YQL queries do not return any result today ?

All the YQL queries that I try to execute today return an empty result set:

<query xmlns:yahoo="http://www.yahooapis.com/v1/base.rng" yahoo:count="0" yahoo:created="2010-06-18T01:37:19Z" yahoo:lang="en-US">
</query><!-- total: 174 -->
<!-- yqlengine2.pipes.sp1.yahoo.com uncompressed/chunked Thu Jun 17 18:37:19 PDT 2010 -->

the exact same query returned some data yesterday, and I did not modified my code.
Did something change on the server?
Is there something wrong with my API Key ?

  • I re-created a new API key and now I get the expected results.

    maybe I was not refreshing the access token correctly ?
    could that explain why I got empty result ?
    wouldn't there be an error printed in the xml ?
  • It does seem like you should have been getting more useful data back from the service -- I'm not sure I can make too many better guesses from that response than you can. Probably worth checking:

    • Are you generating a new request token and having the user reauthenticate, or trying to refresh an existing access token? If the latter is failing, you might try the former again to see if it might have just been your refresh code having issues.
    • Does your original API key behave any differently today? There are rate limits on the YQL APIs, but I think they're way less than you'd be hitting just during development.

    EDIT: Heh, adding this reply again because I posted under the wrong ID.
