All the functions are at your fingertips: from the analysis of a single site, to scanning involving complex estimates. You can find more information about using the interface in the manual.

How to find out the amount of branded traffic from a domain?
Using the API Console is a universal way to find out how much brand traffic a page has.
traff - all traffic;
traff_cost - traffic cost estimate (CPC * traff);
brand_traff - branded traffic;
brand_traff_cost - assessment of branded traffic;
brand_traff_prc - percentage of branded traffic.
We get a method for determining branded traffic with 90%: if among these 10 pages there are landing pages, then the traffic is branded, otherwise not.

How to estimate SEO monetary value?
How is traff_cost estimated?
traff - approximate traffic for a keyword (depends on the position and frequency of the keyword).
cost - The average cost per click (CPC) according to Google Ads.
How are the limits spent?
Lite Plan: 100.000.
Standard Plan: 500.000.
Advanced Plan: 1.000.000.
Enterprise Plan: 2.000.000.
Unused limits burn out at the end of the month. And you get new ones depending on the plan.
You will spend API lines for using the service. If you download a 1000-lined report, then 1000 API lines will be spent. Downloading starts after pressing the Load Data button.
After the data has been downloaded, the lines won't be used until you press the Load Data button again. That is, you can filter queries by negative keywords, download data and perform SQL filtering for free.
Data is not always downloaded from Serpstat. The console caches requests. In this case, the lines are not used. For example, if you change nothing, press the Load Data button a second time, then the report will download instantly and you will not spend anything.
If you have two regions and you click Load Data and then add a third region, then ⅔ of data will be obtained from the cache (fast and free). On the other hand, some advanced features may spend more lines. For example, we have already described how the domains_keywords_match_sdk method works.
Also, if you use part of the URL instead of a domain (for example, serpstat.com/en/blog/), the console will download keywords throughout the site and only then delete those that don't contain serpstat.com/en/blog/.
You can control the amount of downloaded data by setting Max. Rows. In most methods, it will be equal to Max. rows * number of domains * number of regions.
If you enter into domain_keywords a small site with only 100 keywords, no matter what the limit is, no more than 100 lines will be downloaded.
After clicking Load Data, it will show how many rows there are in the Serpstat database (total) and how many are downloaded.
To save lines, you can set up the method. For example, set Position.To = 10 or add filter keywords. But not all methods support these settings.
