If I provide multiple Google API keys, can you rotate them in my account (to take advantage of the Google monthly credit multiple times)?

We will not rotate API keys. This would be in violation of Google's API Terms of Service as it would be an obvious circumvention of the rules to take advantage of their system. If we were to do so, and Google decided to enact a policy enforcement, every one of our account holders would also be caught in Google's net!

Google can easily monitor API usage coming from our system. It would not be fun down the road for each API key holder to suddenly have to pay Google back for all the free account usage via their multiple API billing accounts. We will not take that risk, nor will we put our customers at risk either.
