1 million blog posts per day

Gain access to in-depth stories with our Blogs API

When blogs first gained popularity, they embodied social media. While numerous content-sharing platforms have emerged since then, blogs continue to thrive due to their distinctive ability to share in-depth arguments, stories, and perspectives. While there may be fewer publishers, the readership remains steadfast, granting each blog post a wider reach and greater significance in the media landscape.

We index 1 million blog posts per day from all over the world and make them available in our Blogs API. We add over 3,000 new active blogs every day, which is crucial given the substantial turnover of blogs in the blogosphere. If that isn't sufficient, you can effortlessly add more blogs yourself, and we will include them in our coverage for you.
