Displaying Google JSON

I've tried to do the extra credit exercise for the "Getting Data From Web" stage and I just can't find out why my code isn't working. Check the google JSON return: http://d.pr/i/RhGJ

NSURL *blogURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@"https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/search/web?v=1.0&q=Design"];
//I've put the results array, not sure if that responseData affects something
self.blogPosts = [dataDictionary objectForKey:@"results"];

and here to add it into my cell

cell.textLabel.text = [blogPost valueForKey:@"titleNoFormatting"];
cell.detailTextLabel.text = [blogPost valueForKey:@"content"];

Did anyone was able to do this exercise? Do you know what's the problem on my code?

The reason you are having this issue is because you are trying to access an object with an undefined key: results. You need to access the result array within the responseData object like so:

self.blogPosts = [[dataDictionary objectForKey:@"responseData"] objectForKey:@"results"];


self.blogPosts = dataDictionary[@"responseData"][@"results"];

i had the same problem and now it solved. thanks Thomas Anthony.
