How to authorize access to GSC data

Parts of Visual SEO Studio integrate with Google Search Console via API. To use such integrations, you should grant the program access to GSC data.

Wherever within Visual SEO Studio you want to use a feature that integrates with the Google Search Console, you should grant to the program access to its data.

The authorization uses Google OAuth2 safe protocol to grant the piece of software a renewable access token, so the program will never need to know nor see your Google credentials.
The program will store locally an authorization token so the it will not have to ask for permission next time you need to access GSC data. The authorization can be withdrawn any time you want.

Whenever an authorization is needed, the program will prompt you this dialog window:
