We have released the Keyword Difficulty endpoint in DataFor SEO Labs API!
Keyword Difficulty will help you estimate the difficulty to rank in the top-10 organic results for a specific keyword. The score ranges from 0 (easy) to 100 (extremely hard).
In case you need to get this metric along with search volume, CPC, and other data, use one of the following DataForSEO Labs API endpoints:
- Related Keywords
- Keyword Suggestions
- Ranked Keywords
- Keyword Ideas
- Keywords For Categories
- Domain Intersection
- Page Intersection
- Top Google Searches
In API responses, Keyword Difficulty appears within the serp_info object. To receive it, you should set the include_serp_info parameter to true when setting a task. You can also filter and sort the results by Keyword Difficulty.
Since Keyword Difficulty calculation requires SERP data, this metric is only available for keywords included in our SERP database.
