Yahoo Kills SearchMonkey, Rolls Back BOSS, Says YQL Will Live

This week, the Bing search engine will begin powering some Yahoo searches, and the company is finally revealing what that deal will mean for Yahoo’s developer tools. Here’s a quick summary:

  • The SearchMonkey semantic search program will close October 1.
  • Build Your Own Search Service (BOSS) will become a paid service and will show Bing results.
  • Some Geo, Maps, and Local APIs will be shut down, but some will live on.
  • MyBlogLog APIs will be discontinued.
  • The Yahoo Query Language (YQL) will continue to be used.
  • The Delicious social bookmarking site will also live on.
