    If you read the PHP example code the programmer has put a comment in half way down the page

    What is there to understand?

    LOL ... programmers might be capable of putting some LI or BRs there... but I think he means that he has no clue how to make it look "neat" (using CSS or whatever) :)

    Just FYI:

    ----------------
    Rate Limit
    Web Search is limited to 5,000 queries per day. See information on rate limiting.
    ----------------

    Isn't the Google API limited to 1,000 per 24 hours?

    The problem with Yahoo's rate limiting, is it's done per IP address. So in the case of the keyword tracker (or things like that), it wouldn't work. You have 20,000+ people using it through a central IP address. It would be nice though...

    This is true, but maybe a portable tool? Something each person can host on their own web server? or maybe home PC?

    But then you get into a lot more support problems. ...
    Eh forget it. :(

    That's what I thought. Run it from your own site like we do with the co-op.

    Or make it a paid for downloadable package (or free :) )....

    Thanks for the post. This API could prove useful and I can't wait until I have the time to learn more of its potential.

    Whether you like MSN or not, they still scored a major win in my book when they offer free RSS(XML) feeds of their search results. I am just waiting for a static IP address so that I can host a keyword ranking service for MSN. I have core logic and backend in place, I just need to pretty it up.

    I am also looking forward to what Google is going to do. They will be forced to expand their API in the least.

    it's nice, but the IP based limit makes it useless for public tools

    Hmm... what protocols does the Y API use? Maybe you could make a clientside tool that autoposts results to a public 'analysis' page. Maybe. :p

    Yeah some thing like Shawns for Google will be nice as the present one is very useful though not 100% accurate.

    The IP based limit is IMHO set to 5000 queries... AFAIK the Google API still limits at 1000 and often just returns wrong or inaccurate data, compared to original DC queries/scrapes.

    What the hell happens if several sites on a shared IP hit the API? They all get cut off after 5k queries?
