[goodrelations] Yahoo integration with Bing: Impact on GoodRelations Markup

Dear all:

Many of you have waited for a definite answer on what will happen to  
Yahoo's support of GoodRelations markup to enhance organic search  

Here is Yahoo's official announcement:


In a nutshell (as expected), the free SearchMonkey development  
environment and the Yahoo BOSS API will be closed or much more  
restricted soon.

But the good thing is that despite the fundamental change to Yahoo  
search technology (now relying on Bing's main index), they kept  
fetching and storing GoodRelations markup and will continue to augment  
the rendering of your page in the organic search results, if  
GoodRelations markup is available in the page:

Quote: "Yahoo! Search results pages will continue to show enhanced  
result templates from websites’ page markup and structured data feeds  
along with Microsoft’s organic listings."

So Yahoo's support for GoodRelations has survived a very critical time  
in Yahoo's history.

Best wishes
