Whitepage/Residential Search

  1. When i used http://api.sensis.com.au/ob-20110511/<env>/search?key=<key>&query=<query>&location=<location>[...]
    results are not the same as what whitepage.com.au returns.

    Is there a call to whitepage database instead of yellow page?

    Sorry, no. The API calls Yellow and White Business data only with no way to exclude or include just the one sort.

    Why are they not the same? because of the test environment?.

    The problem here is that the Horne N listing is a residential listing. SAPI only queries business listings, so it won't be returned.

    Hi Andrew

    Is there a SAPI capable of return residential/whitepage listing as well? Thanks

  6. Andrew Callaghan6 years ago

    No, sorry. I probably didn't make it clear in my answer yesterday. SAPI does not search any residential listings.

    Hi Andrew, Does SAPI now provides residential search with Name and Location? Found the above post saying "SAPI does not search any residential listings." , but it was posted on 2011 . IS there any update on it?

    Hi there Ann,

    SAPI doesn't search Australian residential listings, only businesses.

    Many thanks Andrew
