Now that you realize how simple it is to incorporate Google’s Web API Service in your application, here are few things you could do with this service

  • Issue regularly scheduled search requests to monitor the web for new information on a subject
  • Perform market research by analyzing differences in the amount of information available on different subjects over time.
  • Search via non-HTML interfaces, such as the command line, pagers, or visualization applications.
  • Create innovative games that play with information on the web.
  • Add Google spell-checking to an application

Google’s Web APIs support the same search syntax as the Google.com site and provide each developer who registers to use the Google Web API service a limit of 1,000 queries per day.
