Can we connect third party apps - Facebook Ads, Ahrefs, SEM Rush?

Can we connect third party apps to report on their stats since I saw there is no Data Studio API or SDK?

I want to report my Facebook Ads like Adwords and metrics from Ahrefs and SEM Rush.

 

Thanks

I'd love to connect Facebook and SEM Rush as well. I believe this doesn't exist at the moment, but I'm hoping the more we ask for it, the more likely it'll happen in a future release.

Yeah, if they release an API I will build it myself but for now maybe the solution is to use Google Sheets Add-on and connect the add-on as a data point?

Does the add-on pull from Facebook and SEM rush? I use it for GA but didn't realize it also connected to the others...

Hi folks,

 

There isn't a direct connection for Facebook at the moment - as you suggest, you'd have to pull the data out via the Facebook API, import it into a spreadsheet and then connect this. I use Supermetrics and Google Sheets to achieve this currently.

I see that after the 30 day trial it's paid so I guess I will code it myself Smiley Happy
