We have experienced some problems with our Live Search when we have a lot of users on our site(15.000) . The web service stop returning results... but works fine when theres less useres. We have been told by our contact in microsoft that is no limit of usage.

Is there a search limit or other restrictions that could be causing these problems

Yes there are usage limits on the Live Search Web service. The service is restricted at 25k queries / day and throttled at 10 queries / second. However, these numbers are subject to change at any time so please refer to our terms of use for the most up to date information: http://dev.live.com/terms/search.aspx

Is the 25kqueries/day limitation per APPID or you are looking at the ip of the server the request its coming from and then blocking the request. We are expecting about 100,000 users on our portal by the end of 2008. We will surely overshoot the 10 queries/second throttle rate. Please guide us.

Moderator, the link that shows us the most up-to-date limits on queries doesnt have any of that information.

What's up
