is: www.techsunite.org/offshore.
