    Now that Yahoo Site Explore is no longer updating, how much longer will it stay up to handle requests? Of course in 6 months this data will be dated, but it still checks older domains.

    What are some good Api's where you can hook into for large amount of requests? Say around 15,000 domains a day. I know this will most likely cost, but how much is reasonable?

    Thanks.

    Good question!

    MajesticSEO & OpenSiteExplorer will be your only options. Moz has a FREE api, not sure what the request limitations are. I know most people only use it for Moz Metrics. Would be worth researching both of those. I would be interested to hear what you find out though.

    I wonder when Spyglass is going to update their software to use majesticseo or something else. I'm surprised they haven't done it yet considering market samurai has for awhile now.

    Thanks Brent. I will keep researching. Hopefully something comes up in our favor. You think Bing may launch a similar service?

    It's working. It just isn't updating. The API officially shut down September 15th. So if Spyglass is showing new backlinks that's because it's new since the last time you ran Spyglass. However, Yahoo already discovered those backlinks.

    No problem! If you have problems finding the API sites for both, just holler. I have them bookmarked.

    Bing will not do anything with this. The plan was to roll YSE's link feature into Bing Webmaster Tools. So, you'll only be able to see fresh data for your own sites. I think we'll be self-reliant on third party tools from this point on.

    i wonder if that can be done without some monthly fee..majestic seo is paid service and they wont allow any 3 rd party tool integration for free.

    Market Samurai does it and doesn't have a monthly fee. Why couldn't spyglass do the same?

    Hey guys,

    According to our estimates, Yahoo! Site Explorer shut down won't result in a reduced number of backlinks found by SEO SpyGlass.

    We'll soon add an option of getting backlinks from additional backlink sources.

    That's strange because I sent a ticket to you guys yesterday saying that I am no longer receiving Yahoo data at all.

    Ya man, the API is finished. Not sure how they figure this coupled with YSE leaving won't result in a reduced number of backlinks found. I'd definitely be expediting the process of finding additional back link sources. Moz API, with your current pricing model, should be extremely affordable. Once you pass the high-volume threshold their prices seem to be very reasonable. I'd even look at partnering with them to provide killer link building resources to the Moz community.

    Interesting. Looks like I'll have to use something in addition to Scrapebox to check backlinks. I'm doing things on such a massive scale that it doesn't really matter if the data is a month or two old. But beyond that I'll need to find an alternative.

    Ahrefs API might be worth considering too

    I'll have to check it out again. I looked at it awhile back after seeing a post here. Seemed pretty solid.

    I've been after buying seo spyglass, but I've held off until this is sorted. I've used the free version and most of the backlinks are from yahoo.

    Why have I never heard of this? Can you tell me or point me into any other threads about this? Thanks man! This is pretty entry-level for new toolsets.

    I spoke to scrapebox and they made it seem like everything is still cool. I also did notice a few recent links reported, that came well after the 15th.
