hmmmm
first off I would suggest using jquery for the AJAX, it makes your life much much easier + it will probably help you debug the problem easier....if you can do that as step 1 and check into it and post your feedback, it would be great...I'm kinda in a rush now to troubleshoot the above issue, but I suggest to try jquery to start with as such:

<head>
<script type='text/javascript' src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js"></script>

then you can do an ajax function like this:
function getData(dataSource) {
  $.ajax({
	url: dataSource,
	type: 'GET',
	success: function(response, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {
                         yourcallbackfunction();
	},
	error: function(XMLHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown) {
               alert('could not get data from google');
	} 
  });


}

Open in new window


</head>


i think this wil make you find the problem easier
