    I just created a Google AJAX search API key, but it doesn't seem to work with the keyword tracker. It takes the key when signing up, but it says "Invalid key: [...]" when I enter a keyword.
    SEMrush
    Would be nice if the developers of this could post a paragraph there on the tool site, since apparently Google has stopped issuing the kind of key it was working with over 2 years ago..

    Yes, you can use 1 API key for more then one account. It has been observed the most of the newly generated API key's wont work at all. If some one have the old API keys than u can use that. :)


    Thanks

    Sorry, I'm new to this... Can someone please tell me exactly where I need to go in order to get one of these keys?

    I just want it so I can use the Search Engine Keyword Tracker & Keyword Ranking Tool

    Paul Siragusa is my name. I too have the same issues when trying to obtain an API key. I get lost when I get to the page with all the different choices. Then all the links seem to take me to an informational page form Google that asks if I found what I needed or not. I scour for somewhere that says something to the effect or "Get your Google API Key here" or something of that nature. But I get lost and I don't know which one I need for keyword utilities on the web that require a Google API?. And i'm fairly saavy. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Google SOAP Search APIs are no longer available read about it here!

    http://code.google.com/apis/soapsearch/api_faq.html#price1

    1. Does it cost anything to use the Google SOAP Search API?

    No. Developers who are already using the SOAP Search API can continue to do so for free. However, please note that use of the API is limited to 1,000 queries per day to Google, and cannot be used for commercial applications. We are no longer issuing new API keys for the SOAP Search API.

    Curious if a solution has been found other than trying to buy old SOAP keys off ebay. I have tried signing up for the AJAX Search API Key using both my URL and digitalpoint.com and still get the error. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

    Google API is things what you can implant into your website to put features such as searching Youtube and doing other queries and things what involve Google and it's partnering sites. A API key is what you need to get by registering inorder to access these things. You need to put it into the code to activate it. You need to register for the different 'programs'.

    It depends on what API key you want from Google (e.g. Google Adsense API, Blogger Data API, Google Apps API, etc).

    You have to select the API key you want and create a Google account.
