Hi everyone,

last night I received the distressing news that the Bing Search API will soon stop being free.

The BootCaT corpus creation toolkit (http://bootcat.sslmit.unibo.it/) relies on it. Since we would like BootCaT to remain completely free, we are looking for a (free) alternative to Bing.

We're currently considering switching back to Google, which offers 100 free queries a day (not ideal, but it should be sufficient for creating a corpus).

Does anyone know of any other alternative?
