DataForSEO API Request

Hello, all.


Admittedly, I am a novice when it comes to using APIs as data sources.  I am trying to use the DataForSEO Rank Tracker API to pull a website's rank for two keywords ("outsourced accounting" and "CPA 29910").  I added this address to a blank web query: 

Which returns this error:

  • you must use a POST query for this function


My guess is I need to use a Blank query to extract data from this API, but I'm not positive.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Yes, using the Web.Contents function, you would use the Content option to pass in an empty body (to force a POST) and use the Query option to pass in your parameters
