Backlink API

Backlinks API

Backlink API introduction.

Use the SEO Review Tools Backlink APIs to generate backlink reports and valuable insights for your marketing team. Track the number of unique domains pointing to your site, monitor your Domain Authority and keep an eye on individual links that you’ve lost over time. The real-time backlink endpoints can be used to monitor your own domain or to keep track of your competitor. These insights can help you to learn from your competitors strategies and ultimately help you to grow the authority of your domain.

Backlink data that can be retrieved from the API include: Total unique backlinks, domain level spam score, domain authority, broken backlinks, referring IPs and much more.

3 Backlink API endpoints

  • The Backlink Summary API is designed to generate an overview of all relevant backlink statistics for a specific domain or URL.
  • The Backlink API endpoint is designed to uncover all the backlinks pointing to a specific URL or a full domain.
  • And finally we have the Lost backlink API that helps you to identify all backlinks that are lost or that are no longer available.
