About SERP APIs
The internet has a plethora of information based on a single keyword search. Narrowing down the search results to only the webpages that contain relevant information based on the search query is of paramount importance. Ranking top at the search engine results pages (SERPs) is the dream of any website developer due to the ease is discoverability and associated conversion rate.
Search engines like Google and Bing keep improving their search engine optimization (SEO) bots and algorithms. Therefore, it is vital to use SERP APIs to scrap data to remain relevant on the web page’s results.
What is a SERP API?
SERP refers to the pages returned on the search engine after typing a keyword on the search bar. The APIs refer to software applications that help you scrape search results from the search engine in real-time, running on a specific programming language to make requests and responses in a given format. These APIs allow you to analyze, review, track, and improve your website’s visibility on the search engine.
How the APIs Work
Create an account with your preferred SERP API. Login to the account and request for an authorization key otherwise called the API access token. The key allows you to make requests through the API.
Based on the endpoint request, the Google SERP APIs allow you to extract information from SERP such as organic results, paid results, featured snippets, and geographic location. You can also use the Google SERP APIs to check statistics on the number of searches, search archives, or locations supported by the API in a fraction of a second.
Webpage developers use these APIs to improve their website visibility on SEO rank. Marketing teams use SERP to get insights on how their products are doing in comparison to your competitors. Local businesses that want to improve on their business listing on search engines use the APIs.
