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.
Yahoo has taken a major step in the evolution of search APIs with today's release of BOSS (Build Your Own Search Service). The BOSS platform lets developers build their own full-blown custom search applications on Yahoo's index of the Internet, the same infrastructure that underlies Yahoo Search.
