Search Query API
The Search API allows you to query the PhilipppineCompanies.com search engine and display the results in your website. The API uses the GET method to access the search engine and returns the results in RSS format which can then be easily parsed for display in your site.
For example, if you want to search for hotels located in Boracay:http://www.philippinecompanies.com/searchapi.php?what=hotels&where=boracay
You can generate some example links by using the form below:

Proximity Search API
This API performs a search based on geographic proximity to a pair of latitude and longitude values. This is particularly useful for people developing mobile applications. Similar to the standard Search API, variables are sent via GET method and the server response is formatted in RSS.
