Can someome tell me if there is an API to get search results form Google? I went through the Google Search APIs, but could not find anything that will let me get search results (the custom search api is limited to searching few sites only I think).

I have heard some tools on the web use a generic search api. Is there any such API?

If you're willing to pay for it you can get XML results from Google Site Search. –  pritaeas Jan 24 '11 at 14:09

I would think Google's search API is about as generic as you can get. You can also use Bing's Search API. Or if you want something more exotic and possibly better, check out Duck Duck Go's search API. Duck Duck Go I believe uses Google's API as well as a number of other one's so using that API and doing some research into what it does may be the most help.
