Bing has a custom search API which allows you to build an ads-free search for your site.

It'll also give you control over which domains, subsites, or webpages to deliver SERPs from.

  • Free hosted UI for search experience.
  • Free access keys to explore, tweak, and configure your search instance followed by a pay-as-you-go subscription.
  • Ability to promote, demote, and pin search results.
  • Trusted indexing and relevance capabilities of Bing.


  • [blogs.bing.com...]

    You'll need to sign up and get your API key, of course.

    Here's a video on the topic.

    Having a site search on large sites is a plus. This looks to serve that purpose and quite a bit more.

    Sounds great. Something to keep in mind as a back-up for site search.

    Hmm... Would be great if it's possible to hack it so I can put specific affiliate ads at the top of the search results for specific queries...

    @martinibuster

    Says the UI is hosted but doesn't say it has to be on their page. I think we can put the UI on our page and have ads above/below.

    I do exactly that with another site search service.
