    Posted on: November 2nd, 2015 by Patrick Hathaway in Updates

    Before I tell you what’s new, I have a bit of bad news to share – we’ve had to change the way we give you ‘free’ Majestic metrics. A year ago, Majestic gave us access to a throttled version of their API for use within our tool; unfortunately this API has now been decommissioned. As […]

  • Twitter: Removing Share Counts to Increase Share Price?

    Twitter Share Counts
    Posted on: October 16th, 2015 by Patrick Hathaway in Social

    Twitter announced recently that they are going to close down the API that provides share counts for webpages.
