Yahoo has killed off its SearchMonkey platform as the company continues to move its search services to Microsoft.
Yahoo said in a blog post that it will close the platform at the end of next month, disabling third-party custom results and infobar applications along with Yahoo search data services.
The firm introduced SearchMonkey in 2008, allowing web developers to better manage and present data within Yahoo search result pages.
"As we look to the future of Yahoo Search, we are focusing on new search related offerings we believe will provide additional value for publishers and partners," wrote Yahoo search principal product manager Natasha Fattedad.
"In order to align our resources on strategic priorities, we have decided to close the SearchMonkey developer tool, gallery and app preferences on October 1 2010."
The company will also begin the larger transition to Microsoft services this week. Yahoo plans to add a 'Powered by Bing' logo to its search page in the coming days, and will begin testing the process for transitioning its Search Marketing platform to Microsoft.
