Bing Search API Pricing Increase

Steve Bennett (Hacker News):

Today, Microsoft has announced that it will be raising the costs for developers utilising the Bing Search API starting from 1st May 2023, and the rise is quite substantial in a move that shows some similarities to what Twitter has recently announced.


You can find the full pricing model below. However, Microsoft has not gone out of its way to emphasise the differences between the previous and new models, which is not surprising given that some tiers have increased by 1000 percent.

This sounds like a problem for DuckDuckGo and other search engines that rely on Bing, unless they have special long-term deals.
