Keep in Mind
- Please wait at least one second between HTTP queries, or you are likely to get automatically throttled. If you are releasing a library to access the API, you must do this.
- Please watch for 500 or 999 errors and back-off appropriately. It means that you have been throttled.
- Please set your User-Agent to something identifiable. The default identifiers like
lwp-perletc tend to get banned from time to time.
- If you are releasing software or a service for other people to use, your software or service must not add any links without a user’s explicit direction. Likewise, you must not modify any urls except under the user’s explicit direction.
- API calls of Objects returns as an Xml object.
