WebMeUp, SEO solution provider, started pushing its SEO API during the second half of 2013. Developer adoption has been rapid; thus, WebMeUp dedicated more attention to the API and has now released some major enhancements. The new offering includes location based services and increased accuracy for rankings data.
Irene Turchynovich, WebMeUp VP of Business Development, explained:
"We've been marketing SEO API for 6+ months now, and quite a number of software developers have opted for the API to back up their tools with outsourced SEO data. It turned out that many high-end SEO agencies have in-house solutions for SEO reporting, and they also found integrating particular API methods into their reporting solutions cost-effective."
The WebMeUp SEO API was built for application developers. Developers can integrate the API with applications to gather data regarding site optimization. In turn, developers can offer the data through a custom interface to the application owner/client. The data available through the SEO API are rich and extensive. WebMeUp understands that not all clients have interest in the same data; thus, flexible API packages are available.
The WebMeUp SEO API returns calls in a JSON data format. The additional data sets added with the enhancement include 4 times more requests, 10 times faster response for keyword and backlinks methods, and location specification. The enhancements join an already extensive list of over 12 different SEO related methods. For more information, visit the API site.
The competitive landscape for attention on the web is unlike any market the world has ever encountered. A single marketplace for every industry, individual, government agency, and more. Optimization has become a given in web and application development and maintenance. The WebMeUp SEO API has already proven itself a dynamic tool and its ongoing enhancements should continue to impress users.
