What is Bing News Search?

 
Bing News Search allows you to search the internet for news articles. Search results include related news and categories, image of the article, URL, date added and provider information. The latest version of Bing News Search has new sorting and filtering options which means that you can simplify finding specific results in news topics.
 
The Bing News Search API allows developers to integrate its capabilities into their applications. Search queries are sent with the API enabling you to get relevant news articles from a wide range of sources and categories. You can also customize news by category and region and also categorize searches by topics, such as Sports, Politics, World and many others.

Bing News Search API is a RESTful web service which means that you can easily call it from any programming language that can make HTTP requests and parse JSON.
 
Bing News Search can also be used to help an organisation track and manage public sentiment about a brand or company. It can also be used to help you to track competitors updates, releases and initiatives.
 
Bing Statistics provides analytics for Bing Entity Search. This means that you can easily check geographical location, call volume, market distribution, among others.
