Can YAHOO BOSS search on multiple sites folders?

Dear Everyone,

I know that Yahoo BOSS Search on search on multiple sites. like sites:cnn.com,abc.com.
but if I would like to search in more details. like

sites:edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/,abc.go.com/schedule

including dedicated subfolders under dedicated domain.

I have tried the following 2 methods but not working.

Method 1 : (2 site folders delimited by comma append at the end of the search phrase.)

http://boss.yahooapis.com/ysearch/web/v1/{search words} site:edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/,abc.go.com/schedule

Method 2 : defined in the optional arguments

{appid:[appid], format:json, sites:"sports.yahoo.com/nfl,go.com/schedule"}

See if someone has any good idea.

Regards,
Eddie

  • Hi Eddie,

    I can do some checking on this but I would recommend posting this question to the search group at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/yws-search-general/ instead - you'll probably get someone there who has run into the same issue.
