Yahoo dumps Google, adds RSS

As reported pretty much everywhere today, last night Yahoo dumped Google in favor of their own search technology for U.S.-based sites. And if you look at Yahoo’s advanced search, you’ll notice you can choose the file format to search – which enables searching only RSS feeds. Unless I’m missing it, though, there’s no way to return Yahoo’s results as RSS instead of HTML.

  1. Yahoo and Google

    Yahoo’s decision to drop Google and opt instead for their own search technology (reported on widely yesterday; eg, Nick Bradbury), has created some interest … For one thing, it allows the user to search just RSS feeds. At Boing Boing

  2. FYI: You can easily search for RSS (or any other file type) with Google by doing the following:
    search terms filetype:ext
    Works like a charm.
