Announcing the Yahoo! Search Developer Network and Search Web Services

5000 Queries a Day!
This is great news for developers, the Google API only allows 1000 and as such is very limiting.
You can use your 5000 queries a day to interact with:
Of particular interest to me is the ability to query Yahoo News. This presumably means that adding current news items relating to a page should be very easy - very nice indeed!
Nice job Yahoo!
