ContextualWeb News API finds exactly what you're looking for, fast. Don't take our word for it - take it for a test drive! Your first 10,000 requests per month are on us.


Your Privacy, Protected

We are committed to the highest possible privacy protection standards. This means none of your data or search history will ever be made available to anyone, especially not to advertisers. Moreover, none of the queries made on any of our search engines are traceable back to the company, engine or users with which they originated.

Entity Extraction

If you need to classify news articles - to display them in a more organic way, or for data analysis purposes - we’ve got you covered. Our search algorithm includes sophisticated natural language processing designed to extract primary keywords from each article, and our API results include those keywords. This empowers your app to classify results by topic and easily parse their subject matter.
