Bing image API returns only US results


  • Hi,

    I struggle a bit with the BING image search api. I set the market to en-GB and yet if I search for football I just get american football results. I have to use Soccer ( which is not really used in the uk) in order to get the football results that I want. Yet if I search on the bing homepage it brings up the correct football images for the search term football.

    Am I missing some settings here?

  • Well that was useless. I waited all day for a response then I get a simple "please call your local support hotline" generic type of response. After eventually finding a number ( the only number) and going through 15 gazillion menu options the person I spoke to hang up on me. 

    Is there anything else I can do that actually helps me to get a solution to my problem?
