    Question

  • When I do a search on the bing website, I notice two sets of "related items".  The first is a list of results that appear in a horizontal row above the grid of thumbnails.  I believe this corresponds to what's returned with the RelatedSearch API.

    The second is a vertical list on the right side of the page under the heading "Related Topics"  Is this list also available via the API in some way?

  • Can you give a sample? On Bing website, I only see "related searches" on the right side of the page. There's nothing titled "related topics". Which search condition are you using? There is indeed a horizontal "also try" section, which is only available if you sign in. It is not available for general customers, and is not available in the API.

  • hi Chris,

    Thanks for posting!

    Generally speaking, when we get the search result, we may need set the result style by our need.As far as I know, Bing API didn't support this API,I suggest you can submit a feature suggestion on http://www.mygreatwindowsazureidea.com/forums/34192-windows-azure-feature-voting.

    And you may get more detail about Bing API,please refer to this link:http://www.bing.com/developers/s/APIBasics.html

    Thanks
