I gave the search text as '259 N MIDDLETOWN RD' and state as 'ny' and then did a search in the URL http://www.whitepages.com/search/Replay?lower=21&search_id=70051430206049638941&search_type=reverseaddress
It returned 31 matches.
I tried the same using http://api.whitepages.com/reverse_address/1.0/?street=259%20N%20MIDDLETOWN%20RD;state=ny;api_key=MY_API_KEY
It returned 28 matches.
Can anyone tell me why there is a difference in the match count?

These listings are WhitePages member listings which are only available via our website.

As it seems member listings are a new feature - still in beta? - is there a possibility of having white pages API return them in the future? Are those listings confirmed in some way to avoid spam/deception? IE: entering a code in your phone after White Pages calls you.
As an alternative, is there a possibility for returning a link to whitepages.com, through the XML results, to show ONLY the member listings that would have shown up otherwise?
I believe member listings should now be showing up in your API queries. Some details will require following the viewdetails link in order to send txt messages or email for those members who have masked their listing.
I'm seeing them when I run a query.

API Request: http://api.whitepages.com/reverse_address/1.0/?house=108;street=Luxorwind%20Dr;zip=27529;city=Garner;state=NC;outputtype=JSON --- 0 Results
A request through the website does return information.
This problem can also be seen by searching by name for Reginald Jackson in Garner, NC. An API call with that information doesn't return any results at 108 Luxorwind Dr.
However performing an identical search via the website returns the property at 108 Luxorwind Dr.
Have encountered this issue multiple times. I used this to clearly document the occurrence.
