local.search returns 503 - Service Unavailable

When using the local.search YQL database, i _always_ receive a 503 error. It seems this error has been on and off for the past week or two, but as of hte past 24 hours, i havent been able to pull anything from local.search.

Even if you use one of the pre-built sample queries from the console, you'll see the error:

http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console/?q=...isco%2C%20ca%22

Whats the problem, and when will it be fixed?

    Same problem here. I really don't want to change my whole app over to google, but it seems that local.search is unreliable. Any update would be much appreciated.

  • Hi,

    We have notified the local team and they are aware of this issue and are working on it.

    I'll post back here when it is resolved.


    Thanks -Paul

  • This is the YQL interface to local that is broken. The underlying local search API, that YQL uses, appears to still be working:

    I've been trying to find something similar. Google has a Places API, which I feel like is similar, but in a developer preview stage. It's been like that since July, I found YQL after trying to get access to the Places API. I found YQL, which works perfectly, except when it gives errors. I understand something going wrong for a few hours or a day but not weeks.

  • This is ridiculous. local.search has been down for weeks.

    I'm done with yahoo products. ive never had a problem like this with ANY of the google products.

  • Hi,

    The local.search table is working now via the console and REST endpoints.

    The breakage was due to a change made in the local search API servers which has now been fixed.


    Thanks -Paul
