Yahoo! Proximity Searching from Tara

Tara Calishain of ResearchBuzz has created a form for running proximity searches at Yahoo! of up to five word proximity. The YNAPS - Yahoo Non-API Proximity Search form basically combines the wild card word in a phrase capability with multiple OR operations. While not officially supported by Yahoo!, this is a great tool for easy proximity searching with Yahoo! Search. Yahoo! Search Review updated.
