Bing Local Business Search API
News|2 November 2018
Microsoft has announced the Bing Local Business Search API is available in public preview, as the latest addition to their existing Search APIs and Cognitive Services platform.
The Bing Search APIs on Cognitive Services provide capabilities to search for web pages, images, videos, and news across billions of documents hosted across the web (the Bing Knowledge Graph).
The Bing Local Business Search API helps users search for local businesses in a given area of interest, enabling them to easily find local business information from Bing’s industry-leading index within your applications and websites.
By using this service, users are able to search for information on millions of local businesses from hundreds of categories including Food & Drink, Professionals & Services, Retail, Healthcare, and more. User queries can be pertaining to a single entity, such as “Microsoft City Center Plaza Bellevue” or a collection of results like “Microsoft Offices In Redmond WA”. Category queries, such as “Italian Restaurant” are also supported. You can find more information on how to call the API and supported scenarios within Microsoft’s detailed developer resources.
