Yahoo Slurp is a web crawler based on search engine technology Yahoo acquired when it purchased Inktomi. Although some Yahoo Search results are powered by Yahoo partners, sites should allow Yahoo Slurp access in order to appear in Yahoo Mobile Search results. Additionally, Slurp collects content from partner sites for inclusion within sites like Yahoo News, Yahoo Finance, and Yahoo Sports.
