In this SEO podcast episode, Rebecca talks about Google Data Studio and walks through what it is and how you can use it within your marketing efforts.
Google Data Studio offers lots of options for creating custom reports for in-house usage or for external clients. As a default, the tool brings in data from Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and YouTube.
But that isn’t all. It also offers 120+ connectors to bring in data from additional sources. Google My Business, Amazon, Instagram, Salesforce, MailChimp, Paypal, Pinterest, and Twitter are just a sampling of additional data sources that can be used for integration and reporting.
Another great option is Google Data Studios allows you to view data across multiple websites and bring this data into one cohesive report.
All of these data sources and reporting options make Google Data Studio a very powerful tool because it connects the online world into one set of unified set of reports.
