Example Use Cases of the cognitiveSEO API

Campaign API Credits & Cost

The API is available for all Premium Subscription users and up. Each subscription type has a number of API credits assigned by default. Should the API Credits limit be reached and you need more credits, you can write us anytime at and we will provide you with options to increase your credit limits.

The commands in the Campaigns API are also limited by the limits on your subscription. So, if you want to run an analysis on 100 sites and your subscription only allows 50, then you will only be able to add 50 sites using the API. The Campaigns API is used to create campaign and query the data in your cognitiveSEO account.

Public Integrations (Commercial or Free)

The cognitiveSEO API allows full integration within the applications that you sell or distribute (commercially or freely). In order to share it, we only require an attribution by mentioning the cognitiveSEO brand inside the application (powered by cognitiveSEO). For more information on this, please contact us at

Private Integrations

You can implement the API in tools or scripts that you use internally. For example: agency scripts/tools that are used to analyze and report the data to clients.
