Overall Satisfaction with Azure Bing Search

Using Azure Bing Search has been an interesting experience for several reasons. The best part about Bing Custom Search is that it gives me the power of a major search engine (Bing) with the reliability and ease of use I've come to expect from a multinational company like Microsoft. By asking a question I can receive structured answers and in addition, I can also configure a customized solution to search specifically for what I need, it is even easier to find what I want.
  • Stable results
  • A lot of customization and targeting of the search
  • Searching is quite good and fast
  • The price, it is expensive.
  • Filters could be more intuitive.
  • Pagination could be improved.
  • Customize search
  • Integration with api
  • Suggest search terms in real-time
  • Filter and restrict image results
  • Ease of conducting research using the feature Crop, resize, and display thumbnails.
  • Use the multiples endpoints available through the Bing Image Search API, this saves lives.
  • I really appreciate the possibility that customize a search for trending images from around the world.
Azure Bing Custom Search is a commercial-grade solution that lets you create a highly personalized web search experience that delivers dramatically better and more relevant results. While Bing's Web Search API lets you search the entire web, Bing's Custom Search lets you select the slices of the web you want to search and control the ranking when searching within the targeted webspace.

If your desire is to use an Azure Bing Custom Search API for a definitive solution, I recommend that you run a test instance and try it out first. Test it and you will see how easy it is to get the results you want. Take the opportunity to test how easy it is to search for your user.
