How can I set up the API with BrightLocal?

Helen Barnes -


 We provide a suite of APIs that enable you to get valuable SEO-related data that you can use in your own reports, tools, and import into your CRM system. To learn which API service you need please see our API Overview for more information.  

To get your API key follow these steps: 

  1. Login to your account
  2. Click the dropdown icon in the top right-hand corner 

 3. Click the API Access option where you will find your API key. 


If you’ve just set this up then you will have a trial key. This will give you 1000 free test requests. If you want to use the Live Data APIs past this point you will need to contact our Enterprise team and we’ll draw up an agreement for a product key.

If you’re just using Account APIs then you can make unlimited requests on your trial API key - therefore no agreement is required. You will need an active SEO Pro subscription, however.


See our full API documentation for our APIs.

See our pricing plan for the Live Data APIs.
