The Wordtracker API Pricing Guide

A guide to the Wordtracker API plans and pricing model.

The Wordtracker API is priced based on an overage model. This means that with each plan you get a set number of included units, but you can use additional units if you need, which will be billed at the beginning of the following month with your normal plan fee for the coming month. Entry and Standard plans have an inbuilt cap whilst the Enterprise plan is unlimited.

The plans

We offer three plan types as outlined in the pricing table and all prices are given in USD. The plans we offer are;

The Entry plan: this costs $99 a month and comes with 2000 units. If you use all of the included units any additional units will cost you $0.05 (5 cents) each.

The Standard plan: this costs $499 a month and comes with 20,000 units. If you use all of the included units any additional units will cost you $0.02 (2 cents) each.

The Enterprise plan: this costs $1000 a month and comes with 100,000 units. If you use all of the included units any additional units will cost you $0.01 (1 cents) each.

The calls

The unit cost is included in the table as well as the overage cost.

We offer multiple call types. The most popular call type by far is 'search' and in order to keep the pricing simple this is the call we use on the pricing page. If you want a different call type or to find more information check out the API technical documentation for a full breakdown on how the API works.

You can also request additional metrics with your call; for example you may want to get volume and also competition. This would cost you an additional 2 units per call. If you wanted competition and IAAT this would be an additional 4 units per call. Once again you can find the full breakdown of additional metrics within the API documentation.

Submitted keywords are termed 'seeds' within the API. Each call is priced for 100 seed terms. If you submit more than 100 seeds, for example 101, that would be priced as two calls.

Each call can return up to 2000 keywords. The exact number returned will vary depending on how many keywords we have available for the submitted seed terms in the database.

Price per seed keyword

The final section of the pricing page shows the estimated cost for a single seed term. Whilst the minimum cost is that of a single call (10 units), showing the cost per seed term allows for easier estimation of costs and allows you to better select which plan would work best for you.

For example if you had a list of 10,000 keywords and wanted to check just the volume for these each month it would cost you 0.1 units * 10,000 seed terms = 1000 units.

The entry plan includes 2000 units so you would be well within the allowance for this plan. You can then see from the overage costs listed that if you ran over your 2000 allowed units you would be paying $0.005 (on average) per additional seed keyword.
