Results different to Bing web site

I've been working some more with the Bing Search Toolkit and have noticed that when I do a search for the same keyword using www.bing.com I can get different results. i.e. search on my site returns 1 result, search on Bing returns 3 results. Why would this be?

I also see that the results returned on bing.com have the search keyword highlighted in bold within then result description text and the description text that is shown uses a section of text that is near my search term on the page. How do I get the same functionality with the Bing Search Toolkit?

Thanks.

I've been doing some more searches and comparing the WA Bing Search Toolkit results with that of the Bing web site and they are VERY different. The WA BST results are less relevant, which means that there seems to be very little point in using this extension.

Have I perhaps done something wrong when setting up the extension? Why would the results be so different? Has Bing set-up their API so that the results are worse than using their web site? I can't imagine they have.

Have Bing perhaps changed the API and the WA code needs to be updated?
