Is Alexa's Top available in a dataset format?

Several datasets exist, but include only basic information, like domains and their positions in the top.

What about other info, like category of the website, search visits, visitors locations, etc. as presented here: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/google.com ?


Alexa is a division of Amazon. They still have an API, but you need to access it as a paid service through AWS:

Alexa Web Information Service http://aws.amazon.com/awis/


Alexa Top Sites http://aws.amazon.com/alexatopsites/


I know that 1-2 years ago, Alexa had a free API for this on data.alexa.com. Now it returns a 404 error.

There are a few software out there that promise data from Alexa but actually they scrap the website which is illegal.

The only way I know is via Amazon web servers but it is a paid service. 0.15$/1000 requests. You can see details here AWS.

The price has changed to $0.0025 per URL.

    AWS API is very useful. I'll thankfully accept the answer if no workaround will be offered. – Anton Tarasenko Jan 12 '14 at 6:42
