    True.  The Google SOAP API disappeared years ago.  The AJAX
search widget was very restrictive, and is now on end of life
(no new users).  "Google Custom Search" only lets you search
specific sites.

    The Bing API comes with limitations on what you can do with
the results.

    The Yahoo search API went away, replaced by the Yahoo BOSS
API. Then that was replaced by a pay-per-search interface.

    Bleeko has an API, but you have to ask to use it.
