Better documentation for pagination and returned result in relation with pagination.
I am using bing cognitive search, but the pagination is not working properly; for example I am posting this to bing API:
but it is not returning 5 results; it returns 9 instead. Also the results are duplicated on page next pages.
If I change count to 9 and accordingly the offset, then it returns 17 results. Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong? How should I do a proper call and pagination when calling bing cognitive search?
Is there some documentation regarding this problem?
offset and count parameters are only applicable to web answer. So, you may get 5 websites and some images, news, videos. offset and count params are not applicable to any other answer type.
