Bing Search Query Language Tips & Tricks

Bing has released a download documenting the Bing Query Language’ advanced operator syntax. Bing offers several ways to augment a basic Bing query. For the most part, we talk about using the Bing API to tailor requests. However, there is another tool that you can use in either an API request or a Bing box: Advanced Query Language.

Bing Query Language enables the incorporation of advanced operator syntax in requests sent to Bing Application Programming Interfaces. Advanced operator syntax is syntax that enables you to refine a query. This document provides you with the resources necessary to use this syntax.

Microsoft has just published an extensive list, of 38 examples, with descriptions and examples, of the operators, or syntactical units, that comprise this language.

For example, if you want to augment a query for “windows 7” so that the result pages are from obieosobalu.wordpress.com, you should enter:

windows 7 site:obieosobalu.wordpress.com
