There’s been some discussion of late on search APIs. For those of you who might be looking for a Search API provider, may we offer you our complete set of Yahoo! Search Web Services for your programming pleasure?
With Yahoo! Search Web Services you can write programs using data from Local Search, News Search, Video Search and Web Search, among others. Our search APIs offer generous rate limits and are based on the REST specification. REST is relatively easy to get up to speed on and to use, no SOAP programming required.
Also, with our Site Explorer APIs, you can keep tabs on traffic and usage by querying for the pages in the Yahoo! index and the sites linking into a site. Additionally, we’ve recently added updateNotification, which you can use to update us of changes to your site.
If you have any questions or comments about our search APIs, please leave us a comment below, or better, suggest them at our Suggestion Board!
