Search results limited to top 1000


  • The limitation of search results to the top 1,000 causes serious limitations to the company I work for.


    We need to search on tags such as "tiger woods" and programmatically access all 2.9 million (or more) hits that may be returned. As the Bing API is designed today, we can only access the first 1000 hits, which is painful. I'm sure we would even be willing to discuss licensing/monthly arrangements if the option was available. We just need the limitation removed.


    We're hoping to avoid full implementation of our own web crawler architecture.


    Any thoughts on possible paths to get around this 1k limit?
