Today, we're adding 1 new response object "source_priority". Starting today, your response will include source_priority, which shows the rank of news domains on the basis of their traffic and authenticity. The lower the source priority, the more authentic the domain.
Today, we're adding a parameter "prioritydomain" in the News "Sources" endpoint. This enhancement allows you to retrieve a list of News sources based on their credibility by utilizing the "prioritydomain" parameter. For instance, specifying "prioritydomain=top" will retrieve 100 news sources that rank within the top 10% of all available sources.
Today, We're updating the 'timeframe' parameter in the "news" and "crypto" endpoint, now users can search the news articles for a specific time frame in minutes. You can define the timeframe in minutes from 1m to 2880m.
Today, we're adding 1 new response object "article_id". Starting today, your response will include article_id, which is the unique id of each article.
Today, we're launching 1 new parameter "qInMeta". Along with "q" and "qInTitle" we are launching one more query parameter to let our users get more news compared to "qInTitle" and much more relevancy compared to "q" parameters.
"qInMeta": Search news articles for specific keywords or phrases present in the news titles, URL, meta keywords and meta description only. The value must be URL-encoded and the maximum character limit permitted is 512 characters. Note: qInMeta can't be used with either q or qInTitle parameters in the same query.
Difference between "q", "qInTitle" and "qInMeta"
"qInTitle" searches the keywords/phrases only in the Title of the news articles.
"qInMeta" searches the keywords/phrases in Title, URL, meta description and meta keywords of the news articles.
"q" searches the keywords/phrases in everything like Title, URL, meta description, meta keywords and full content of the articles.
Today, We're updating the Archive Endpoint. Starting today, your query must include one of these parameters: ['q', 'qintitle', 'domain', 'country', 'category', 'language', 'full_content', 'image', 'video', 'prioritydomain', 'domainurl'], otherwise your API query will not work.
Today, we have increased the historical data access in the Professional and Corporate Plans. Corporate users can now access 2 years of historical data, while Professional users can access 1 year of historical data.
Today, we're launching 8 new parameters and updating 1 parameter.
