Yahoo search api: internal server error

Discussion in 'Yahoo API' started by monchito, Jun 15, 2008.

    Hi, i'm using the yahoo search api for several sites of mine for an internal site search.
    SEMrush
    The yahoo api seems to be offline now. I keep getting an '500 internal server error'. What I want to know is: has someone else witnessed this too the last couple days and does this happen more often?

    For the record: i use php's file_get_contents() function to grab an output. This is an example query:

    http://search.yahooapis.com/WebSearchService/V1/webSearch?appid=APPID&output=php&query=BROKEN&results=10&site=MYSITE.COM&start=1

    I have problems with this API too, this is first time for about 2 years.
    Now getting just a blank response, Search Engine Update Monitor can't obtain the data...
