Find out how you can use the power of Wordtracker's API to get access to big keyword data

Ever wondered what your application could do with the power of cloud computing and terabytes of keyword data behind it? Well now you can find out with the new Wordtracker API

It’s no secret that we’ve found some great new data sources to massively improve the quality of our data. Finding all this data created a problem though - suddenly we had terabytes of keyword data on our hands and nowhere to put it and no way to process it.

This is when we looked to the cloud for the solution. It's given us unlimited storage and processing power within a quickly scalable solution. Using multiple clusters we can wield over 307 ghz of processing power. Or to put it another way, more than 7,675,000 times the computational power that put the first man on the moon.

If you’re wondering why we need all this grunt it’s because of the amount of vertices we have within our data. We don’t just have really cool metrics like IAAT, IT, Volume, Competition etc etc, but we also have this for hundreds of different countries. What’s more, this is all available segmented over time.

Let me give you some examples of what you could do with this…

  • Let’s say you want to know the impact of an advertising campaign. How many people were searching for your brand or product before, during and after the campaign?
  • Find out how many people search for a term throughout the year and track the impact of seasonality
  • Quickly find the search volumes for any given keyword for any week in the year

Our API plugs you directly into this data - we’ve optimized it for speed and stability so you know you will be able to get results with sub-second response times. This isn’t just keyword data, it’s Big keyword data.

Currently the API is in private beta, and it’s being tested to make sure it’s up to scratch. We’re also using it to power our own tools, so we know it’s up to the job. We're planning to release it fully in the next few days, meaning that everyone will be able to access it.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
