I have 20000-50000 entries in an excel file. One column contains the name of that company. Ideally, I would like search the name of that company, and whatever is the first result, I would select the URL associated with it. I am aware that Google (which my ideal choice) provides a AJAX Search API. However, it also has a 1000 search limit per registrant. Is there a way to get over 20000 searches without making 20 accounts with Google, or is there an alternative engine I could use?
Any alternative ways of approaching this problem are also welcome (i.e. WhoIs look-ups).
Google AJAX Search has no such limit of 1000. Yahoo Search does. Google AJAX Search limits you to getting 64 results per search but otherwise has no limit.
Note: The maximum number of results
pages is based on the type of
searcher. Local search supports 4
pages (or a maximum of 32 total
results) and the other searchers
(Blog, Book, Image, News, Patent,
Video, and Web) support 8 pages (for a
maximum total of 64 results).
