You probably have a ton of stuff on the Internet, all contained within your "digital life stream", spread across a seemingly unending list of web services and social networks. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a way to search through all of that, Google style? Enter Greplin, almost certainly named after the Unix grep command, taking the many service inputs and piping them to its search tool.
Our API directory now includes 453 search APIs. The newest is the Automatton Instant Answers API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the eBay API. We list 220 eBay mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of search APIs.
Innovation in web service APIs is not always technical, sometimes it's about money. Such is the case with Yahoo's announcement that later this year they will begin charging for usage of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service), their search web service for developers. Given that search revenue is typically ad-driven, and that advertising doesn't typically mesh with APIs, this has meant that search APIs have been one of the most challenging classes of APIs for providers to monetize. So it's notable to see how Yahoo has chosen to tackle this: via a 'utility' pricing model, somewhat akin to how infrastructure services like Amazon Web Services charge by usage.
