Google custom search recent queries

Google custom search recent queries

Hello, I wonder if it’s possible to use the Google API to get the list of the recent queries as done here:

…or if I will need to store them myself in a DB?

I believe the expectation is to use an external service for the images (like Google search), but I’ve heard Google itself is a tricky one to implement.

I used Bing and the API was very easy to work with. I tried Imgur first, but it didn’t return the info I wanted.

I think it’s the first time I have ever intentionally used Bing for anything!

I’ve already implemented it with the Google Cusotm Search, the search bit is done and dusted… but I wonder how to implement the “recent queries” thing… I don’t want to waste time with Mongo if the API return that by itself :slight_smile:

How is it with Bing? Do you get the history of recent queries via API or you maintained that in a DB?

Oh, I understand. Nah, I just used mongo :slight_smile:
