The Yahoo! Local Search APIs give users access to a comprehensive database of information and content in Yahoo! Local ranging from business information to user comments to ratings. Data includes business address and phone, category, rating, distance, URL and traffic alerts. Yahoo! Local makes a great addition to any mashup, bringing in location-based relevancy and the additional context of what real people have experienced in these places.
Version 3 of Yahoo! Local Search adds even more features! Users can now request individual business records by using the Yahoo! Local listing id. Yahoo! supports search categories to help users narrow their queries. Finally, results now return the first few lines of the last user review for each listing. The API uses a RESTful protocol and responses are formatted in either XML, JSON and PHP.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
