Bing Search API call returning inconsistent results

    Question

  • I have an automated system to make a query every day using the following parameters.

    /Data.ashx/Bing/Search/Composite

    Sources='web'&Query='maktoob.com'&$format=Json

    My problem is when extract WebTotal from the returned json, it varies increasing and decreasing. If I run it now while I am writing this post I get a count of 19,000 but tomorrow it could be 12,000 and later 29,000 and so on. It doesn't show a trend.

    In addition, the number is so small when compared with the actual number from bing.com

    But I am more concerned about the randomness for now.

    Any insights?
