    My understanding is that Google discontinued the distribution of SOAP APIs, which is what you need to work with DigitalPoint (current ones work fine). However, I heard somewhere that DigitalPoint is working on a way to include AJAX APIs (which is still given out by Google).

    Hope that helps.

    I used my API key for DigitlPoints Keyword Ranking software. The key basically allows you up to 1000 queries at a time. This is something that DigitalPoint doenst want to deal with (cant handle all those queries themselves), and so passes the query limits to members themselves.

    Hope that makes sense.

    As for creating an account, you will have to find a key to work with it, otherwise your SOL for the moment. May want to try asking around for someone elses key (you will have to do the research to determine if thats legal, per their terms of service)

    If Google didn't require an API key, they would get deluged with millions of queries per day from some people. This is their way of limiting the activity to a reasonable number.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.
