Content Analysis – Category Trends API


This endpoint will provide you with data on all citations in the target category for the indicated date range.

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 set a task
$post_array[] = array(
   "category_code" => 10994,
   "search_mode" => "as_is",
   "date_from" => "2022-09-01",
   "date_group" => "month"
);
try {
   // POST /v3/content_analysis/category_trends/live
   $result = $client->post('/v3/content_analysis/category_trends/live', $post_array);
   print_r($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:
