Yahoo! Search API

Yahoo! now has a search API and a developer network. This means I can use Yahoo!'s search results in this site in exactly the same way I was planning on using Google's.

And now I'm not sure what to do. Yahoo!'s API is simpler to use, has example code in PHP, and accesses 5 of their search services rather than 1 Google service. Not that I'm using them all at the moment, but Google only lets me have 1000 queries per day - Yahoo! quintuples that.

Whatever I end up using, I hope this thing persuades Google to update their stuff - it hasn't changed since August 2002.

Yes, I think the ! on Yahoo! in the middle of a sentence is daft as well.
