Yahoo Search Makes APIs Publicly Available

Danny, Chris and I are here in NY at SES but we’re still trying to post items to the blog. Here’s some big news (especially for the developers out there) from Yahoo!

Yahoo! Search application programming interfaces (APIs) are now publicly available from the just announced Yahoo Search Developer Network.

The YSDN features Yahoo! Search APIs which span Web search verticals, search engine marketing and direct advertising products including:

+ Web Search
+ Image Search
+ Video Search
+ News Search
+ Local Search
+ Spelling Correction
+ Related Searches
+ Overture

APIs enable developers and webmasters to easily create search-enabled applications that leverage Yahoo! Search Technology. Each API provides developers with access to 5,000 queries per day per day. In addition to providing web search services, the Yahoo Search Developer Network provides public access to the APIs the Overture division of Yahoo! has provided to its partners since 2001.

I’m sure Jerry Yang will have more to say about the YSDN when he chats with Danny during a keynote “interview” later today.
