Url Profiler – Problem Connecting To Data Source
If you use the Url Profiler and have had the application running for sometime, there’s a chance that you’ll see all 0s in your url_profile_results xlsx file on executing the Majestic report that comes free with the Urlprofiler. In the xlsx file generated, the 8th column will say “Problem connecting to data source” (see image).
At that point you will immediately hop on to Google and search this text. 😉
Restart the Url Profiler and don’t let it wait too long before executing your query. I have seen this happening with and without the Majestic API, so you thinking “Maybe the free Majestic version is not working and maybe I should buy a subscription” is not true. The only major difference between the free and paid Majestic data fetching on the UrlProfiler is the speed – the speed is lightening fast with the API.
You will probably have a hard time locating the API key on Majestic – so let me tell you that you do have access to the API on the Silver plan also (you don’t need the Platinum plan) and it can be obtained here. Good luck.
