As of 2020, the API to access geolocated content is not available for non-commercial use anymore. We are currently in talks with Weibo to open a corporate account. We will update the community once this has been completed.

Only a small percentage of all social media (e.g. Tweets, flickr uploads) are geo-tagged. According to recent studies, <1% use precise latitude and longitude. Therefore, you almost never find results in remote areas. Try changing the search radius to a major city and check again.
