Web Search API v7 reference

The Web Search API lets you send a search query to Bing and get back search results that include links to webpages, images, and more. This section provides technical details about the query parameters and headers that you use to request web search results and the JSON response objects that contain them. For examples that show how to make requests, see Bing Web Search overview.

For information about what you can do with the search results, see Use and display requirements.

The request must use the HTTPS protocol.


The maximum URL length is 2,048 characters. To ensure that your URL length does not exceed the limit, the maximum length of your query parameters should be less than 1,500 characters. If the URL exceeds 2,048 characters, the server returns 404 Not found.
