How to Get Geocoding Search Results

public static XElement GetGeocodingSearchResults(string address) {
            // Use the Google Geocoding service to get information about the user-entered address
            // See for more info...
            var url = String.Format("{0}&sensor=false", HttpContext.Current.Server.UrlEncode(address));

            // Load the XML into an XElement object (whee, LINQ to XML!)
            var results = XElement.Load(url);

            // Check the status
            var status = results.Element("status").Value;
            if (status != "OK" && status != "ZERO_RESULTS")
                // Whoops, something else was wrong with the request...
                throw new ApplicationException("There was an error with Google's Geocoding Service: " + status);

            return results;
