Error submitting sitemap to Yahoo

Error submitting sitemap to Yahoo

I get the following Error message when attempting to submit my sitemap to Yahoo (with the latest version of Surveyor):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <Error xmlns="urn:yahoo:api">
The following errors were detected:
<Message>The service has been shut down. For further details, please see the Deprecated Services blog post</Message>

I'm no expert on Search Engine submission - could anyone explain what the situation is here? (The blog pos wasn't that helpful to me!)

It looks like Yahoo are ceasing their Webmaster Tools service and integrating it with Microsofts Bing and one of the things they have done already is shut down the site explorer API.

This means that tools that currently use the API will no longer function for the purpose of communicating with Yahoo, including Surveyor.

It should still continue with the other services though, so until a dot release is on the cards its probably just a case of ignoring the error.
