How do I check Page Authority and Domain Authority using a MOZ API key?
SEO PowerSuite tools let you collect third-party data, such as MOZ Domain Authority and Page Authority factors for backlinks, link prospects, and websites' pages.
How to get the API key?
To do that, you'll need to have a MOZ API key. If you do not have a Moz account yet, you may create a free community account. Log into your Moz account and generate your Mozscape API key > click to Generate Secret Key:
Moz will provide you with the Access ID and Secret Key that you may then use in SEO PowerSuite tools:
How to apply the key to the apps?
To apply the key, open each SEO PowerSuite app and go to Preferences > Moz API Settings > click Add Key.
Enter your Access ID and Secret Key, and set your license type respectively (free or paid)
Moz offers 2 types of licenses:
- Free key lets you make 1 request per 10 seconds - updating your project stats with a free key take some time
- Paid key lets you send 200 requests per second. Using a paid account, you'll be able to update PA/DA metrics really fast
Once you connect your MOZ API key, you'll be able to check Domain Authority and Page Authority in your projects for domains (in Domain Strength), pages, backlinks, and link prospects across all SEO PowerSuite tools.
