Oodle API

Today Oodle introduced an API that enables any marketplace to easily integrate Oodle Search.  You can see two different implementations at Lycos and Backpage.com.

Using the API benefits a marketplace by helping their users find what they’re looking for — both from listings posted directly on their site or from listings available in other local marketplaces.  And by more broadly promoting Oodle search through this API, we continue to help the partners in our index who gain more brand exposure and more traffic.  As always, Oodle search results link directly to the source and are attributed as such.

We plan to make the API publicly available but we’re currently only working with interested partners.  We still need to shake out the implementation (with respect to features, level of abstraction, etc.).   If you have comments or ideas on what you’d like to see, please let me know.

    Hi Saqib,

    Glad to see you using our API. We have a great community of developers using our API and they’re pretty active on a discussion group. If you post your question there, I’m sure someone will be able to help you out. Check out groups.yahoo.com/group/oodleapi

    Good luck!
