Site Searching with SOAP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to setup the following with SOAP -->
    request.query = "site:schoolsuccessonline.com school success"

    The above fails with 0 results.  However the same query on search.live.com returns 109 results.

    If I replace the domain with Microsoft.com -->
    request.query = "site:microsoft.com school success"

    The above returns 1730 results.  The same query on search.live.com returns 67,100 results.

    Why does the SOAP VB code not work correctly?  Is it because the sourceType is set to Web?  What types should I be searching?  Or if this is not the issue anyone have any great ideas?

  • Hey there

    You dont happen to have the web.filetype set to "doc" do you?
    If yes, removing that will give you some 100 odd results through the API as well.

  • Ah, that did the trick.  I must have looked over that 10 times.  Thanks!
