Authorize Connections

Third party integration with a wide variety of data sources including Google Analytics, Search Console, Google Drive, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn,  Twitter, and more begins with the account level authorization in your Account Settings > Authorized Connections screen.
