I was just curious if anyone knew of any documents explaining in detail the communication bewtween the client and server for the google api. Basically I'm trying to figure out how/what to send after issuing the POST method. How would I go about initiating the actual search? Thanks in advance.

Is there an actuall api? or do you just mean what do i send to do a search?

I just searched for "blah", and the page sent this, u just need to know the form fields normally, and send the value of the needed ones for your specific search.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=blah&btnG=Google+Search&meta=

alot of that could be broken away, to just

http://www.google.com/search?q=blah


Hope I might have helped, if not well stick a D cone on my head, flip me upside down and call me an icecream.

Yeah there's an actual API which uses the SOAP Protocol and returns XML results. I'm just trying to figure out how/what to send to the API to initiate the search.
