you're not allowed to download the json data directly from your page
you need to use a server side proxy to capture the data for you and send it back to your page

yes, you can't download the content from your browser that's why you get nothing
Ajax don't allow you to download data from another server, domain or using a different port

I think you misunderstood the way your current page work saying your javascript run on your server as it's embed in an HTML page
More infos here :
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Same_origin_policy_for_JavaScript

That mean your page CAN'T do an AJAX call to Google API to request data
