Bing Search Library for PHP


Developers take note, the Bing Search Library for PHP has arrived and with it, you now have a simple way to submit queries and retrieve results from the Bing Engine via the Bing API. The results you fetch back can then be used in your own PHP application.

To get started, all you need is the code (open sourced under the BSD license), an API key, and the API Docs (you’ll need an MSDN login to access them).

Then, you can follow along with this tutorial written by PHP guru Cal Evans where you can access sample code, too while learning more about Bing’s API. Stay tuned for follow up posts, as well, where he will talk about what possibilities this API access permits. 

This is pretty interesting stuff because it’s entirely unique – no other search engine gives you access to information like this via an API. Now go build something amazing with it!
