Chapter 9. Programming Google > Using Your Google API Key

9.4. Using Your Google API Key

Every time you send a request to the Google server in a program, you have to send your key along with it. Google checks the key and determines whether it's valid and you're still within your daily 1,000 query limit; if so, Google processes the request.

All the programs in this book, regardless of language and platform, provide a place to plug in your key. The key itself is just a string of random-looking characters (e.g., 12BuCK13mY5h0E/34KN0cK@ttH3Do0R).
