There are a few things that could provide different results, for one thing, the Bing search Toolkit is set to use the "Web" Source Type parameter:

to edit the source types used in search, you can edit the webassist/bing/bing_search_tk.js file.

in the following line:

var url = ''+Bing_appID+'&Version=2.2&Sources=Web&Query='+encodeURIComponent(query)+( (Bing_sites) ? '+site:'+encodeURIComponent(Bing_sites) : "" )+'&Web.Count='+Bing_page_size+'&Web.Offset='+start+'&JsonType=callback&JsonCallback=showBingResults';

this piece:

sets the source type to Web only. you can set it to use multiple source types by adding a plus sign between them:

there are other optional parameters that can added to the querystring like the Market parameter:

as for hit highlighting, that can be added by making the following changes in the webassist/bing/bing_search_tk.js file

1) add the &Options=EnableHighlighting querystring to the url variable:

var url = ''+Bing_appID+'&Version=2.2&Sources=Web+News&Query='+encodeURIComponent(query)+( (Bing_sites) ? '+site:'+encodeURIComponent(Bing_sites) : "" )+'&Web.Count='+Bing_page_size+'&Web.Offset='+start+'&JsonType=callback&JsonCallback=showBingResults&Options=EnableHighlighting';

2) add the following function at the very end:

function ReplaceHighlightingCharacters(text, beginStr, endStr)
// Replace all occurrences of U+E000 (begin highlighting) with
// beginStr. Replace all occurrences of U+E001 (end highlighting)
// with endStr.
var regexBegin = new RegExp("\uE000", "g");
var regexEnd = new RegExp("\uE001", "g");

return text.replace(regexBegin, beginStr).replace(regexEnd, endStr);

3) find the following line:

resultsTitle.innerHTML = '<a href="' + results[i].Url + '">' + results[i].Title + '</a>';

and change it to:

resultsTitle.innerHTML = '<a href="' + results[i].Url + '">' + ReplaceHighlightingCharacters(results[i].Title, "<strong>", "</strong>") + '</a>';

4) find this line:

resultsDesc.innerHTML = results[i].Description;

and change it to:

resultsDesc.innerHTML = ReplaceHighlightingCharacters(results[i].Description, "<strong>", "</strong>");
