  1. Make it easier to give feedback

    I've started using BCS API as a replacement for GSS on a nationally known brand in the UK. I found your channel 9 video inviting feedback and also the bing api team blog and even a thread on hackernews but I still had no way to give you feedback. It was almost by luck that I stumbled across this uservoice forum. Please try and make the channels for feedback and getting in touch as clear as possible or you may be missing lots of important feedback.

  2. No capping restriction info in docs

    I got the error "You have reached the maximum number of Active and Blocked sites per custom search instance. Please check documentation for more details on the capping restrictions" but there's no information in the documentation on the restrictions

  4. Free tier is completely different API as paid tier

    I used the free tier to determine if Bing custom search is a good match for my needs. Now that I am trying to setup the paid tier, it seems like these are two completely different APIs. The work I did during the prototype phase is potentially lost. Maybe I am just not understanding the documentation. In particular, I need the subsite search capability.

    Make these two search APIs the same so investigations into the utility of the paid tier are not wasted.

    Free tier:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/bing-custom-search/search-your-custom-view

    Paid tier:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/cognitiveservices/bing-web-api-v7-reference#searchresponse

    Seems like there still might be confusion here, so I’m going to re-open this issue.
