WSJ reports that Amazon(Alexa) plans to allow software and Web developers to request customized data searches when it scans the Web to seek new information, something that other commercial search engines generally don't allow. Through the just launched The Alexa Web Search Platform, it provides public access to the vast web crawl collected by Alexa Internet. Users can search and process billions of documents - even create their own search engines - using Alexa's search and publication tools. The tools shall let developers make special requests for information such as images or music files during Web crawls. Big search service players offer developers access to their Web indexes. Most of them offer software-developer kits and APIs, or application programming interface, which let programs access an operating system and other services.
