How is findItemsByKeywords different from website search?

How is findItemsByKeywords different from website search? It seems on eBay.com the output from findItemsByKeywords is quite different from the website search. Is there a way to make it more similar? My aim is to look at my eBay ranking, and improve it. I get my ranking from the API call (something like #20), but can't it in the first 10 pages doing a websearch.

eBay has mentioned a few times that the results from the eBay website will differ from API results due to some degree of personalization effects, and other variabilities. IDK the details. Yes, this includes the Finding API. If you'd like some peer commentary on a specific search call, please post some sample code.
