In July of last year, Yahoo! launched BOSS which stands for Build your Own Search Service. The concept behind the service is to enable web developers to create search options for various websites and applications based on Yahoo! search technology.
Last November, Yahoo! enabled Key Terms for BOSS. Then in January came the announcement that Yahoo! would be charging for BOSS usage (which will begin at some point in the second quarter of this year).
Now another announcement comes in the form of added capabilities. They are:
- Delicious content (including Delicious saves, top tags, and count information)
- Advanced language capabilities
- News sorting functionality
