Build your own Search Engine with Yahoo!

Looks like Google isn’t the only ones handing out internal technologies to the public. Yahoo announced that it will be making its search technology available to users, with a new package called Build your Own Search Service (BOSS).

This however, must be the best part. BOSS taps directly into Google API’s to retrieve information! That’s right, Google API’s. The service then allows users to stick the information onto their websites and to add them to data from other web services.

Yahoo says that this new package will allow users to create customized search engines that return results based on there search preferences and social networking network connections.

BOSS is being offered as an alternative to Yahoo’s previous search API’s, which restricted users to 5000 queries a day.
