  • I answer this question about twice a week on the forums. If you are getting empty results you are likely being rate limited. Rate limiting occurs when the frequency of request are such that your account could exceed the free terms of use. Rate limiting also occurs on all trial and basic (non-enterprise) keys when the service is under a lot of load. This is done to prioritize Enterprise (licensed/paying customer) requests. If you look at the header of the response you will see a flag there that indicates the request has been rate limited. This is documented on this page:
