Let’s start with what is an API?
An Application Programming Interface is a tool that allows direct contact between different software. Its goal is to allow companies to receive a service or a new software feature from outside the structure. This means that the company does not need to develop or change anything on their database for the update to happen. Consequently, an API is a door to receive and provide information. So, without having to change how the database works, companies can receive a new service or update. For example, an API for getting site traffic data like the one we will see below. Now let us get into an explanation about what traffic means.
What is site traffic?
This API will provide you with information about site traffic analytics. From what countries are visiting and related sites by category.

3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
