  1. Show full news story

    When I make an API call I receive only a partial of the full news story. Is there an option to view the full story?

  3. Bing Image Search API isn't actually a product. Call it what it is to avoid confusion (Bing Search V7)!

    Get people who aren't familiar with Azure and have them do a task on AWS, GCP, and Azure using only available documentation. Time them, watch their struggles. Figure out why Azure documentation is so horrible and fix it.

  4. Fix duplicate results in Bings News API

    Please fix the issue of duplicate listings in your News API. It's at the point where people need to look at alternatives.

    Here's an example:

    I might try to collect all news on Comcast in en-ww.

    Total estimated matches will say something like 555,000 results.

    But the API will only return roughly 300 unique results after paginating so offset = totalestimatedmatches.

    This results in a significant number of wasted API calls.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  14. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
