The area of Web Service Discovery 'WSD' is a primary area of research today. It has root importance for utilizing web services for personal or organizational needs. However the users of web service are yet facing a challenge to find the desired web service due to rapid growth of web services available on internet. There is a need of a strategy to locate web services with issues covering like performance, flexibility and reliability across multiple heterogeneous registries, which is a challenging task yet. Our proposed framework covers the limitations of current techniques; it actively obtains user required web service by crawling among different repositories. We have used Google Custom Search API for this purpose. The search is both interface based and functional level and there is flexibility to add more links to expand the needs of user request. We have performed some verification and validation checks to confirm the retrieved document is a web service and is currently available.
