SearchMonkey

Yahoo SearchMonkey supports hCard 1.0, hCalendar 1.0, hReview 0.4 (in progress), hAtom 0.1, others - launched 2008 May. SearchMonkey is Yahoo!'s program for collecting and displaying structured data, including microformats.

YQL

Yahoo Query Language uses an SQL-like syntax to "normalize" web service calls. In addition to wrapping web services such as Flickr, Yelp, and Zillow, YQL also enables you to extract content directly from web pages. As part of that functionality, YQL can query and filter on microformats. For example, the YQL query:

http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select * from microformats where url%3D'http%3A%2F%2Fupcoming.yahoo.com%2Fvenue%2F23933%2F'&format=xml

extracts all microformats from a particular page on upcoming.yahoo.com.
