Actual Backlinks for exact Anchor Text

Below you can see example of a query that will return actual backlinks using majestic as exact anchor text:
https://api.majestic.com/api/xml?app_api_key=API_KEY&cmd=GetAnchorText&item=http://www.majestic.com&FilterAnchorText=majestic&Mode=2
Please note that backlink queries will only work if previous queries for the same index item returned variable CanReturnURLs="1", otherwise query won't return any results (typically happens for large domains).

This produces the following XML:

Notes:

  • Variables set on table with returned data called CanReturnURLs indicates if index can return backlinks for given query-1 it can, 0 - not (In such case don't show + sign to drill into backlinks)
  • Variable TotalResults returns max number of results that can be returned, this should be used for paging logic.
  • Variables TotalBackLinks="1" and TotalRedDomains="1" returns sum of backlinks and refdomains, most meaningful for aggregated anchor text and red domains to show %-tages each of them have the total
  • Simple paging logic is supported: From=0 and Count=10 to page
