BuzzSumo APIs

As part of all our paid plans, we offer access to two REST APIs

Our Search and Account APIs allow you to access BuzzSumo article, sharer, influencer and trending data in a structured format; plus manage the creation of Alerts and Projects in your account.

If you’re a developer with a paying account, you can find our API documentation here, including how to access your API key.

No paid plan? On trial?

If you would like to trial our APIs and you’re on trial or you do not have a paid account, please contact support with a description of your use case and we may be able to provide a trial key. Alternatively, take a look at our plans.
