  6. include information parsed from webpage in results page

    Similar to the "pagemap" found in google's custom search API response, where certain important information/summary of the result webpage is included in the response json

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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)

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  16. improve keyword search results in Bing search index

    Bing search results bug.

    Bing search index is listing the wrong webpage for the keyword word search Abrar Qureshi Willowbrook.

    This webpage in the search results does not have my letter to the editor on https://www.comiccrusaders.com/valiant-reveals-an-invigorating-lineup-of-new-series-for-2018-and-beyond-with-livewire-bloodshot-rising-spirit-faith-dreamside-and-more/

    The correct website with my letter to the editor that needs to appear in the search results is https://www.comiccrusaders.com/independent-comics-will-not-survive-without-net-neutrality/

    Screenshot of correct webpage is in the attachment.

  17. verbatim search

    I cannot find a verbatim option in the options of the Bing Search API.
    This is a big problem for me. How do I achieve a verbatim (literal) search?

    The difference in my case is: 12.2 million search results that are irrelevant versus 7 search relevant search results I only get in verbatim mode. The difference is huge.

  18. Bug report: include subdomains in operator site:domain.com

    Example:
    site:startpagina.nl "coaching" -prikbord

    startpagina.nl is the most importend Dutch directory with 5000+ subdirectories each on a subdomain.
    the query should give back subdomains like: (in Google search).

    http://coaching.startpagina.nl/

    http://coaching-counselling.startpagina.nl/

    http://wandelcoach.startpagina.nl/

    But the query only gives back www. results like:
    https://www.startpagina.nl
    https://www.startpagina.nl/v/maatschappij/onderwijs/vraag/371779/
    https://www.startpagina.nl/v/financien-werk/carriere-werk/vraag/

    The query "site:startkable.nl" does work for site:startkabel.nl that gives back
    subdomains like:
    http://coaching-counselling.startpagina.nl/

    http://wandelcoach.startpagina.nl/

  20. Bing web search API to search only specific sites

    I'm using Bing web search API for getting articles about health in my Bot. How can I specify in the API which sites(urls) to search? Because sometimes it searches irrelevant sites, like wiki or wikipedia which I don't want to use. I've tried with site: parameter in API but it only gets the first site and ignores the rest urls. Here is the API which I use now: https://api.cognitive.microsoft.com/bing/v5.0/search?q=site:cdc.gov/ NOT site:wikipedia.org/" +url+ "&count=10&offset=0&mkt=en-us&safesearch=Moderate"
