Bulk collection of data on URL and domains from Majestic
SEO | Filip Podstavec
Majestic is one of the world's biggest tools for backlink analysis. It is not only a source of much valuable information for link builders but it also has recently started getting interested in other segments, other than links.
Majestic miner allows a Marketing Miner user to collect data in bulk for a bigger amount of URL or domains straight from the tool by linking a user account through OpenApps.
How to connect Majestic account to Marketing Miner
The process is simple: Just check the Majestic miner in the URL miners section. After clicking on the checkbox the following text should appear:
"Click here and obtain your Majestic access token."
After clicking here, a user goes to the Majestic website, where he grant access to the Marketing Miner application. Then, Majestic generates a unique API key that he will, after returning to Marketing Miner, insert in to the Access token field.

Limits of Majestic API
Majestic, within OpenApps, limits the non-paying user to free 500 queries per day. Paid tariffs' limits are much higher, see table below:
|Lite||5 000 / month|
|Pro||125 000 / month|
|API||500 000 / month|
