SimilarWeb Traffic Analytics API: Overview

SimilarWeb Traffic Analytics API will supply you with the following website data:

  • global, country and category rank
  • total visits
  • bounce rate
  • traffic by countries
  • referral and social traffic
  • top 5 organic and paid keywords
  • related mobile apps
  • similar sites

 
This data is especially useful for running competitor analysis and market intelligence campaigns.

This API provides data based on SimilarWeb. Note that you can get data only for websites with over 5,000 monthly visitors due to SimilarWeb restrictions.

Methods

SimilarWeb Traffic Analytics API supports both Standard and Live methods of data retrieval. If your system requires delivering instant results, the Live method is the best solution for you. Unlike the Standard method, this method doesn’t require making separate POST and GET requests to the corresponding endpoints.

If you don’t need to receive data in real-time, you can use the Standard method of data retrieval. The Standard method requires making separate POST and GET requests. Using this method, you can retrieve the results after our system collects them.

‌Alternatively, you can specify pingback_url or postback_url when setting a task, and we will notify you on completion of tasks or send them to you respectively.

If you need to set several tasks, you can receive the list of id for all completed tasks using ‘Tasks Ready’ endpoint, and then collect the results of each separate task using ‘Task GET’ endpoint.

You can send up to 2000 API calls per minute. Contact us if you would like to raise the limit.

Cost

The cost can be calculated on the Pricing page.

You can check your spending in your account dashboard or by making a separate call to the User Data endpoint.
