Complete GSC Data The New Table Stakes in SEO - LocalU - 4-7-21

This was the deck that introduced the Google Search Console (GSC) API to lots and lots of folks who either hadn't heard of it or understood how powerful it really is.

In the deck we compare using the data via API vs native GSC tool.

The TL;DR is that most users will walk away wanting to use a tool like https://branch.tools or something similar because they'll see how much work they can get done, faster, while accessing actionable insights that were previously hidden.
