Discrepancies between Site Explorer and Site Explorer Service API

I have an issue with the Yahoo "SiteExplorerService" API.

The following link shows the Yahoo Site Explorer inlinks information for "http://buildachurchwebsite.com." I am also engaging the "except from this domain" filter.
It shows about 8,200 results (differs from day to day)

The following link shows the same information from the Yahoo Site Explorer API. I am also using the "omit_inlinks" parameter.
It shows about 250 results.

Playing around with the optional parameters changes the numbers slightly, but the massive difference between them remains. Can anyone explain this discrepancy, or suggest a different/better way of composing an API query to get results comparable to the ones shown with the browser-based Yahoo Site Explorer?

Thanks in advance.
