Yahoo Talks Up Search BOSS [ysearchblog.com] API
We launched Yahoo! Search BOSS this past July and we just reached a significant milestone - the BOSS API is currently serving more than 10 million queries per day. 10 million in and of itself isn't particularly significant, but we're sharing it because we believe growing to more than 100 queries a second in just over 5 months says something about the demand for an open search platform. As a point of reference, the total queries from these developer-built, BOSS-powered search engines would rank ahead of the combined searches done on both Facebook and Amazon, and just behind Ask.com. Note that because these queries are delivered via the BOSS API and served up by our partners, they aren't counted as Yahoo! Search queries by comScore or other metrics providers.
