Alexa Internet announces the launch of a new web service, Alexa Web Search. This service offers programmatic access to Alexa’s web search engine. Developers can use this service to incorporate search results directly into their web sites or services. In addition, developers can now access Historical Traffic and Sites Linking In data through the Alexa Web Information Service (AWIS). For more information about the changes to AWIS and Alexa Top Sites, and how to migrate an existing application to the new versions of these services, please see the recent forums announcement.
