Help! Google API and Spiders

Hi,

I'm a newbie in this area so pardon me if my question is very silly.

I'm writing a program using Visual Basic 6.0, which also requires me to write a spider to search Google and then returns to my program the links which it crawled. Now, my question is...do I need to use the Google API with my spider?? If so, how? I downloaded the Google API and they have it in Java and VB.Net only...how can I go about it to work with my VB program?? Would it be possible at all??

I really need detailed explanation on this...and if anyone could help me out please. I urgently need help. Thanks!!

    You can create a Google search URL yourself like this:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=visual+basic+sucks

    No API needed.

    There is a .NET utility that creates a COM wrapper around a .NET component, so that the component can be used in VB6 for instance. However, is it worth the trouble?

    : Can you please give me some code examples on how to create/use a Google search URL? This is because my program needs to read some strings and then take a few strings at a time to search in Google.
    Thanks a lot!! :)

    Not required to use Google API.
    You can extract using INET control and use your own methos to extract links or use RegEx.

    If you need more info contact me.
