Google’s Search APIs

I’ve been messing around lately with Google’s Search APIs including the Google Desktop Search (GDS) and Google Web Search (GWS).

This is part of some experimentations I’m performing in regards to productivity and search engine/applications.

I’ve wrapped both GDS and GWS APIs in a nice .NET assembly (source code in C#). Both of them have the same interface and can generate the result as a .NET DataSet, as an XMLDocument and return the raw format that is being returns from both GDS (string) and GWS (their result structure).

I think its useful for people that wants to access both searches in the same API and integrate this into their applications.

So… here it is.

  1. I the link seems to be down. I’ll try to find the original version but do notice that Google Desktop search has evolved since the last time I’ve updated the code so this code might not work at all.
