We are in development phase of Instapress (a software which will work like Wordpress with enhanced features and utilities). I am working on Number of pages indexed for a particular domain through Yahoo API("http://boss.yahooapis.com/ysearch/web/v1/site:www.example.com). If I compare the number of results through API and direct interface, then I see a big difference between the results.
For example, if we consider "site:www.instablogs.com"
Results via Yahoo API-26 Results via Yahoo Interface-20
and for "site:www.bornrich.org&"
Results via Yahoo API-35,526 Results via Yahoo Interface-43,603
The difference between these two is much more than consideration. So please help me if I am missing something or anything needs to be added. Please let me know ASAP.
