Get Started with Bing Search APIs in under 5 Minutes


Did you know that you can create your desired search scenario in under 5 minutes? By following the quickstart guides for the Bing Search APIs, you will be able to bring the knowledge of the web to your application quickly and easily.


Available in six languages – C#, Java, Node.js, Python, Ruby, and PHP – you can integrate and evaluate the APIs in your development environment with the use of a free access key. These quickstarts are available in the “documentation” section of each API or you can access all of them in one go from this GitHub repository:




With just three simple steps, you can build a rich app using Bing APIs. For example, if you are building your app in C#, you can integrate the Bing Web Search API calls in the below steps:

  1. Copy the C# quick-start code (or code in your preferred language) from here and paste it into your favorite IDE. Change the query string to whatever you would like to search for.
  2. Get the free access key for Bing Search APIs from here and enter it into the “access key” field of the copied code.
  3. Build and execute your code to check the JSON response of your first query. 

And that’s it! That’s what it takes to get started with the Bing Search APIs and build a delightful search experience into your app.


Quickstarts and tutorials are available in the “Documentation” section of the corresponding Bing API.


Happy coding!
