SEMrush Analytics Field Deprecations - March 31st, 2020

In preparation for SEMrush's plans to remove and replace certain score-based metrics in the Backlinks report types, we will be deprecating the following fields on March 31st, 2020. We have also added the new score metrics that will replace those being removed, so that you can transition your reporting before the deprecation date.


The affected fields will be moved to the group "Deprecated". The fields will work as before until the 31st of March, 2020. After that the deprecated fields will return empty (NULL) values for all queries.


Here's a list of field names to be deprecated in each affected report and their replacement fields - Please check and update your queries if you are using any of these to remove or replace them:
