Fully Automatic

Like all of Diffbot's Automatic APIs, the Discussion API needs no rules or training. Send it any page containing a discussion and let Diffbot do the rest.

Text Analysis

Topics/tags are automatically generated for each post, and built-in sentiment analysis automatically analyzes each individual post to rate its overall positivity/negativity.

Get All the Pages

Long forum thread spanning multiple pages? No problem. Use the &maxPages argument to automatically concatenate as many pages as you need.

Comments & Reviews

Discussion API technology is built-in to the Article and Product APIs to automatically extract comments and reviews from article and product pages.

Crawl 'Em All

Pair the Discussion API with Crawlbot to automatically identify and extract all discussion threads across an entire site.
