GetBackLinkData

Status

Command status: Active
Supported by OpenApps API: Yes
Supported by Internal/Reseller API: Yes
Possibly queued processing: No

Purpose

This command returns information of the backlinks at domain, subdomain or URL level.

Note: This command does NOT return links flagged as Alt Text or Mentions (FlagAltText|FlagMention).

Resources consumed

Resource Description

AnalysisResUnits

5000 AnalysisResUnits are consumed for each use.

Note: AnalysisResUnits consumed will be higher when sorting and/or filtering (when parameter ConsumeResourcesForAdditionalProcessing = 1).

RetrievalResUnits

This resource will be decreased by actual number of rows of data retrieved (returned) by this command.

Parameters

Parameter Description

cmd

Required: must be set to: GetBackLinkData

datasource

Optional - defaults to historic
Either: "fresh" - to query against Fresh Index, or "historic" - to query against Historic Index.

item

The URL, domain or subdomain for which the backlinks will be returned.

Count

Number of results to be returned back.

Default: 100
Maximum: 50000

From

The result position from which to start returning backlinks.

For example, when "From=50", the returned backlinks would start at the 51st result (the first result is 0) and provide [Count] results. This allows data to be fetched in groups, similar to the paging on the main Majestic site.

Default: 0

Mode

Optional, 0 by default which means top links included deleted ones will be returned (GetTopBackLinks removes deleted links)

If set to 1 it will also remove deleted links - should be switch for customers

ShowDomainInfo

Optional: if enabled (set to 1) then additional data table with information on referring domains present in backlinks will be returned. Default: 0 (Disabled)

MaxSourceURLsPerRefDomain

Can be set to -1 (default), 1, 3 or 10 only. If set to greater than 0, then this value will limit number of source urls taken from any given referring domain.

If set to 1, then it will effectively produce list of referring domains with just 1 best backlink from each of them.

Default: -1 (not set)

MaxSameSourceURLs

Some index items (usually domains) may have more than one link out from any given source url, sometimes with different anchor text, sometimes with different flags. This parameter is designed to control maximum number of such backlinks returned.

If set to greater than 0, then it will set a limit to number of same source urls returned.

Note: Usage of this option will result in some anchor text/flags combinations not returned back.

If set to 1 it will guarantee that only unique source urls returned.

Default: -1 (not set)

Example:

http://www.example.com (source URL) links to http://www.majestic.com with anchor text "example".
http://www.example.com (source URL) also links to http://www.majestic.com with anchor text "another example".

If this parameter is set to 1, then only the first source URL/anchor text combination will be returned. It is undefined which precise anchor text/flags combination will get priority in such case. It is recommended to use filtering flags to ensure undesired backlinks are eliminated before this parameter takes effect.

RefDomain

Setting a RefDomain parameter will return up to the top 10 backlinks from that domain

FilterTopic

Optional: Filters the backlinks by the specified topic. Please note the topic matched may not be primary.

Values: Any topic returned by a command, e.g. Computers/Programming/Languages.

FilterTopicsRefDomainsMode

Optional: Links from the referring domain of the supplied FilterTopic will be returned.

This should be used in conjunction with ShowDomainInfo=1 as the link itself may not be of the supplied FilterTopic but it’s domain will (it may not be the primary topic)

Values: 0 (default) or 1

UsePrefixScan

Optional: Setting to 1 will activate prefix mode.

This operates like the "Path (URL*)" functionality in Majestic Site Explorer on the majestic.com website.

This commands will check if real time querying of given item is possible, if that's not the case then RealTimePrefixQueryNotPossible error code will be returned.

See also Get Prefix Query Estimate

New Sorting and Filtering Parameters

Note: Using these parameters will consume additional AnalysisResUnits

Due to popular demand, these parameters apply sorting and filtering on the result set in a way which is functionally equivalent to downloading the data, and manually applying the transformations. This means less work client-side, as well as increased speed and reduced RetrievalResUnits charges (do to the fewer rows returned).

Parameter Description

ConsumeResourcesForAdditionalProcessing

Additional Charge

Must be set to 1 to enable Sorting and/or Filtering parameters (Default is 0).

An additional 5000 AnalysisResUnits will be consumed when ConsumeResourcesForAdditionalProcessing is set to 1, with further AnalysisResUnits consumed depending on the Filtering Depth chosen.


When set to 1, additional statistics will be returned describing the returned backlinks (default is 0).

See the Statistical Data table for detailed descriptions.


A maximum of 5 concurrent requests may be made to the API when ConsumeResourcesForAdditionalProcessing is set to 1.

SortBy1

Sorts results by a specified field.

Can be set to one of:

  • AnchorText
  • DateDeleted
  • DomainCitationFlow
  • DomainTrustFlow
  • ExternalOutlinks
  • FirstSeen
  • InternalOutlinks
  • LastSeen
  • OutDomainsExternal
  • SourceCitationFlow
  • SourceTrustFlow
  • SourceUrl
  • TargetUrlLength
  • TotalOutlinks

For example:

SourceURLSourceURLTrustFlowSourceURLCitationFlow
http://example.com/a/1020
http://example.com/b/119
http://example.com/c/1011
http://example.com/d/1110

The above table when sorted by SourceTrustFlow descending becomes:

SourceURLSourceURLTrustFlowSourceURLCitationFlow
http://example.com/b/119
http://example.com/d/1110
http://example.com/a/1020
http://example.com/c/1011

SortDir1

The direction SortBy1 will be applied.

Can be set to either "desc" or "asc", defaults to "desc".

SortBy2

Sorts results by a specified field after SortBy1 has been applied.

Using the example from SortBy1, setting SortBy1 to SourceTrustFlow and SortBy2 to SourceCitationFlow, these would be the results.

SourceURLSourceURLTrustFlowSourceURLCitationFlow
http://example.com/d/1110
http://example.com/b/119
http://example.com/a/1020
http://example.com/c/1011

SortDir2

The direction SortBy2 will be applied.

Can be set to "desc" or "asc", defaults to "desc".

FilteringDepth

Additional Charge

Specifies how many of the top backlinks to include when filtering and sorting.

Supports the FilteringDepth values specified in the table below (default is 5000). The table also shows a breakdown of AnalysisResUnits consumed for each level.

FilteringDepthAnalysisResUnits Consumed
FilteringDepth CostConsumeResourcesForAdditionalProcessingCommandTotal Per Request
50000+ 5,000+ 5,00010,000
150003,00013,000
300006,00016,000
400008,00018,000
5000010,00020,000

For example: FilteringDepth=30000


Due to the size of our dataset, we can currently only process at maximum the top 50,000 backlinks per sorting / filtering query.

When selecting a FilteringDepth of n, a total of n top backlinks will be filtered through before being returned.


Will return an IllegalArgument error if an invalid FilteringDepth is set.

Filters

The Filters parameter operates differently from other parameters. It takes a string containing a combination of filters, causing GetBackLinkData to return only the filtered backlinks. All filtering is done via this single parameter.

A maximum of 25 filters may be used in a single query.


Examples include:

  1. Filters=TrustFlow("eq",10)
  2. Filters=TrustFlow("eq",20) and CitationFlow("eq",30)
  3. Filters=TrustFlow("eq",20) or CitationFlow("eq",30)
  4. Filters=TrustFlow("eq",20) and CitationFlow("eq",30) and SourceLanguage("en")
  5. Filters=(TrustFlow("eq",20) and CitationFlow("eq",30)) or SourceLanguage("en")

Example 1 → only returns backlinks where TrustFlow is equal to 10.

Example 2 → only returns backlinks where TrustFlow is equal to 20 and CitationFlow is equal to 30.

Example 3 → returns backlinks where TrustFlow is equal to 20, but also returns backlinks where CitationFlow is equal to 30.

Example 4 → only returns backlinks where TrustFlow is equal to 20, CitationFlow is equal to 30 and the SourceLanguage is English.

Example 5 → returns backlinks where TrustFlow is equal to 20 and CitationFlow is equal to 30, but also returns backlinks where the SourceLanguage is English, irrespective of their TrustFlow and CitationFlow values.


String arguments for a filter must be quoted, if the argument contains quotes, they must be double quoted.

For example, to search for strings in a title you would do the following:

StringParameter with argument
This argument is a string so we put it in quotesTitleContains("This argument is a string so we put it in quotes")
And like "THIS" for quoted wordsTitleContains("And like ""THIS"" when a string has quotes")

Valid operators are:

  • eq → value must equal the input exactly
  • gt → value must be greater than the input (exclusive)
  • lt → value must be less than the input (exclusive)

For example: FirstIndexed("gt", "2019-09-30") would return backlinks where the earliest indexed date in the index was after "2019-09-30".

LastSeen(o, v)
  • o → operator, either "gt", "lt" or "eq" (see below)
