Day 28: UI Testing - Error code 429 - Quota exceeded

I’m trying to complete my Day 28 challenge and stuck on the lighthouse test

Is there a way around this or am I doing something wrong?

Hi @tbarnes2021

It looks like you hit a limit for the API endpoint. Most likely in place (in my opinion) to stop DDoS attacks etc.

I don’t know much about the Google API you are using but I would guess either you hit it too many times, or there’s a load of people hitting the same API causing it to reach the limits.

I think the easiest option is probably just to try again another day.

Thanks @w4dd325 for the response!

I got it resolved by testing a different URL - OR - it might have been just allowing x amount of time to pass before the retry. Either way I got past it :slight_smile:
