Access through YQL is limited to 10,000 signed calls per hour
I am currently using Flickr's direct API and I am unfamiliar with YQL. I have just signed up with YQL and it redirects me to Flickr's dev site to obtain a key. BUT that is the key I am already using with a 3600/hr limit. If I used the same Flickr API key that I am currently using with Flickr's direct API, will it magically have a 10,000 call limit via YQL? Alternatively, is there a way to increase my limit while using the direct flickr API?
Why do the two APIs to the same service have different limits?
The lowest limit will be hit first, so 3600. I replied to your email too. Flickr does have commercial licenses available for an increased rate limit. You'll need to apply for those directly from Flickr.
