My search in url with BOSS v2 returns fewer results than I expected
I'm happily using the BOSS v2 API to return results from basic searches. However, my query relates to using the API to search in urls using the optional argument url.
When I search for particular urls via (1) the web page at yahoo.com, I get over 30 million results. However, when I perform what I think is an identical search using (2) the API, I get just 1 result.
Here are details of the two searches I performed:
1. Web page at yahoo.com: inurl: barack obama
2. API url: http://yboss.yahooapis.com/ysearch/web?format=json&oauth_consumer_key=<my consumer key>&oauth_nonce=<nonce>&oauth_signature=<signature>&oauth_signature_method=<method>&oauth_timestamp=<timestamp>&oauth_version=1.0&q=&url=barack%20obama (this just returns http://www.daylife.com/topic/Barack_Obama)
Please could you tell me:
If the two search methods outlined above are expected to be equivalent?
If the answer to the above question is no, how can I retrieve results from the API which are similar to the results returned from the web page at yahoo.com?
