Server error with keyword tracking

Discussion in 'Keyword Tracker' started by lzr, May 21, 2014.

    Since recently when I try to use the tracking nothing is updated. When I manually click on any keyword I see "Unexpected server error" with 403 code.
    I did doublecheck that your IP 216.9.35.59 is not blocked in my .htaccess.
    What could be the issue?

    Please try looking at your Apache error logs for more details on the 403. It is likely that there is other invalid syntax in your .htaccess file.

    Did you set IP restrictions on your server key within your Google API Console?

    Check under APIs & Auth -> Credentials -> Edit Allowed IPs (for server applications)

    Shawn,
    Originally I did not. Now when you asked, I added both your and mine IPs in Edit Allowed IPs, and I do have Custom Search API turned ON. Still 403.

    I did look in error log- it has none, but it provides only 300 errors. My htaccess is generated automatically by Gator- I only added there a few IPs of spammers.

    Maybe try generating a new key? Maybe Google just internally disabled your server key or something.

    I just moved my tracker_script to a different domain served by GoDaddy and now it works fine. I guess something in general Host Gator php settings prevented the access. Thank you.
