Backlinks API Errors

 
By calling this endpoint you will receive information about the Backlinks API tasks that returned an error within the past 24 hours.

Note that if a certain task does not appear on the list, this means the task did not respond with an error or has not been completed yet.

Instead of ‘login’ and ‘password’ use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard

<?php
// You can download this file from here https://cdn.dataforseo.com/v3/examples/php/php_RestClient.zip
require('RestClient.php');
$api_url = 'https://api.dataforseo.com/';
// Instead of 'login' and 'password' use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard
$client = new RestClient($api_url, null, 'login', 'password');
$post_array = array();
// simple way to get a result
$post_array[] = array(
   "limit" => 10,
   "offset" => 0,
   "filtered_function" => "backlinks/content_duplicates"
);
try {
   // POST /v3/backlinks/errors
   // the full list of possible parameters is available in documentation
   $result = $client->post('/v3/backlinks/errors', $post_array);
   print_r($result);
   // do something with post result
} catch (RestClientException $e) {
   echo "n";
   print "HTTP code: {$e->getHttpCode()}n";
   print "Error code: {$e->getCode()}n";
   print "Message: {$e->getMessage()}n";
   print  $e->getTraceAsString();
   echo "n";
}
$client = null;
?>

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

All POST data should be sent in JSON format (UTF-8 encoding). The task setting is done using the POST method. When setting a task, you should send all task parameters in the task array of the generic POST array.

Description of the fields for sending a request:

Field name Type Description
limit integer the maximum number of returned tasks that responded with an error
optional field
default value: 1000
maximum value: 1000
offset integer offset in the results array of returned tasks
optional field
default value: 0
if you specify the 10 value, the first ten tasks in the results array will be omitted and the data will be provided for the successive tasks
filtered_function string return tasks with a certain function
use this field to obtain a list of tasks that returned an error filtered by a certain function
you can filter the results by the values you receive in the function fields of the API response
i.e., once you receive unfiltered results, you can call this API again to filter them by function
example: backlinks/live
