Google Google has quietly axed the web services API to its eponymous search engine. The stealth move was made without any announcement, but visitors to the page now receive a blunt message, backdated to 5 December, advising them that the SOAP API is no longer supported.

Parsing html results - done that with several sites. The trouble is, when such site knows it, and changes the output intentionally :-)

I use REBOL for the task, it is cool and simple to parse results with it ..., but of course and imo - it is a pity API is removed ...

I don't know much about REBOL. I use Java, Python or Groovy. My approach is to create a general class for parsing, and subclass for the particular version of the site output.
