Bing News Engine Results API

/ Home / Bing Search API / Bing News API

Our Bing News API allows you to scrape SERP results from a Bing News. The API is accessed through the following endpoint: /search?engine=bing_news. A user may query the following: https://serpapi.com/search?engine=bing_news utilizing a GET request. Head to the playground for a live and interactive demo.

API Parameters

Search Query

q

Required

Parameter defines the search query. You can use anything that you would use in a regular Bing search. (e.g., 'query', NOT, OR, site:, filetype:, near:, ip:, loc:, feed: etc.).

Geographic Location

mkt

Optional

The market where the results come from (e.g. en-US). Typically, mkt is the country where the user is making the request from. However, it could be a different country if the user is not located in a country where Bing delivers results. The market must be in the form <language code>-<country code>. For example, en-US. The string is case insensitive. For a list of possible market values, see Market Codes.

NOTE: If known, you are encouraged to always specify the market. Specifying the market helps Bing route the request and return an appropriate and optimal response. If you specify a market that is not listed in Market Codes, Bing uses a best fit market code based on an internal mapping that is subject to change.

This parameter and the cc query parameter are mutually exclusive—do not specify both.

Localization

cc

Optional

Parameter defines the country to search from. It follows the 2-character ISO_3166-1 format. (e.g., us for United States, de for Germany, gb for United Kingdom, etc.).

Pagination

first

Optional

Parameter controls the offset of the organic results. This parameter defaults to 1. (e.g., first=10 will move the 10th organic result to the first position).

count

Optional

Parameter controls the number of results per page. This parameter is only a suggestion and might not reflect actual results returned.

Advanced Bing News Parameters

qft

Optional

Parameter defines results sorted by date. If the parameter is not set, it will default to the "Best match" sorting, otherwise, if set to: e.g. interval="4", it will show results from the past hour. Other options are:
interval="7": Past 24 hours,
interval="8": Past 7 days,
interval="9": Past 30 days,
sortbydate="1": Most Recent

Advanced Filters

safeSearch

Optional

Parameter defines the level of filtering for adult content. It can be set to:

Off to return webpages with adult text, images, or videos.
Moderate to return webpages with adult text, but not adult images or videos.
Strict to not return webpages with adult text, images, or videos.

Serpapi Parameters

engine

Required

Set parameter to bing_news to use the Bing API engine.

device

Optional

Parameter defines the device to use to get the results. It can be set to desktop (default) to use a regular browser, tablet to use a tablet browser (currently using iPads), or mobile to use a mobile browser (currently using iPhones).

no_cache

Optional

Parameter will force SerpApi to fetch the Bing News results even if a cached version is already present. A cache is served only if the query and all parameters are exactly the same. Cache expires after 1h. Cached searches are free, and are not counted towards your searches per month. It can be set to false (default) to allow results from the cache, or true to disallow results from the cache. no_cache and async parameters should not be used together.

async

Optional

Parameter defines the way you want to submit your search to SerpApi. It can be set to false (default) to open an HTTP connection and keep it open until you got your search results, or true to just submit your search to SerpApi and retrieve them later. In this case, you'll need to use our Searches Archive API to retrieve your results. async and no_cache parameters should not be used together. async should not be used on accounts with Ludicrous Speed enabled.

api_key

Optional

Parameter defines the SerpApi private key to use.

output

Optional

Parameter defines the final output you want. It can be set to json (default) to get a structured JSON of the results, or html to get the raw html retrieved.
