So You Wanna Be a SearchMonkey?

Yahoo is creating some wide open spaces for web developers. This is no API playground, people. It’s a zoo.

SearchMonkey will let developers go hog wild with search results. Simple links are so old school. Listings could now include photos, reviews, ratings and contact information via developer mashups. Want portability? You got it.

And if you don’t want it, you should. Yesterday, I reported that search is integral in finding social media results that affect a consumer’s opinion about brands. SearchMonkey should be a tremendous tool to help influence your online reputation.

The launch party for SearchMonkey is May 15th. Here are the details:

When:May 15, 2008, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Where:Yahoo! Headquarters – Url’s Café, 701 First Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94089

RSVP: Register at AND send your full name and company name to Space is limited.
