    Hmmmm... it could be Google has blocked your server's IP or subnet for something unrelated.  Can you test if other search engines work or not?

    Do you have shell access to the server you have the script on?  If so, can you try to just ping www.googleapis.com to see if there is network connectivity between your server and Google's?

    We use a shared server hosted by web.com and don’t have shell access. Do you know of another server that we can use for testing? Everything was working fine 3 months ago. We did change ISPs from Qwest DSL to Comcast. Don’t know if this would affect anything.

    You might try just finding a free host that supports PHP. If it's a big hosting company, it could have been another customer on their servers doing something nasty that Google didn't like, and just blocked the whole subnet (scraping results for example).

    Our web hosting company said that the server is not blocking the Google API, but they wouldn’t try pinging googleapis.com from the server. I moved the PHP file to a different host and everything works fine. I also needed to set Google API usage limits to 10,000 queries per day and submit my credit card. Thanks for your help. ~m
