Getting Started

Before implementing a new site, there are a few things that must happen in order to send queries and receive results.


Get the Access Key

To communicate with the InfoSpace Search API, you must sign each request with your access key. The Partnership Manager will provide you with an access key.

Get the CoBrand ID(s)

The Partnership Manager will issue one or more CoBrand IDs. You may have more than one so that you can segment reporting data (including revenue reporting). The site is required to send a CoBrand ID in the Base URL when submitting a query.

Get a Partner SubDomain

The Partnership Manager will issue you a Partner SubDomain to use in query requests. This is also passed in the Base URL when submitting a query.
