11 SERP APIs to Scrape Search Engine Results
You can actually get a lot of SEO insights without using any tools: just Google your keyword and observe the results.
The only problem is that this is pretty time consuming to do at scale. Unless you automate the SERP data gathering process…
Using a SERP API, you can quickly collect information from Google’s search engine results pages for you to analyse.
You can look for things like how the top ranking pages are writing their page titles, the keywords they are targeting, how they format their content or take it a stage further and do some deeper link analysis.
