How will using the connector contribute to my Ahrefs account’s plan limits?

Usage of Ahrefs data through our Data Studio connectors will consume the plan limits against the tool that is being used. One exception is the Rank Tracker connector, which contains some data from Ahrefs Keywords Explorer. The relevant plan limits for Keywords Explorer will be consumed when data is retrieved for fields marked as such in the

reference.
