GoSquared Timeline enables you to see an overview of your website's traffic over time.

Timeline gives you an easy to understand graph of today's traffic (updated every minute) overlaid on top of a graph of yesterday's traffic.

The Timeline widget also allows for some historical context right alongside the real-time data being fed in. In the top right of the widget there's a drop down with the options to show 'This Week vs Last Week', 'Today vs Yesterday' and 'Today vs the same day last week'.

Quickly see where traffic spikes and dips have occurred. Hover over the adjacent "Notifications" widget to see any traffic alerts that have been triggered recently and to highlight them on the Timeline graph.

Plotting Significant Events on your Timeline

Tag traffic spikes with Milestones to make it easy to remember significant events. Simply click on the interesting feature and give it a name. Historical Milestone will be remember in the Trends dashboard too.

Adding a Milestone to your GoSquared Timeline

Automatically Plot Significant Events

Ever had a traffic spike or a sudden period of downtime and wondered why?

Perhaps your tweet got retweeted thousands of times causing tons of people to come to your site. Perhaps you sent out an email campaign so your entire mailing list dropped on to your site at the same time. Or maybe you pushed out a code change that broke everything.

Head to the Services tab and ddd your Twitter feed, your Github change log, your blog's post feed, or any other valid RSS feed URL and GoSquared will import them all into your account and show them on your Timeline. So you can match up the actions you make with their impact on your total site traffic.
