The __init__.py indicates a package  
<http://docs.python.org/tutorial/modules.html#packages>
You didn't tell the package name (the name of the directory containing  
__init__.py) so this is somewhat generic. If the package name is foo, use:
 from foo import SearchError
If foo is a subpackage under bar, use:
 from bar.foo import SearchError

It *might* be:
 from yahoo.search.web import WebSearch
or perhaps:
 from yahoo.search import WebSearch

You can enter those lines in the interactive interpreter to discover the  
right form. (This really ought to have been documented)
