    You can fundamental information on what JSON is at http://www.json.org/, on what SOAP is at http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/REC-soap12-part0-20070427/ 

    In the context of the Live Search API, there is absolutely no difference between any of the protocols - only the serialization format and the protocol to receive parameters change. The back end is the same.

  • Documentation on how to use Live Search API can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd251056.aspx. Since you are using ASP.NET I would recommend using either the SOAP interface or, if you are aiming for an AJAX implementation, our JSON interface.

    As for Google, they only have a JSON interface, so you have a choice of AJAX or you can write a WCF REST client for their service. Try searching on http://www.live.com/search?q=google+search+api for Google API resources.
