Getting Started with Microlink API

Microlink API is a powerful tool that provides metadata extraction and content generation from URLs. It allows developers to richly manipulate the data of a web page and analyze its contents. In order to use the Microlink API, you’ll need to register your account and get an API key. Once you have your API key, you can start making requests to the Microlink API.

How to use Microlink API

Using Microlink API is quite easy. You can make requests to the API and receive the response containing rich metadata about a webpage. Below are some examples of how you can use the Microlink API.

Java Script example:

const axios = require('axios');

const url = 'https://microlink.io';

const apiKey = 'YOUR_API_KEY';

 * Function to send a GET request to the Microlink API
async function getRequest() {
    try {
        const options = {
            headers: {
                Authorization: `Bearer ${apiKey}`,

        const response = await axios.get(

    } catch (error) {

// Call the getRequest function

In this example, we’re using axios to make a GET request to the Microlink API. We’re passing the URL of the webpage we want to extract metadata from, along with the Authorization header containing our API key. The response we get back from the API is stored in the response variable.

By parsing the response, you can extract different metadata such as title, description, author, and many more. Microlink also provides the ability to customize the output of metadata by specifying parameters in the URL.


Microlink API makes it easy to extract rich metadata and content from web pages. In this article, we’ve shown how you can use Microlink API with a few lines of code and the power of JavaScript. Try it out yourself and see what you can do with it!
