    By "page content", you mean strings of text? By strings of text, you mean search queries? Then yes, there is a Google search API, at http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxsearch/, but it's a client-side API.

    There is no server-side API available for searching Google.

    Yes, content of the page. For ex. if I want to know that whether the content of the T&C page of my site has been copied or not, then is there any API to know that?

    Take a sentence of the page, copy it, paste it into Google with quotes around it, and search. That'll give you a good idea.

    But there's no API from Google that will let you do this in a server application automatically. Google doesn't want those kinds of applications built on its search engine.

    Copyscape is a company that provides what you're asking about as a service.
