can i reorder live web results RRS feed

  • Question

  • i found this lines in live tos
    modify, filter, obscure, or replace the text, images, or other content of Live Search 
    results, including by changing the order in which Live Search results
    appear (but this limitation will not apply to Live Search results of type "Web"),
    intermixing Live Search results with search results from other sources, or intermixing
    with Live Search results any other content so that the other content appears to be
    part of Live Search results;
    what i understand from it "only web results can be reordered and other source(google or yahoo) results can be mixed with it but other results shouldn't be appears as it is also from live search results. any one from the msn please guide me about this thing

  • There are two cases:

     

    1) Any call where sources=web

     

    in this case, you can reorder the results and intersperse other results from other sources provided that you clearly identify which results come from Live

     

    2) Any call where sources is other than web (e.g. news, phonebook, images, etc)

     

    in this case you cannot reorder or interleave other results with what is returned.
