(Old version) Summary report

Support for the getSummary method has been discontinued, the procedure will be disabled on 09/23/2022.

The getSummary method gives you general information about link profile: number of external links, referring IP addresses and subnets, number of referring domains and subdomains, domain authority indicator and types of referring links. The data set is similar to the Overview report.

The data in this report and all the detailed reports can differ slightly due to the algorithm for quickly calculating summary data.
