try {
var response = UrlFetchApp.fetch(url , options);
var doc = Xml.parse(response.getContentText(),true); // parse content as xml
if ( != undefined ){ // if item is defined get link
// Note using item instead of because urls appear to be slipping out of schema
var res =^\s+|\s+$/g, '');
cache.put(url, res, 3600); // put result in cache for next time
return res;
