    Since Google has stopped giving new keys for the SOAP API can we use
    the AJAX search API key instead?
    http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxsearch/
    SEMrush
    And if so, it might be a good idea to EXPLAIN that people who want to use the keyword tracker!
    * frustrated* (but thankful for your services)

    thanks in advance

    They issue them, the Ajax type, but they don't seem to work with Keyword tracker..

    The request returned the following error:
    Exception from service object: Invalid authorization key: *Key Edited OUT*

    I'm frustrated myself that they took it off. Seems like the AJAX Search API is meant to deprecate it.

    A Google SOAP Search API Key is for websites to access their Search API and make requests. Without one you can't use it.

    What's the update here, is there a way for me to get the tool working or am I screwed because I don't have a SOAP API?

    I used to have one but I lost it :(

    Do you still have the account which you used to get the SOAP API key? If yes then check for an email from with a subject of Your Google Web APIs License Key. I recently got those details from a friend which helped me to find my key. Lets see if you can find yours.

    Hello everybody,

    I'm new to this forum, as to SEO in general. I've been pointed to this tool from the book. I never used this Keyword Tracker, and to my understanding I'm not going to. Am I right?

    Ahh, and no, I don't have that mystic Google API key.

    Hello,

    I just plunged into this keyword tracking world today. I've found the tool, waded through the whole acquiring an API key "thing" and have ended up receiving the "Invalid authorization key" error mentioned in this thread.

    The API I now have is an AJAX API (whatever that is). From what I've read here on the forum though, this type of API may not be supported by the keyword tracking tool.

    I'm logged into the tool and have added a couple of keywords, but doubt there will be any tracking as long as I'm getting this error.

    Where do I go from here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Okay, just discovered an AJAX API distinction at the Google code site. There is an AJAX Feed API and an AJAX Search API. The first place I found to get an API turns out to be a "feed" type. It is for downloading ATOM and RSS feeds and doesn't sound like what I need for the keyword tracking tool. The AJAX Search API is for adding search functionality ("powered by Google" search field) to my site, which doesn't sound like what I need for the tracking tool either. I'm really stuck now.

    Hope to hear from someone soon.

    Thanks.

    For all those looking for an API key, PM me. I have a bunch of them that I'm giving away for pretty cheap.

    Google has stopped issuing new SOAP API keys which is required to use DP's keyword tracker tool.

    If you have not one then you are out of luck... at least for now.

    Google has stopped issuing the API keys last year, and it is unlikely they will issue anymore keys. Kind of wished I signed up for it when I had the chance.

    (2 years later, and this thread still receives replies. :) )

    Who knows? I think they stopped issuing new keys because of too many spammy requests...
