Yahoo expands BOSS functionality

Yahoo seems to be busy implementing new features to it's BOSS platform. BOSS appears to be gaining momentum in form of many interesting mashups and verticals that have been build on top of it lately.

The new piece of functionality they call Vertical Lens offers faceted search over structured content. Custom results can also be blended with generic search results. Yahoo says it's possible to tweak the ranking of search results and also feed proprietary content in real time.

At this time the new feature is only available to selected partners but Yahoo is working on extending the availability.
