Google APIs of Search Related Products and Applications

Updated on September 18, 2011

In this article, I'm will publish list and details about all those Google products, services and APIs which fall in this category "Google Search APIs and related Products". Google (Google Search Engine) is the leader in this field and he should be because he dedicated all his life from the beginning continuously in improving and adding new features. As per my own Knowledge, the main and foremost reason behind the rise in popularity of internet is Google itself who grouped the whole internet into single one by allowing internet users to search nearly every website in this big network.

After capturing the topmost position, Google decided to help other developers and website owners by allowing them to use their 'search engine' related products and services which clients can insert into their application and websites. So, here I'm presenting that only.
