AccuRanker Google Data Studio Connector Setup
Last updated on Tuesday, May 22, 2018
AccuRanker has its own Google Data Studio Connector, making it easy to create beautiful graphs and tables that show the incredible SEO results you have managed to achieve. Or the opposite. Since data always will come directly from the source and in no way can be manipulated.
What is Google Data Studio?
Google Data Studio is Google's free dashboard service. There are tons of so-called Connectors that make it easy to include data directly from other tools – these can be Adform, AdWords, Analytics, or AccuRanker.
How to Install the AccuRanker Google Data Studio Connector
You need to have a Google Data Studio account first. You can create an account for free if you do not have one. I strongly suggest that you try it out.
Go directly to the AccuRanker Google Data Studio Connector page to install the Connector. Here you need to tie your Google Data Studio account with your AccuRanker account. To make the process easy, ensure that you are already signed in to the correct AccuRanker account.
After this process, you are ready to utilize the Connector. Now you have three options. You can create an entirely new dashboard, work from a template, or work on an already existing SEO/digital/performance dashboard you have.
What to Show?
I would start showing the exact numbers, graphs, and tables you offer in your regular reporting and then gradually improve the dashboard with more insights or better ways to show your results.
However, I would always recommend including data on Share of Voice, rankings, and organic traffic. Then you can consider adding these metrics on specific keywords, tags, and pages or begin using more advanced filters to show exactly what you want.
The filters can be perfect for specific wishes from your client or manager. If you get the same question every month and have to use the time to get this data from several tools, Google Data Studio is an excellent way to answer these questions with a single dashboard.
Google Data Studio Provides Transparency
There are a lot of great SEO and digital marketing agencies out there, but there are also bad ones. One of the ways you can outperform some of the smaller agencies is by being completely transparent about the results you deliver.
Smaller agencies may not even send a monthly report or deliver any insights. I think monthly reporting should always be part of a long-lasting SEO project, and if you are doing good reporting, you will also be able to find insights yourself.
By using Google Data Studio for reporting, you cannot mess with the numbers. This means total transparency. If you have performed poorly, the dashboard will show. You can add comments to the dashboard, but you cannot edit any numbers without your client's knowledge.
