YDN Q&A with DuckDuckGo, a search engine built with BOSS

Rahul Hampole, Senior Product Manager for Yahoo! Search BOSS, recently interviewed DuckDuckGo founder Gabriel Weinberg by email for the Yahoo! Developer Network’s blog. One of the Q&A’s include:

How does Yahoo! Search BOSS appeal to a developer like you (both on the product side and the business side)?

GW: On the product side, it enables a developer to deliver a fully functioning general-purpose search engine to a consumer, which is pretty amazing if you think about it. As such, it really opens up the possibility to innovate in search.

On the business side, the pricing structure enables you to find a profitable niche. Third-party advertising is allowed, and you can also use the Yahoo! Search ads, which should cover costs.
