2.1 – Root domain metrics

 

The Root domain metrics are not working?

Moz has two layers of API access.

The first one is free, but it’s limited in terms of the metrics you can query from this kind of report. This layer doesn’t include the Root domain metrics.

 

All Root domain metrics are only available for their customers with the paid version of MOZscape API.

3 – Data History

 

There’s no data history in the Moz API. However, we keep a historic from the moment you create any Moz widget. You can then see how your numbers evolve over time.
