That isn't a tool that is available as part of the API, however, the free Bing Webmaster Tools provide a keyword research tool that allows you to get the actual number of searches for terms. You can open an account and get started at the link below.
You get out total for every listed source. And then you can calculate how many searches by using the paging defined for every source in the schema document (note that paging is different for different sources):
I cannot seem to get that to work - are you saying that the total number of searches would be returned, or the total number of search results would be returned? I am going for the searches, not the results.
Could you clarify the number of searches question? Is this the number of searches you performed with DataMarket, number of Search results for specific keyword, or number of other users searching for the same keyword?
If you are looking for the actual searches you will need to use the keyword research tool, in Bing Webmaster. While the Bing Webmaster Tools does have an API to get most information, we don't yet have that set up for the keyword analysis, to do programatically.
I was looking for the same info. Considering that this post is 4 months old and Bing just made new changes to their API. Is this still the case? Is it still not possible to programmatically get the estimated search volume for keywords through
the Bing API?
