HOW TO use Bing Search v5 API with JavaScript

Taking off from the single basic JavaScript sample on the newly minted version 5 of Bing Search API, I put together a couple of samples of my own. You'll have to sign-up for a free key from Microsoft Cognitive Services to replace in the code samples to try them & also experiment with all the other APIs that are available

Bing Search API gets not just web search results but also image, news, & videos results for a given query and allows up to 1,000 free transactions per month across all Bing Search APIs

Google Custom Search API has a few additional steps & provides 100 search queries per day for free
