relevant keywords with google api

Posted on 2006-05-18
Last Modified: 2013-11-18
hello everyone, I have a small question to make.
I have developed a small web searching application based on Google API. What I would like to provide to users is a set of relevant keywords to the search performed. For example if they perform a search about Chelsea through the keyword "Chelsea", the application will provide, in addition to the results, a set of relevant keywords such as "fc", "clinton", "football" and so on.
is this possible with Google API? if not, is there any alternative solution?
thanks in advance

    You are trying to duplicate or better the google search engine????  You have to be kidding yourself, you cant do better than google technology.  Why not say exactly what you are trying to do, then maybe I can help??

    I am not trying to duplicate Google technnology at all! I am not trying to do anthing commercial! It's just an experiment.
    I just want to add to my application (which uses the Google API) as additional feature, which is quite common in many search engines, such as Kartoo. Basically when users perform a query operation the application retrieve the results. In addition the application should retrieve a set of words relevant to the word (or words)  used by users for searching. It's not anything complex. What I wanted to know was if Google API supported this type of function (I don't think so) and if not, if there would be any alternative.
    Have a look at this:
    Hope I gave you a better idea

    Yes it is part of their API, and here are a series of links to how you can use this --

    The last two should help you home in on how to add it to your site ("application"), dont know what language you are using.

    Also, the link you gave does not give dictionary equivalents.  This site does, and I think that it is better --

    Anyone can just add suffixes to an existing word, it is much better to provide synonyms.
