Google has discontinued registering for the soap api, however they do provide a new AJAX api in its place:

http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxsearch/

Here's some code I've played with...
// rsz=small    4
// rsz=large    8
// start=4      index based
 
string url = "http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/search/web?v=1.0&hl=en&rsz=large&start=0";
 
url += "&q=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("the search phrase");
 
url += "&key=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
 
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
request.Referer = "http://www.mydomain.com/"; // Google requests you do this
 
WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
 
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());
 
string jsonResponse = reader.ReadToEnd();
 
// then parse the jsonResponse 

Open in new window
