This question already has an answer here:

I am running a lot of tests and have started to get 403 errors.

I am using a key and certainly have not exceeded my quota.

Am I running foul of some yet unmentioned throttling threshold and if so, what measures should I emplace in order to not be surprised by 403s etc?

    any json returns? what about http response headers? how many requests did you make per minute? – YOU May 31 '10 at 6:36
  • There should be a JSON response (with some additional information) if the API is cutting you off, are you seeing anything like that? – Kevin Montrose May 31 '10 at 6:38
  • Key behavior has changed to handle the "multiple app" scenario, so alternating between Key and No Key shouldn't be an issue. – Kevin Montrose May 31 '10 at 6:57
  • @kev - wasn't looking. am now. will update with observations. – Sky Sanders May 31 '10 at 7:29
  • Never updated with the promised observations and not reproducible. Probably hasn't been an issue for years. – Brock Adams Nov 28 '16 at 23:02
