Is this possible with google API?

  • # February 3, 2010 at 1:54 am

    I was wondering if the following was possible.

    I want to have a number of links on my site, Football, Dancing, Swimming etc… That when I click on the link, a new age is loaded with all the google image results for that term? The page is still part of my site and not a google search page?

    Would it then be possible to refine that so I could then click or type a year, say 1999 and the results would reflect the change?

    Any ideas if this is possible and how I might go about it?

    Thanks

    Hmm….

    Well Google has a custom search that you could look at playing with. http://www.google.com/webelements/customsearch/ Not sure how it would work.

    There is also the basic Search API, http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxsearch/ then I guess you can just edit the CSS to customise it to your site design.

    You will have to check how customisable each are as I am not entirely sure!

    You could do it. You would need to implement Google’s search into your site. Then for the links, to Football for example, would all be queued up already.

    So for example, when you go to Google and do a search, you get a link like this http://www.google.ca/search?q=Football

    That’s how you’ll have to structure your links, of course replacing Google’s address with yours.

    Thanks for your replies. A bit far out of my skill level. But good to know it is somewhat possible.
