  1. Document the cases in which titles are truncated

    When I query News via Bing News API v7, sometimes I get truncated titles, e.g. "Allow pinning of unindexed URLs..." instead of "Allow pinning of unindexed URLs in Bing Custom Search" title of the article on the referenced website.
    Similar to the situation described here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/57954384/bing-news-search-api-returns-truncated-name-of-news

    Please, document cases in which this may happen.

  2. image search doesn't show image from wikipedia

    when searching for 'olm salamander (site:commons.wikimedia.org OR site:wikipedia.org)', filtered on images that can be used and shared commercially, the search results do not return the main image on the 'olm salamander' wikipedia page
    see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olm
    see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olm#/media/File:ProteusanguinusPostojnskaJamaSlovenija.jpg

    while searching for 'ProteusanguinusPostojnskaJamaSlovenija (site:commons.wikimedia.org OR site:wikipedia.org)' shows a smaller version of the said image. Image is 800x333, but images on results have with/height < 250.

  8. Include "people also search for" in the api response

    As well as includeing 'related searches' the api could return 'people also search for' in the repsonse. It appears on the web, on desktop, in the right hand column of the page.

  13. Article date and author

    Results on Bing.com sometimes include article date and author. It would be great if these were also in the API response.

  14. AND & OR operator

    Google API can seach for "<WORD1>" AND/OR "<WORD2>" in the HTML document body/title. But Bing API do not enforce that both words must be present in the document body/title. It would be good if Bing API can search both words in the document body/title as same as Google API.

  17. Bing Web Search Java SDK with responseFilter="Entities"

    I am trying to use the Bing Web Search SDK for Java to get Entity results using the responseFilter as described in the REST API - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/cognitiveservices/bing-web-api-v7-reference. I have a subscription key for both Bing Web Service and Bing Entities Service. I want to get entity results for persons who are not well-known. I am setting up my query in the as follows for the SDK (I am using the Java SDK in Scala) -

    val at = List(AnswerType.fromString("Entities")).asJava
    val webData: SearchResponse = client.bingWebs().search()

                              .withQuery(&quot;&quot;&quot;brian johnson &quot;MITRE&quot; (site:linkedin.com)&quot;&quot;&quot;)
    
    .withResponseFilter(at)
    .withCount(10)

  19. Web Search snippet should match what is being searched when using Bing Web search API

    When we are using Web Search API the snippet or the description is absolutely different from what we have given the query. The snippet should match the query.

  20. Any way to create custom search that gives Bing results?

    Any way to create custom search that gives Bing results? I was a long time Google CSE user and there was an option to create a search that would just search the entire web.

    Any way to do that with a custom search here? I would love just to create a custom search that searches Bing instead of having to load in website feeds.

    Can this be done?
