Google Related Search API

The google_related_api method provides up to 10 keyword results from Google related search. 

Google Suggested Search Results API

Google Related Search API is one of our SEO Intelligence Search API methods, data is available for Google, including localized versions.

Data Retention: data generated by this API is stored for 60 days.

Please contact us with the number of keywords and search engines you'd like this data for, along with the frequency (e.g., daily, weekly or monthly), and we'll provide you with information regarding a custom SERP API package and pricing.


API Options & Restrictions


API package capacity can be upgraded at any time.

Multiple types of API packages (Rank Top 50 Daily with SERP Features, Google Suggested Search Monthly, etc.) can exist in one account.
IMPORTANT! When creating new campaigns you must be careful to select the correct package for the new campaign because you:
  • Cannot transfer keywords or campaigns between Reporting Platform and API packages or between different types of API packages.
  • Cannot change an existing API package to a different type (e.g., Rank Top50 to Google Suggested Search).
  • Cannot change the frequency (e.g. from Monthly to Daily) of an existing API package.
