A few weeks ago we announced a few initiatives to make our blog data even better so that our API clients can get even more compelling and complete insights into the world of the blogosphere. As we put it: Our goal is to have the best blog data in Europe in terms of coverage, quality and immediacy.
Now we again have good news for our API clients: Until recently we have only had 4 month of historic data available through our Analytics API. As of now, we extend that data to a full 12 month, with no extra charge. With that change, we can provide companies and organisation with even better, more complete data.
At the same time we also upgraded our search language which will make it possible to search for single characters. Previously two character words were the shortest query. This is something that our customers have requested and we are happy to finally release these features. This upgrade will also make the data available faster. Before it took up to 15 min from finding a blog post to making it searchable in Analytics, going forward it will only take seconds.
And by the way, our goal is to make all our data starting from 2006 available through our Analytics API, so there is more to come!
For all users of Twingly.com the upgrade means that the public blog search can provide 12 month of historic data as well.
