Yahoo changes its API

Yahoo! announced its search changes:

"On October 1, 2010, we will close the SearchMonkey developer tool, gallery, and app preferences"

Yahoo! Site Explorer team is planning tighter integration between Site Explorer and Bing Webmaster Center to make the transition as smooth as possible for webmasters"

"Several search-related web services will continue to be supported, but strictly through YQL. These include the
Yahoo! Term Extraction Web Service, Related Suggestion, and Spelling Suggestion. Other non-BOSS search APIs such as Web Search, Image Search, News Search and Site Explorer APIs will shut down with no further support in YQL"

"Search remains critical to Yahoo! and we’re happy to announce that we will continue to offer the
BOSS program (Build your Own Search Service). In the not too distant future, BOSS will provide web and image search results from Microsoft along with other search-related services and content from Yahoo!, such as news"
