What is Google Looker Studio?
Looker Studio is a great, free data visualization tool from Google that lets you collect data in informative dashboards and reports that are easy to read, easy to share, and fully customizable.

How To Create Semantic SEO Reports with WordLift
The Semantic Web has changed the way we approach web content. As we know, Google is changing the way it crawls web pages, focusing not just on keywords (which are still important) but on concepts and then entities.
Adding structured data to your website means that you are enriching your data with information that allows Google and the search engines to better understand what the content of your website is about. This way you can get better rankings, more organic traffic and provide users with a more relevant user’s experience.
So, with structured data, you can make a difference for your business. However, it is often very difficult to show the SEO structured data value and thus a semantic SEO strategy.
If you have WordLift, we have the solution for you! You can use the Looker Studio Connector to understand and show others the results you have achieved by working with entities on your website. Let’s go and see how it can help you implement your semantic SEO strategy.
Getting Started With WordLift for Google Looker Studio
With WordLift Looker Studio Connector, you can create Semantic SEO reports by loading data from your Knowledge Graph right into Looker Studio and blend it with Search Console or any other web analytics platform.
The first step to start creating your semantic SEO report is to search for WordLift on the Google Looker Studio connectors page.
Just click on it and enter the WordLift key. And we have a GraphQL query ready for you, so you don’t need to do anything to get started. In case you are a power user and you know the query that you want to run, just continue.

Then be sure to keep checking the box “use report template for new report”, so you can get a shiny new report premade for you. Then click Connect. Here you can see the fields that come from the report. Finally, click Create Report!
At this point, you are close to creating your report, but two more steps are needed:
- To go to the managed data sources and add your Search Console data source: choose your website, choose URL Impressions anche choose Web Type, and then click on Create.
