Test Our APIs Without Leaving Diffbot Docs

docs.diffbot.com got a HUGE makeover recently. We've migrated over 250 pages from 3 separate documentation sites and organized multiple API specifications into the same view. Our favorite new feature is the ability to test APIs directly in the docs. Enter some input parameters and submit to get a response immediately. Then copy the request code into your application. Try it out with the DQL Search API.

Added 'technographics' as an attribute of Organizations (Alpha)

We are slowly rolling out support for 'technographics' as an attribute of Organizations. Ultimately, there will be many sources of this data and coverage across all Organizations in the graph. To start, more than 8.5Mil companies include some level of technographic data. Below is an example of how the technology is represented in the default JSON output (excerpted from the IBM entity).

Improved accuracy of estimated employee counts for publicly-traded, US companies

Search for lookalike companies using a similarity_score threshold

We've added the ability to search for lookalike companies with a similarity_score threshold. Give it a try:

List API - NEW!

Today we've added The List API to the Diffbot API suite of extraction APIs. The List API automatically extracts data from any single web page that contains a primary list of items, such as news index pages, product listings pages, and search engine results pages. It is also embedded under the Diffbot Analyze API which will now attempt to identify and extract pages that match the criteria for a List page. Please refer to the List API documentation for more information.

similarTo 'id1 and ID2'

We've added the ability to query on look-alikes using two or more Diffbot Org IDs as inputs.
