Following the popular reaction to our Site Explorer updates (featuring new and lost links tabs and a new anchor text breakdown),
we are pleased to announce, today, the support of these features via the Majestic API.

Documentation has already been made available on our developers site at for the following commands:


For popular keyword, this command tells users how many times we have seen this keyword in URLS, Ancor text or Titles on the web. This is a powerful new piece of information, which is independent of Google’s concept of Keyword competitiveness and we therefore feel will be valuable to the PPC and Advertising world as much as the Organic SEO world.


Following widespread positive feedback for our new and lost backlinks enhancement (featuring date range selection ), we have released the command which powers our powerful new and lost backlinks calendar chart:

This can list the backlink detail for any given date and is the real “meat” of the data.


We have also enhanced our Backlinks API to provide a better interface to our backlinks data:

This command is more efficient than our previous command at returning large volumes of backlinks. Obviously, we appreciate a large number of organisations have come to depend on our interface, so the old means of calling will be supported for legacy customers.


This command powers the new and lost backlink charts in site explorer where it provides a link count summary of the dates one needs to drill down on when analysing New or lost links information.

We hope these are as well received as our front end changes to site explorer!
