Lately there has been a problem with the market determination and the explicit Market parameter.
Firstly, all of a sudden, if I have no Market parameter specified, the default has been Chinese. Bing used to give me English (I don't know what region).
I decided to make the apllication's default be "Market=en-ww" (English-worldwide), as specified in the old Bing 2.0 API. It is not recognized. (en-US works...)
Is en-ww abandoned?
And based on recent problems, should I assume the new API system will NOT determine the region (or at least provide some English default)?
This seems to be incorrect behavior. Let me look this up and get back to you.
This should be fixed now. Let me know if this works correctly for you.
Just noticed your reply. I'll check. Thanks.
Meanwhile another question:
What is the official list of market parameters (en-US, etc...)?
I can tell you that many of the Bing search engine list country-language pairs simply DON'T work with the Azure Bing API, crash the search, and give errors!
Please advise the exact official working list.
You can see the official list while exploring the dataset:
