Access to the API is available for customers on our SEO Pro plan only. Customers on our Single Business or MultiBiz plans do not have access to the API and will need to upgrade to a higher account to use the API.
API fees are in addition to your monthly package costs. API usage is charged on a per request basis and the costs vary depending on the API request made & the data returned (why? some API requests return small amounts of data while others return a lot)
Price range per API request = $0.01 – $0.50
Development API key
