Yahoo News Search API - advanced search? - any more request parameters?

Discussion in 'Yahoo API' started by jmunjr, Dec 8, 2007.

    Hi I am trying to find out if there are more Request parameters available for the News Search API service ?

    http://developer.yahoo.com/search/news/V1/newsSearch.html

    Specifically, I'd like to be able to search just "in the headline of the article" as one can do when going to the advanced search here - http://news.search.yahoo.com/news/advanced

    I'd also like to retrieve news specific to certain categories

    Are there request parameters available using the API? There aren't many listed in the documentation.

    Alternatively if not on Yahoo where is a good place I can got to get a news RSS feed for about 4000 queries per day where I can do an "all keywords", category specific search of just headlines?

    I am kind of new here and appreciate any help from you guys. Thanks

    Hmm, not seeing them. If I search the page for the words "headline" or "category" nothing comes up.

    what would the querystrings be for each of those?

    Sorry I wasn't more clear. You can't search by headline or category using the API. The only available search parameters are those that Yahoo! has listed on that page.
