SEOstats: SEO metrics library for PHP

SEOstats is a powerful open source PHP library to request a bunch of SEO relevant metrics such as detailed backlink analyses, keyword and traffic statistics, website trends, page authority, the Google Pagerank, the Alexa Trafficrank and much more.

SEOstats offers over 50 different methods and gathers data from Alexa, Google, Mozscape (by Moz - f.k.a. Seomoz), SEMRush, Open-Site-Explorer, Sistrix, Facebook, Twitter & many more.

Dependencies

SEOstats requires PHP version 5.3 or greater and the PHP5-CURL and PHP5-JSON extensions.

Installation

The recommended way to install SEOstats is through composer. To install SEOstats, just create the following composer.json file

{
    "require": {
        "seostats/seostats": "dev-master"
    }
}

and run the php composer.phar install (Windows: composer install) command in path of the composer.json.

Step-by-step example:

If you haven't installed composer yet, here's the easiest way to do so:

# Download the composer installer and execute it with PHP:
user@host:~/> curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

# Copy composer.phar to where your local executables live:
user@host:~/> mv /path/given/by/composer-installer/composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer.phar

# Alternatively: For ease of use, you can add an alias to your bash profile:
# (Note, you need to re-login your terminal for the change to take effect.)
user@host:~/> echo 'alias composer="php /usr/local/bin/composer.phar"' >> ~/.profile

If you have installed composer, follow these steps to install SEOstats:

# Create a new directory and cd into it:
user@host:~/> mkdir /path/to/seostats && cd /path/to/seostats

# Create the composer.json for SEOstats:
user@host:/path/to/seostats> echo '{"require":{"seostats/seostats":"dev-master"}}' > composer.json

# Run the install command:
user@host:/path/to/seostats> composer install

Writing lock file
Generating autoload files

# You're done. For a quick start, you can now 
# copy the example files to the install directory:
user@host:/path/to/seostats> cp ./vendor/seostats/seostats/example/*.php  ./

# Your SEOstats install directory should look like this now:
user@host:/path/to/seostats> ls -1
composer.json
composer.lock
get-alexa-graphs.php
get-alexa-metrics.php
get-google-pagerank.php
get-google-pagespeed-analysis.php
get-google-serps.php
get-opensiteexplorer-metrics.php
get-semrush-graphs.php
get-semrush-metrics.php
get-sistrix-visibilityindex.php
get-social-metrics.php
vendor

Use SEOstats without composer

If composer is no option for you, you can still just download the SEOstats.zip file of the current master branch (version 2.5.2) and extract it. However, currently there is an issues with autoloading and you need to follow the instructions in the comments in the example files in order to use SEOstats (or download zip for the development version of SEOstats (2.5.3) here).

Usage

Configuration

There're two configuration files to note:

  1. `./SEOstats/Config/ApiKeys.php`
    Client API Keys (currently required for Mozscape and Google's Pagespeed Service only).
  2. `./SEOstats/Config/DefaultSettings.php`
    Some default settings for querying data (mainly locale related stuff).

Brief Example of Use

To use the SEOstats methods, you must include one of the Autoloader classes first (For composer installs: ./vendor/autoload.php; for zip download: ./SEOstats/bootstrap.php).

Now, you can create a new SEOstats instance an bind any URL to the instance for further use with any child class.

<?php
// Depending on how you installed SEOstats
#require_once __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'SEOstats' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'bootstrap.php';
require_once __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'vendor' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'autoload.php';

use \SEOstats\Services as SEOstats;

try {
  $url = 'http://www.google.com/';

  // Create a new SEOstats instance.
  $seostats = new \SEOstats\SEOstats;

  // Bind the URL to the current SEOstats instance.
  if ($seostats->setUrl($url)) {

    echo SEOstats\Alexa::getGlobalRank();
    echo SEOstats\Google::getPageRank();
  }
}
catch (SEOstatsException $e) {
  die($e->getMessage());
}

Alternatively, you can call all methods statically passing the URL to the methods directly.

<?php
// Depending on how you installed SEOstats
#require_once __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'SEOstats' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'bootstrap.php';
require_once __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'vendor' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'autoload.php';

try {
  $url = 'http://www.google.com/';

  // Get the Google Toolbar Pagerank for the given URL.
  echo \SEOstats\Services\Google::getPageRank($url);
}
catch (SEOstatsException $e) {
  die($e->getMessage());
}

More detailed examples can be found in the ./example directory.
