/delayed/add POST

Allows you to add a keyword(s) to the delayed queue. The delayed queue is for ad-hoc and one-off keyword checks and therefore keywords do not persist beyond the initial request (unlike the daily queue).

The delayed queue is low priority and data is normally returned within 24 hours but please note that delayed requests can take considerably longer to return during particularly busy periods. We strongly recommend that you do not use the delayed queue for time-sensitive requests.

Adding to the delayed queue is rate-limited to 200 checks per user per minute by default. Please contact support if you require more resource.

You can add a maximum of 100 delayed checks within a single http request (i.e. 50 keywords on 2 engines = 100 checks).

Required parameters

Name Type Description
keyword string or array of strings The keyword(s) that you wish to add to the delayed queue. Keywords must be UTF-8 encoded.
engines array of strings The engine_code's you wish to add for the given keyword(s) in the format {engine}_{locale}
location
(optional)
string The geolocation you would like to restrict the search to. Accepted strings include zip codes, post codes or location names. Location strings must be UTF-8 encoded and work with google only.
callback
(optional)
string A callback URL. This will override your global callback URL for this request.
device
(optional)
string The device to use in our User-Agent string. Accepted: desktop or mobile.

Cost

1 credit (per keyword pair). Credits are only consumed when and if data is available.

Example response


{
     "status": "ok",
     "request_time": 1332359153,
     "data": [{
         "delayed_id": "4dc9acea045bbf04348f9691",
         "keyword": "car rental alabama",
         "engine_code": "google_en-us"
     },
     {
         "delayed_id": "4dc9acea045bbf04348f9692",
         "keyword": "car rental alabama",
         "engine_code": "google_en-us"
     }]
 }
	        
Note: you will receive a separate delayed_id for each keyword pair supplied. If you have a callback URI setup for your account, you will receive a similar callback to a standard daily queue keyword except instead of a keyword_id, you will be supplied a delayed_id param. Inside the callback will be a standard check_id which you can use in a request to the /keywords/serp endpoint as you would on the daily queue.
