SERP API Pricing

The cost of DataForSEO SERP API varies based on the method and priority of a set task. In addition to that, SERP API incorporates a few optional parameters that can also impact the final cost of data.

Base Price

The base price of 100 search engine results obtained with SERP API varies based on the method and priority that correspond to the speed of task execution. Accordingly, the faster you want to get the results, the higher will be the price of the task.

The Live method features an accelerated turnaround time (up to 11 seconds) and provides for real-time results, whereas the Standard method is based on the queue and includes two priorities – normal (up to 5 minutes) and high (up to 1 minute).

Additional parameters

SERP API lists a set of parameters that can increase the cost of setting a task. The cost of a task is multiplied for using each of these parameters. Note that the final can contain multiple multipliers.

Parameter Cost multiplier
‘allinanchor:’, ‘allintext:’, ‘allintitle:’, ‘allinurl:’, ‘define:’, ‘filetype:’, ‘id:’, ‘inanchor:’, ‘info:’, ‘intext:’, ‘intitle:’, ‘inurl:’, ‘link:’, ‘related:’, ‘site:’ Multiply by 5 for each parameter used
“calculate_rectangles” Multiply by 2
“depth” Multiply for each 100 search engine results*

Depth

Your account is billed for every 100 results of the following SERP API search engine types:

· Google Organic, Google Maps, Google News, Google Events, Google Images, Search by Image

· Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, Naver

Using the search engine types listed below, you will be billed for a different number of results:

· Google Local Finder – for every 20 results for desktop and every 10 results for mobile

· Google Jobs, Seznam – for every 10 results

Accordingly, if you specify “depth” above the default number of results, the price for the task will be multiplied. For example, if you specify “depth”: 150, and the default value is 100, the price for the task will be multiplied by 2 and you will be billed as for 200 results.
