I want to know if there are any rate limits for api searches currently. If there are any, i would like to abide by the limits and not get blocked.

Hi. There's no publicly-announced limit for API searches, rather most normal uses of the API should be fine and not detected as botnets, etc. There's a bit more information on this at the bottom of this page: https://duckduckgo.com/api

However, if you're concerned that you may be detected as such, feel free to get in touch to make sure you don't have problems: bd@duckduckgo.com.
