If you're an AgencyAnalytics user and would like to view some of your BrightLocal report data inside your account, you can do this by linking your two accounts.
Link accounts using your BrightLocal API Key
The process of linking your accounts is easy using your BrightLocal API Key and API Secret.
Depending on your BrightLocal account type (see below for more details), you might automatically be provided with with an API key, which can be found in the 'API Access' section of the Account area in the BrightLocal dashboard.
Which customer account types have API Access?
Not all customer account types have an API Key and API Secret in their BrightLocal account.
SEO Pro or Multi Business Plan:
If you have subscribed to either our SEO Pro or Multi Business plan, then you do have access to the API as part of your plan.
Citation Builder only:
If you are a 'Citation Builder only' customer, then you do have access to the API as part of your plan.
Single Business Plan:
If you have subscribed to our Single Business plan, you do not have access to the API as part of your plan. You'll need to upgrade to either our SEO Pro or Multi-Business plans.
Select 'API Access' from the dropdown menu (shown above within the red box). Here, you will find the two pieces of information that you need to connect your account to AgencyAnalytics:
- API Key
- API Secret
These are both highlighted in the following example:
Adding your API Key and API Secret to AgencyAnalytics
Once you've located your API Key and API Secret, you need to copy and paste this information into your AgencyAnalytics account.
Which BrightLocal Report data can I see in AgencyAnalytics?
You can pull in and see your all data for the following report types in AgencyAnalytics:
- Citation Tracker
- Citation Builder
- Reputation Manager
All data relating to your Key Citations, Live Citations and Pending Citations is viewable, but you won't see data relating to Competitor Citations.
You can view all your Citation Builder campaign data for each campaign you've created in BrightLocal.
At present, you are unable to do either of the following from within AgencyAnalytics:
- Buy additional citations
- Buy additional Citation Builder campaigns
Here, all of your existing review data — across all the review sites that BrightLocal monitors for each of your Reputation Manager reports, can be viewed.
You are currently not able to do either of the following:
- Reply to reviews via AgencyAnalytics
- Set up or view the results of Get Reviews campaigns
Trial API Key vs Live API Key
For the purposes of connecting to AgencyAnalytics and seeing your report data in that platform, you can do this with both a Trial API key or a Live API key.
Despite trial API keys having a limit of 1,000 free API requests, this does not apply to the specific API endpoints that are used to import your report data into AgencyAnalytics.
