  1. This looks interesting, what about a jsonp format? can’t do to much with json on the client side due to same origin restrictions

  2. As far as I know JSONP is much more robust (as it poses no restrictions on IE7 and earlier). To support JSONP you just need to wrap the JSON response that you return today with a callback call, so instead of returning

    {.. JSON HERE ..}

    you return

    callback({..JSON HERE ..})

    it allows the request to be served in a tag, which makes it universally available to all known browsers.

    anyway, great product …

  3. are there any limitations for using Faroo’s API & API in China ? how many queries each month for each website/app? can we use Faroo’s API with PHP for JSON parsing mechanism? Great to see free Bing’s alternative, a life savior for developers like us.

  4. are there any limitations for Faroo’s API & API in China ? how many queries each month for each website/app, is it unlimited queries? can we use Faroo’s API with PHP for JSON parsing mechanism? when will you support queries like Google Power User with Query Operators for different filetype queries (i.e .pdf, ppt, doc, xls)?

    Great to see free Bing’s alternative, a life savior for developers like us. and sorry for the double posts 🙂

  5. Hi all,
    I would like to ask you two things:
    1) what is the maximum number of results I can get per page
    2) Can I get the relevance score of each result?

    Thank you in advance.

  6. 1. The maximum number of results per page is 100.
    2. There is no public relevance score property available. The order of results is a relevance indicator though.

  7. Hi all,

    I am really glad that faroo has provided such a useful api for developers.

    I am facing an issue, the multiple word search fetches very less result or sometime zero.

    DO i have to add any special characters like ‘and’ ‘or’ in between the multiple words for an efficient search.?

    Thanks In Advance.
