Having trouble getting GIF images, very few results (1-5 pictures of "cats") after selecting all image platforms.

    well most images are not in gif format thats for sure. If you have however some kind of engine that delivers gif'S that do not show up in results, I can try to debug it.

    Would it not make sense to use Google/Yandex to pull images directly from search engines & just let your users sort out the inconsistencies ? (There will be very few if any)

    Lots of relevant results.

    Additionally all links on first page of Yandex are full of sites loaded with cat gifs.

    Same thing applies to other big search engines.

    you have a lot search sources, including yandex.
  • But I am having trouble fetching something as simple as cat gifs.

    Simple search for "cat gifs" in Yandex yields a lot of results which can be extracted quite easily. I'm having issues getting same effect with your software.

    Try it yourself, maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    yandex often banns your ip...i have debugged this and for me it is banning after 1st page i guess :/
