Examples of use

You can use tags in many ways. Tagging is the most flexible management system. 

  1. Indicate your clients. Tag analysis made for a specific client.
  2. Group queries under the tag for one specific website or even a single page – in this case, use URL as the tag name. 
  3. Are you working in a team? Tag queries created by your colleagues – using full name as a tag is a great way to manage your work. 
  4. Tag periods for measuring performance over time. Use months or quarters like "q2 2020" to reveal analysis created at a specific moment in the past. 
  5. What's the status of your work? Tag a query as "to do" or "done" to make sure that there is nothing left to check. 

Tip: These five ideas are just examples of using tags. You can tailor it to your current processes and use an unlimited number of tags.
