Using annotations in Google Analytics to add context

Using annotations in Google Analytics to add context

When you’re looking at your data inside Google Analytics it can be difficult to remember exactly what was happening on particular days. You might see a massive spike for a campaign or a seasonal dip for a local holiday. Now you might be able to open your calendar and do a quick check, but if you’re like me, then you probably don’t have every single campaign written down neatly (or in my case anywhere at all). This is where annotations within Google Analytics become super valuable.
