IbSearch Developer's API
IbSearch APIs of versions prior to 2015 have been removed and are no longer supported.
Note that access rate is limited based on your API key (or absense of one - in which case you are using public anonymous key).
You can get your own free API key by clicking on the button below. It will significantly increase your allowed access rate. No info is needed from you (not even e-mail if you feel secret).
If you have a key you can see request statistics, parse image query string, limit allowed sources for your key and do other useful things.
