MSN Live Search python API access

Here is a little code snippet that will allow your python script to access MSN Search.

I’m posting it here in hope that google picks it up and that next person who wants to just google it won’t have to start from scratch.

(I’m not sure how to post it to retain formatting, but since it’s a simple script anyway it doesn’t matter much)

from SOAPpy import WSDL

wsdl_url = ''
server = WSDL.Proxy(wsdl_url)

params = {'AppID': '***!!!YOUR_API_KEY_HERE!!!***',
'Query': query,
'CultureInfo': 'en-US',
'SafeSearch': 'Off',
'Requests': {
'Source': 'Web',
'Offset': 0,
'Count': 10,
'ResultFields': 'All',

server_results = server.Search(Request=params)
results = server_results.Responses[0].Results[0]

return results
