Yahoo’s “Build Your Own Search Service” (Yahoo Search BOSS) has announced a beta integration with blog search.
Developers now have access to a custom blog search API, where the relevancy is specifically designed for blogs, including provider, author, date and even relevant content terms.
Now that developers have access to this API, get ready for some powerful search applications coming from the Yahoo search world soon. This API pricing costs 10 cents per 1,000 queries – incentivizing developers not only to make powerful applications, but ones they can effectively monetize as well.
This continues to be a fascinating project for Yahoo, and a seemingly effective way to encourage development partners.
