|Yahoo is opening up an API so anybody can use their search services.|
News here. The actual site is here.
They do not use SOAP, they use something called REST.
Yahoo just keeps doing stuff. Sure it is about three years after google did something similar, but it is still great. I like yahoo.
It is also an opportunity for google to support more than 1000 queries a day. Competition is good. Bill, is MSN next?
Yahoo has rate limiting too. Web Search is limited to 5,000 queries per day.
