Add local discussions, events, marketplace listings (and more) to your own website or app with our content APIs


In order to start building, you need to request access to our Displaying Content APIs

Nextdoor is where millions of verified neighbors, small businesses and public agencies gather to discuss local information, exchange goods and services, and build community. Now, with the help of Nextdoor APIs and Embeds, developers can display our public ‘anyone’ content on their own websites and apps.

Search API

Similar to search within the Nextdoor app, the Search API helps developers ‘search’ for public post(s), events, marketplace listings, and business pages within any geography on Nextdoor. The parameters accepted are lat long, radius, category and keywords. The response will return all posts on Nextdoor that match your query, along with the post-metadata such as: title, description, photos, comment and reaction count, neighborhood name etc. Content is ordered by relevance and recency for the expressed location(s).

  • Posts -> Retrieve public ‘anyone’ posts (and post metadata) from neighbors, agencies, and or businesses that match your search parameters in the last 30 days.
  • Marketplace Listings -> Returns active listings from our marketplace “For Sale & Free” that match your query parameters, along with listings metadata (price, location, photos, descriptions etc).
  • Events -> Get upcoming neighborhood events matching your search parameters, along with event description, start and end date, location etc ….coming soon
  • Business Pages -> Returns the claimed and/or recommended business page on Nextdoor matching your search query, along with page metadata (name, address, fave count) coming soon
