Yahoo BOSS Now Serving 100 Queries Per Second
The Yahoo Search Blog announced that BOSS, Yahoo’s build your own search service, is now serving 10 million queries per day. That is about 100 queries per second and according to Yahoo, who cites comScore, that is just behind Ask.com’s search volume.
Note, these queries do not count as part of Yahoo’s search network, because they are technically served at third party web sites.
We asked Yahoo which services were using BOSS most often, which queries were most popular and so on. Yahoo was unable to give us an answer, due to not having their partner’s consent. It would be nice to see how searchers are utilizing this service, i.e. top search sites, top search queries and so on.
