Web info Alexa API

I have

  1. The list of domains:
  2. The API key: XXXXX
  3. Request URL example: https://awis.api.alexa.com/api?Action=UrlInfo&Count=10&ResponseGroup=Rank,LinksInCount&Start=1&Url=cnn.com
    What is the best way to get web info from Alexa for each domain by Parabola?

Hey Yurii - First, since you want to make requests to the API with different URL endpoints, I suggest using the API Enrichment step instead of the API Import step.

You would want to import a table of the list of domains you listed in #1, whether it be a Google Sheet, CSV, or Excel file.

Then, in your API Enrichment step, you’ll want you API endpoint to look like this:

Be sure to update what’s inside the curly braces {} based on your own column name.

For authenticating the API Enrichment step, select None in the Authentication dropdown.
Instead we’re going to create two custom headers.

Header Key: Accept
Header Value: application/xml
Header Key: x-api-key
Header Value: your own API key

Note that you can type in values to the Header Key field. You don’t have to select from the dropdown.

Let me know how that goes!

Awesome! Glad to hear it, @Yurii_Dukhncich. Once you’ve completed this, be sure to post about it in Show and Tell: https://community.parabola.io/c/show-and-tell/13

I’d love to learn more about what you were able to achieve, and I’m sure others will be interested in it too.
