Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a query to find the number of questions tagged from 2012-08-01 to 2013-08-01. Running this using both /questions and /search produces different results:

https://api.stackexchange.com/2.1/questions?todate=1387929600&order=desc&sort=activity&tagged=java&site=stackoverflow&filter=!--btTJ2LtJpU

{"total":511058,"quota_remaining":245,"quota_max":300,"has_more":false}

https://api.stackexchange.com/2.1/search?todate=1387929600&order=desc&sort=activity&tagged=java&site=stackoverflow&filter=!--btTJ2LtJpU

{"total":540960,"quota_remaining":246,"quota_max":300,"has_more":false}

Both queries are searching for the same questions over the same time interval; why do the results apparently differ?

A quick glance shows several differences between the result sets, Possibly multiple bugs. Don't have time to try and guess what's going on right now. –  Brock Adams Dec 25 '13 at 20:28
    
is that two queries are supposed to give same result ? –  Sarath Saleem Jan 9 at 6:56
