Searchmonkey: 70m results viewed daily

This month it's been one year since Yahoo launched two of their products which they are most proud of: BOSS and Searchmonkey. If you would ask a dozen people on the streets of Amsterdam not many would know about these products.

That doesn't mean both products aren't used. Yahoo announced last week that BOSS is now serving 30 million queries a day while Searchmonkey gets 70 million enhanced results viewed daily.

Yahoo announced some numbers about Searchmonkey:
• 70 million enhanced SearchMonkey results are viewed by users every day.
• Site owners have seen a more than 15% increase in the click-through rates of their SearchMonkey search results when tested against non-SearchMonkey results.
• 200 people enter the developer tool and start creating an application each day.
• Over 15,000 developers have registered to build applications, with over 400 applications available for use in galleries.
• RDFa structured data driven by SearchMonkey has increased by 413% since October, 2008.

Yahoo also summarized changes they made to both products:
"With BOSS, we’ve made key updates including allowing developers to monetize through third-party platforms and enabling access to SearchMonkey structured data. The BOSS API is on track to hit 1 billion monthly queries in May, without even including the volume from traditional Yahoo Search syndication. This is more than three times the queries served just six months ago, and ranks ahead of the combined searches on Ask and Facebook, and just behind Microsoft1.

With SearchMonkey, we’ve launched numerous valuable initiatives over the last year. We turned applications default-on for many sites to improve local , reference, and social searches. We also enabled publishers to more easily display enhanced results for video, games, and documents by adding a few lines of code. Additionally, as a part of our effort to promote a more meaningful understanding of the Web, we have continued to support semantic tech gatherings such as VoCamp."

If you read the Yahoo announcement you would say both BOSS and Searchmonkey are huge successes. But are they really? Therefore the new poll on Searchcowboys is about these two products: have you used one of the two products in the last year? Let's find out what Europe is using!
