DataForSEO API Explorer: a handy way to test APIs

API Explorer is a built-in solution that allows testing our APIs without API testing tools (e.g., Postman, Soap UI, Apigee, and so on). It makes actual API calls and provides real JSON data through a graphic user interface.

Once signed in, you can make requests to the following APIs:

  • SERP API;
  • Keyword Data API;
  • OnPage API;
  • Business Data API;
  • DataForSEO Labs API;
  • Backlinks API.

    Note: since the tool makes actual API calls, you will be charged for each request made. The price depends on the used API and the specified parameters. Learn more on our pricing page.

    You can also use the tool to learn how to use our APIs. Namely, you can configure your request in API Explorer and then receive a code example to make an API request in your programming language. Once you specify the parameters of the request, simply click Code Example and select the preferred programming language from the drop-down list.
