Google API in ColdFusion
Posted on 2011-10-06
I have a form field that I'd like to pass to Goggle (or some search engine) and get the results back using CFHTTP so I can use the results on my page (not Googles).
Does anyone know how to do this? I see many posts on integrating Google with your site but it is indexing your static pages. This is not what i want.
To be specific, I need to seach through an Organization Name column based on what a user keys and determine if it's in our table or ask the user if it's new. I'd like to search with the native string and if nothing is found try the "Google suggestion".
When you misspell something in a Google Search, it come back with "Showing results for xxxxxxxxxxxx".
Is ther an API where I can pass a search argument and get that "Showing results for xxxxxxxxxxxx"?
Thanks in advance,
