First of all I highly research on the web and this site the questions I ask before ever resorting to posting a question here. So I have spent weeks trying to find the answer to this with little luck.
On these Item Detail pages I want to add a news box that has searched various sites dedicated to the MMORPG and display links to blog articles and forum posts only about the specific item that the page is about. For example, if someone is interest in a Golden Sword, my site's page about Golden Swords will go out and look at several other sites and display five links to articles/posts only about Golden Swords. No search box is required or wanted.
So I would like to use php to check a search engine like google and find these links and then display them on the item's page. I know google has an api for something like this And maybe that is the route I will have to go. But my research of that api has been less than promising. And I have no problem with Google branding. But I do not want a search box at all. I only want to display the five search results specific to the item on the page (and any required branding). I only want the results. The page the search is coming from is the search query already.
You can see an example of an item details page at http://www.grandexch...ragon%20leather. In this case I want to put a news box at the bottom of the page that links to five articles/posts about Red Dragon Leather.

Ajax request to the google API should do the trick i mean unless you built some kind of web crawler to crawl the sites and build a sitemap then use ajax to quick refrence it for matching keywords and links
