New BOSS Features Announced Today

The BOSS team announced a handful of new features over on the Yahoo! Search Blog today. Here's a quick summary of what's new:

SearchMonkey Structured Data
- BOSS developers can now access structured data marked up with microformats or RDF.

Expanded Abstracts - BOSS is now making 300 character abstracts available to give developers more data for semantic analysis or longer abstract presentations.

Site Explorer Data - Inlink and page-level data from Site Explorer can now be accessed via BOSS as well. This data can be used for result reranking and other purposes.

Open Monetization - The terms of service for BOSS have been changed to allow developers to use third party monetization platforms.

Pricing - The BOSS team has announced its plans for introducing usage fees at the end of Q2.
