Can I get a list of top sites from an API?

Yes. The Alexa Top Sites web service provides programmatic access to Alexa’s top sites data.

Using this service you can get lists of top sites globally or in a specific country.  The web service also returns the rank, reach, and pageviews per million data within a specific country.

To use the Alexa Top Sites service you will need to follow these Getting Started steps: https://aws.amazon.com/alexa-top-sites/getting-started/.

After you get started, we recommend reading the Technical documentation here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AlexaTopSites/latest/.

And then modifying one of the sample programs here to get the data you are interested in: https://aws.amazon.com/alexa-top-sites/getting-started/#ats_sample_code.
